Overview

Credo is a digital magazine focused on teaching “what accords with sound doctrine” (Titus 2:1). It presents Gospel-centered articles, promotes the Gospel as defined by the solas of the Reformation, offers contributions from a diverse ecclesial background, and celebrates the doctrines that mark the Baptist tradition. Published quarterly, Credo Magazine provides articles from today’s foremost pastors and scholars. It addresses vital Christian and pastoral issues, highlights monumental figures in church history, interviews emerging leaders, and reviews recent Christian literature.

The Logos version of Credo Magazine is designed to encourage and stimulate your study and understanding of the numerous topics studied in each issue.

In addition, you can perform powerful searches by topic and find what other authors, scholars, and theologians have to say about B. B. Warfield, discipleship, grace, and much more.

Praise for the Print Edition

Credo Magazine is quickly becoming a wonderful go-to resource for up-to-date interviews, book reviews, and articles. It’s really an embarrassment of riches.

Justin Taylor, vice president of editorial, Crossway

This is undoubtedly the most beautiful . . . Christian magazine I’ve come across. Content is great too. It is a fine example of how to use technology for God’s glory.

David Murray, professor of Old Testament and practical theology, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary

Individual Titles

Volume 2, Issue 5: Francis Schaeffer at 100

  • Editor: Matthew Barrett
  • Publisher: Credo Magazine
  • Publication Date: October 2012
  • Pages: 75

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The year 2012 is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Francis Schaeffer (1912–1984). It is difficult to think of an evangelical figure in the twentieth century who so seriously engaged the philosophies and ideologies of the secular world and set them over against the Christian worldview than Francis Schaeffer.

But Schaeffer was no ordinary evangelical. The man wore knickers and knee high socks when he lectured, sporting not only long hair, but a goat’s-chin beard! Most importantly, Schaeffer did not fear man, but feared God. Not only did he engage secular worldviews, but he confronted his fellow evangelicals, even rebuking them for doctrinal concession and compromise.

As many have observed, it is not an overstatement to say that the Schaeffers transformed, reshaped, and, in many ways, reformed American evangelicalism. Those writing in this new issue of Credo Magazine are proof. Each writer bears testimony to how Francis Schaeffer has made a monumental impact on how we understand and articulate the Christian faith and life in the world of ideas.

Volume 2, Issue 4: Old Princeton

  • Editor: Matthew Barrett
  • Publisher: Credo Magazine
  • Publication Date: August 2012
  • Pages: 78

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Each of us are indebted to those theologians of ages past who have gone before us, heralding the gospel, and even fighting to their last breath to keep the God of that Gospel high and lifted up. It is hard to think of a group of men more worthy of this praise than those of the Old Princeton heritage. Men like Archibald Alexander, Charles Hodge, B. B. Warfield, J. Gresham Machen, and many others, stand in this rich heritage, men who defended the faith once for all delivered to the saints against the ever-growing threat of liberalism around them.

Since this year marks the 200th anniversary of Old Princeton (1812–2012), it is fitting that we devote ourselves to remembering and imitating these great theologians of yesterday, not because they are great in and of themselves, but because their example points us to the great and mighty God we worship. And who better to introduce us to these Old Princetonians than James M. Garretson, W. Andrew Hoffecker, Fred Zaspel, and D. G. Hart? Not to mention a very in-depth interview with Paul Helseth on Old Princeton and the debate over “right reason.” May these articles and interviews inspire us so that in our own day we might experience a revival of this rich orthodoxy that has stood the test of time.

Feature Articles:

  • “Archibald Alexander: Architect of Old Princeton” by James M. Garretson
  • “Charles Hodge and ‘Old Princeton’” by W. Andrew Hoffecker
  • “B. B. Warfield: Champion on the Faith” by Fred G. Zaspel
  • “J. Gresham Machen, Old Princeton, and the Presbyterian Controversy” by D. G. Hart

Volume 2, Issue 3: Chosen by Grace

  • Editor: Matthew Barrett
  • Publisher: Credo Magazine
  • Publication Date: May 2012
  • Pages: 74

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The biblical doctrine of election is offensive. It collides with our demand for human autonomy. It removes our will from the throne. And it exposes our nakedness, revealing us to be the sinners that we truly are, undeserving of divine grace and mercy. But when our eyes are opened to its glory, we begin to see that the doctrine of election leads us to worship, praise, and give thanks to our sovereign Lord. We recognize that we, as sinners, deserve nothing less than eternal condemnation. And yet, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ has chosen us in Christ before the foundation of the world! In love, he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, not on the basis of anything we have done, but purely according to the purpose of his will (Eph. 1:3–5). It is this doctrine of election that Paul says is to lead us to praise the glorious grace of God (Eph. 1:6).

Volume 2, Issue 2: Make Disciples of All Nations

  • Editor: Matthew Barrett

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:19-20). These words, spoken by Jesus after his resurrection, are famously known as The Great Commission. As disciples of Christ, it is our great joy to go and tell the nations about the good news of salvation for sinners through Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior. Credo Magazine’s March issue will seek to ignite a passion for missions. And what better timing as this year marks the 200th anniversary of Adoniram and Ann Judson setting sail aboard the Caravan to take the Gospel to Burma.

This issue argues for the exclusivity of the Gospel, especially in light of the movement known as inclusivism. It answers questions like: Can those who have never heard the Gospel of Christ be saved? Will everyone be saved in the end or will some spend an eternity in hell? Must someone have explicit faith in Christ to be saved?

  • “The Fate of the Unevangelized and the Need for Faith in Christ” by Todd Miles
  • “Can Inclusivism be Supported by the OT?” by Todd Borger

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Is Scripture inspired by God or is it merely the work of man? Peter writes, “For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit” (2 Pet. 1:21). The October issue affirms the inspiration and inerrancy of Scripture as doctrines that are faithful to the testimony of Scripture itself.
