Modern Believing is the journal of Modern Church. It is the Journal of Theological Liberalism. It publishes articles in Modern Theology, Practical Theology, Theological Ethics, and in any academic area which promotes Liberalism in Theology and Church.

Modern Believing has a century long record of contributions from church leaders, established theologians, and newly-emerging theological minds. It is committed to high academic standards and to high accessibility, and it values each equally. It seeks to promote a critical, creative and constructive spirit in theological enquiry. It provides opportunities for new voices in the Academy and in the Church to become heard.

Modern Believing is published quarterly and indexed in the ATLA religion database.
