The Gospel Coalition seeks to help people know God’s Word with their minds, love God fully with their hearts, and engage the world with grace and truth.
In a world that is noisier than ever, with so many opinionated voices and dubious ideas vying for our attention, where do we find truth? Whose voice do we trust?
The Gospel Coalition believes the answer to both questions is Jesus Christ, and we exist to help people navigate the dizzying, deafening noise by hearing more clearly his voice, “the words of eternal life” (John 6:68) that are the only source of ballast and whose death provides the only source of true transformation in our unsteady, sin-sick world.
Through multimedia content, events, books, and international outreach, we seek to communicate both the costly call (Matt. 16:24) and the comforting consolation of Christ (Matt. 11:29-30), whose gospel presents both a countercultural challenge and an audacious invitation to any who would hear it.
The Gospel Coalition is a group of pastors and churches in the Reformed tradition that put the gospel of Jesus Christ at the center of all activities. The Gospel Coalition’s Foundation Documents outline the beliefs, mission, and objectives of the organization. More than just a statement of faith, these documents influence and impact the activities of The Gospel Coalition and reflect the passionate goal of furthering the gospel of Jesus Christ, multiplying His disciples, and upholding Biblical truth as the standard in the Church.
In Don Carson’s article, The Gospel Coalition is a Coalition, he explains that “we are not a monolith; we are a coalition. What holds us together is our shared commitment to the gospel of Jesus Christ, as expressed in our Foundation Documents—our Confessional Statement and our Theological Vision of Ministry”.
The Gospel Coalition’s Council is a collection of pastors and qualified elders who provide direction and leadership to TGC. They meet annually for fellowship, discussion, planning, accountability, and prayer around the gospel of our Lord Jesus. Aiming to bring biblical conviction and pastoral sensitivity to bear on a range of pressing contemporary issues, the Council is committed to shepherding the next generation of church leaders in line with TGC’s foundation documents.
The Gospel Coalition staff serve in a variety of areas including operations, editorial, women’s initiatives, events, international outreach, web, and more.
