Refuge Records was a Christian record label founded in 1980 by Greg Nelson and Ray Nenow.[1]

Refuge Records became an important label in the development of the West Coast Christian alternative music scene. The label focused primarily on modern rock, new wave, punk and hard rock music.

One imprint of Refuge was Pure Metal records, although Star Song Communications bought out that branch in 1990.[2]

This label should not be confused with the Refuge imprint which is a subsidiary of MCA Records/Universal.
