Christianity Today magazine

Christianity Today magazine is the definitive voice offering the most complete coverage of the Church in the world today. It informs, counsels, and challenges readers with interviews, feature articles, thoughtful essays and much more. Every issue provides insightful commentary, penetrating interviews with leading Christian thinkers, and theological analysis on current issues, trends, people and news events that impact people of faith.

Christianity Today delivers honest, relevant commentary from a biblical perspective, covering the whole spectrum of choices and challenges facing Christians today.

In CT's founding documents, Billy Graham describes his dream to have one hundred correspondents around the world who are lifting up the stories and ideas of the people of God. We pursue that vision wholeheartedly today through our Global Initiative.

It’s easy to grow discouraged in the United States when our vision is too small. But the big picture of what God is doing around the world even now is immense, captivating, and encouraging.

The Global Initiative forms a network that allows all believers to feel connected to the churches in their region and the Church around the world.

Population(s) Served

The North American church is more varied than ever, with tremendous vitality in younger and more diverse communities.

The Big Tent Initiative aims to better represent the ethnic and racial diversity of the North American church across the entirety of the ministry—from our team to our content, resources, members, and audiences.

As Billy Graham wrote, “Christianity Today has its origin in a deepfelt desire to express historic Christianity to the present generation.”

Through biblical wisdom and beautiful storytelling, CT aims in all its work to shape and show the unity of the Body of Christ.
