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.

Print Magazine Distribution
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. Need to get on the list? See our subscribe page.

Mobile App
The Banner's mobile app gives you real-time access to the latest news and articles. Browse a PDF of the latest issue and see what we're posting to our social media channels. In addition, check out feeds from other CRC channels, such as The Network, CRC News, Today Devotional, Prayer Guide, Think Christian, videos, church finder, and more.

NOTE: The current app is optimized for phones, but can still be used on Android or iPad tablets. If there is sufficient demand for a tablet-optimized version, we may release one in the future.
