HistoryEdit

Launched initially as an online publication, the newspaper was founded in March 2004. [3] The objective is to deliver news, information, and commentaries relevant to Christians across denominational lines and to bring greater attention to activities of Christians and Christian groups in United States and around the world. It moved its headquarters from San Francisco, California to Washington, D.C. in 2006.

The newspaper refrained from taking an editorial on candidates for political office until February 29, 2016, when it told readers " to back away from Donald Trump", calling him a "misogynist and philanderer" and "mercurial and chameleon-like", citing his refusal to disassociate himself from racist groups, lack of commitment to freedom of the press, and "his untruthfulness, questionable business practices, reported association with organized crime, and abrupt changes in fundamental positions".[4]
