Use and Permissions

Can I make copies of articles in, either in digital (PDF) format or print, to share with others?

As a ChurchLawAndTax member you are welcome to make copies for staff members for internal office use, which is defined as all who work at the same location in the same building. Permission is granted provided:

  • The content is not edited from the original version,
  • The copies are distributed without charge (including tuition or an entrance fee), and
  • The following credit line is inserted: Copyright [Year] Christianity Today. Used with permission. For additional information on keeping your church safe, legal, and financially sound visit and

You are in violation of copyright law when you make copies for individuals who are outside your internal office. For example, you cannot make copies for a client, members of a denomination, group of churches, or a parachurch organization.

If you would like to make Church Law & Tax resources available to these groups, a special use agreement is required. To submit your request for review, please contact us through our form.
