General Info

Published monthly by the Christian Reformed Church in North America. The Banner magazine shows how the Christian faith in its Reformed expression makes sense for today's world. We hope you'll find our articles—from news to features to review—lively, informative, inspiring, and challenging.

We believe that Jesus Christ calls us all to gratefully follow him in every area of life. That gives our daily living eternal significance and purpose. Whether we're addressing subjects like parenting, movies, politics, church ministries, or the society we live in, The Banner explores all such issues from the perspective of the good news that in Christ God is reconciling the world to himself. All who believe in Jesus are empowered by God's Spirit to serve as ambassadors of that reconciliation.

The Christian Reformed Church decided at Synod 2004 that the print version of The Banner will no longer be a subscription-based magazine. Instead it will be a partially subsidized publication sent to every household in the Christian Reformed Church. If you have any questions about The Banner or for more information, please contact us at, or call 1-800-777-7270. 

The Banner is a member of the Associated Church Press and the Evangelical Press Association.
