What Does 9Marks Do?

At 9Marks, we write books, articles, and book reviews. We host conferences, record interviews, and consult with church leaders. In short, we do everything we can to help pastors, future pastors, and church members see what a biblical church looks like, and to take practical steps for becoming one.

In the first years of the organization’s life, Mark Dever’s voice was the sole public voice. Yet the principles are biblical, and a small movement of church leaders are jumping in to write and speak.

9Marks Books

A growing stable of writers are contributing to the 9Marks series of books. Mark Dever’s books are the standards: Nine Marks of a Healthy Church, The Gospel & Personal Evangelism, and more. But check out Thabiti Anyabwile’s book on being a healthy church member, Greg Gilbert’s book on the gospel, Michael Lawrence’s on biblical theology, Michael McKinley’s on church planting, and more.
