Is Nurturing Faith independent?

Yes. Nurturing Faith is fully autonomous, guided by a self-perpetuating Board of Directors to ensure editorial freedom and operational responsibility. However, our nature is to be cooperative — wherever we find trusting partners with whom we can do good things together. 

Is Nurturing Faith new?

Our roots go back to 1983, but we keep evolving as times and technology change. And we’ve expanded into a larger publishing enterprise. Nurturing Faith is the trademarked brand of our various publications, books and experiences. 

Is Nurturing Faith affiliated with a denominational group?

We were born into and continue to affirm the historic Baptist tradition of freedom of conscience and religious liberty for all. But we understand that not all Baptists today share those values and many who are not Baptist do. So we relate to a variety of Christians seeking to live in thoughtful and compassionate ways.

May I write for Nurturing Faith?

Nurturing Faith Journal is filled with original content. Therefore, unsolicited articles are welcomed — if not published (or submitted) elsewhere or posted on the Internet.

What makes your publication unique?

Nurturing Faith Journal & Bible Studies, published six times a year, carries a scholar yet applicable weekly Bible lesson used by many Sunday classes and other groups, as well as individuals. Far-ranging articles in the journal — aimed at hearts and minds — provide insights into the current context in which faithful living occurs. And the vast majority of that content is exclusive to the journal. 

Who reads Nurturing Faith Journal & Bible Studies?

Thousands of readers are spread across the nation and overseas — with our largest circulation in North Carolina. Many readers have individual subscriptions (print, digital or both) or receive discounted group subscriptions through churches that use the journal for weekly Bible study curriculum.

How do the journal and web work together?

The web provides daily news updates, blogs and lots of other information. However, the content in Nurturing Faith Journal & Bible Studies is only available to subscribers. So don’t miss out! Subscribers also have online access (via password) to all the Teaching Resources needed to teach the Bible Studies. So, do both — subscribe to the journal and visit the web site regularly.

Would my support make a difference?

It sure would. There are many good ways to support this publishing ministry through gifts to Baptists Today, Inc., the charitable organization that produces all the Nurturing Faith efforts. Click here to learn more.
