About Warner Press
At Warner Press, our goal is to equip the Church for ministry. We strive to help churches and Christian organizations communicate better within their walls, encourage spiritual growth and biblical literacy, and share the hope of Christ and the good news of the gospel with a broken world.
Warner Press publishes and distributes Christian products worldwide, including ministry resources, church supplies, kids’ books, and greeting cards. We also own and produce artwork by the artist Warner Sallman, which includes some of the most recognizable images of Christ known throughout the world.
Warner Press is located in Anderson, Indiana and is a not-for-profit organization.
As a Christ-centered company, we are driven by our core values. Our purpose is to equip the Church with creative products and solutions, combined with exceptional service, to glorify God, advance His Kingdom, and give hope to future generations.
Our Core Values
- The Scripture: We firmly believe that the Bible is the inspired and authoritative Word of God. The Scriptures fully guide and equip us for what God wants us to do. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
- Servanthood: We believe that God has uniquely called us in this time for His purpose. The community we serve, whether it is customers, fellow employees, suppliers, partners or those who cross our daily paths, is vital in our quest to achieve our mission and vision. We believe that we must serve each other as Christ has called us to serve. (Colossians 3:23-24)
- Character: Character is the manifestation of Jesus Christ in our lives. We will conduct our business with honesty, integrity and Christian ethics, which will produce the highest standards in ministry. (Luke 16:10)
- Stewardship: Whether it is time, treasure, or talent, we are called to effectively manage the assets God has entrusted to our control. (Luke 12:48)
In 1881, Daniel Sydney Warner first published The Gospel Trumpet, a new religious periodical. The Gospel Trumpet Publishing Company was established as the voice and publishing house of the Church of God Reformation Movement. The movement was founded on Christian unity and holiness.
The Gospel Trumpet Publishing Company was located in several cities before its final move to Anderson, Indiana in 1906. The publishing company, whose name was changed to Warner Press in 1963, was the center of the Church of God Reformation Movement.
Through the years, Warner Press expanded in size and product offerings to include many Christian gift and stationery items. In 1996, the decision was made to refocus our purpose. Today, our mission and product offering center on meeting the needs of the Church. Warner Press provides and distributes church and ministry resources, children’s products and greeting cards for our partners in ministry.
