We help churches work together to make disciples of all nations

The Biblical Recorder was founded in 1833 to build trust among North Carolina Baptists and beyond. Truth and transparency are the lights that guide us.

Our team is committed to high reporting standards as we explore creative solutions for publishing content on print and digital platforms. We also strive to create a Christian news media environment where advertisers and ministry partners feel confident about sharing their message with our readers.

News is our process.

Trust is our product.

Serving N.C. Baptists and beyond since 1833

We are grateful for our near two century reputation and rich history. Seeing how God has used the Biblical Recorder through the decades is a joy and makes us thankful for His blessing. To explore our history or to read some of the first papers published, check out the links below.

“a paper to rely upon; a paper to trust; a paper to take to one’s home, to one’s heart; a paper to love and to cherish”
