Where Did We Come From?
In the late 1980s, Michael Horton (host of White Horse Inn and editor in chief of Modern Reformation) began an organization called Christians United for Reformation (CURE). CURE’s purpose was to remind American evangelicals of their biblical roots and the rich faith and practice recovered during the Protestant Reformation that had been largely abandoned in the mad dash to relevance. CURE didn’t represent just one denomination, but tried to include as many different Reformation voices in the conversation as possible. More than a ministry of one man or congregation, CURE drew on the wisdom of many to identify and correct the problems that plagued evangelical and Reformational churches, alike. One of the first efforts to broaden their influence came in 1990 with the launch of the weekly radio broadcast, White Horse Inn, with hosts Michael Horton, Kim Riddlebarger, and Rod Rosenbladt. [For more on why we chose the name White Horse Inn, click here.] In 1992, the organization began publishing a magazine, Modern Reformation, to apply timeless Christian doctrines to the questions of the day.Listen to Radio Show Read the Magazine
I stumbled across your radio program in 2007 and through it God has changed my life. I was saved ten years ago, and until 2007 had only been exposed to non-reformed biblical teaching.Listener, New England

Our Six Core Values
The five "solas" of the Reformation are more than slogans to be recovered; they are the messages that will renew the church's mission in our age.
Gospel-centered preaching that rightly distinguishes between law and gospel rescues the church from "Christless Christianity" while enabling Christians to grow in grace.
Word and Sacrament ministry realigns the church's mission and identity from program-driven pragmatism to the means of grace that Christ has ordained for the creation, sustenance, and expansion of his kingdom.
A properly missional mindset will identify the church as distinct from but engaged with the world, encouraging individual Christians to pursue their God-honoring vocations.
In order to know what they believe and why they believe it, Christians need to be well catechized and grounded in the central doctrines of the faith.
Withstanding the onslaught of heresy and persecution requires a confessing church grounded in the witness of the ages and animated by deeds of loving service and witness.
Where are we going?
Whatever new technology comes our way is being utilized to spread the central truths of the Reformation. Our vision is to see a “modern reformation” take hold in the hearts and lives of Christians.Join the Conversation
