About Us

Purpose

Decision magazine and decisionmagazine.com exist to communicate the Good News of Jesus Christ, to inform and challenge readers about key cultural and Biblical issues, and to extend the ministry of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Our readers include subscribers and donors in more than 75 countries.

History

In 1960, sensing that Christians needed a resource to help them navigate the ever-changing world, Billy Graham launched Decision magazine. For nearly 60 years, the publication has continued to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ to readers around the world.

“Our publication is designed for people who are busily engaged in a secular world where there is tremendous competition for their time,” wrote Billy Graham in the first issue.

 The need is even greater today. Not only has the culture become more secular, often it is blatantly hostile to Biblical truth and Christian faith. Decision, the Evangelical Voice For Today, exposes and counters the ever-increasing attacks on the authority of God’s Word, religious liberty, the sanctity of life, God’s plan for marriage and other issues of concern for believers.

And in keeping with BGEA’s tradition of using technology and mass media to reach the world with the truth—and to inform Christians and equip them to appropriately respond to today’s issues—Decisionmagazine.com launched in April 2019. Although Decision has had an online presence for years, this new digital platform takes the content a step further, supplementing the print edition with daily breaking news and special web features to help believers understand the issues and stand firm on the truth of the Word of God, the Holy Bible.
