Our Mission

Equipping Christians to renew their minds, serve the church,
and create culture to the glory of God.

Our Vision

The church grown up into the fullness of Christ

Our Cause: Beautiful Orthodoxy

In a world in desperate need of truth, goodness and beauty, Christianity Today strengthens the church by richly communicating the breadth of the true, good and beautiful Gospel.

For the Church …

Since 1956, Christianity Today has challenged the church with real-world content that is timely, compelling, insightful, balanced—and biblical.

Christianity Today is a magazine. But, it's much more than that.

Christianity Today is a leading, nonprofit media ministry for the evangelical church with 6 print publications, several digital-only publications, and practical web and mobile resources that together reach over 3.5 million people every month.

Christianity Today publishes a multitude of resources, in various formats, that Christian leaders everywhere trust. But, it's much more than that.

Christianity Today changes the people who change the world.

Men and women—in the U.S. and abroad—who are serious about their faith. Leaders and influencers—young and old—who are serious about wanting their lives to be used by God as a counterculture for the common good.

Today Christianity Today is more than a magazine.

And, in the future, we will be too as we advocate for the church, shape the evangelical conversation, bring important issues to the forefront, and provide practical solutions for church leaders.
