The Gospel Coalition

The Gospel Coalition, or TGC, is a web publishing network of “evangelical churches in the Reformed tradition,” founded in 2005 by theologian D. A. Carson and pastor Tim Keller.[1][2] TGC describe their mission as being “deeply committed to renewing our faith in the gospel of Christ and to reforming our ministry practices to conform fully to the Scriptures.”[3] Featuring contributors from a broad geographic and denominational spectrum (Anglicans, Baptists, Free Church pastors, Independents, Presbyterians), The Gospel Coalition, Carson wrote in 2018, is “not a monolith; we are a coalition. What holds us together is our shared commitment to the gospel of Jesus Christ.”[4] As TGC describes itself in a promotional video, “We are not united by culture, nationality, or politics, but by the cross of Jesus Christ.”[5] In the resources it produces, TGC seeks to apply Scripture and gospel-centered approaches to contemporary culture, current events, and issues in everyday life.
