About Sola Media

Sola Media—through Core Christianity, White Horse Inn, Modern Reformation, and Theo Global—endeavors to faithfully proclaim the truth of God’s word all over the world in accessible and meaningful formats. We serve as a resource for churches and individuals, equipping them to proclaim truth.

Since our founding 1990 by Dr. Michael Horton, we have expanded from our original White Horse Inn radio show on KKLA in Los Angeles to a multimedia platform downloaded and distributed millions of times and in over 200 countries.

Our work is rooted in Christ and his gospel as proclaimed in the Scriptures, articulated in the Christian confessions, and summarized in the five Solas of the Protestant Reformation: Scripture alone, by grace alone, through faith alone, through Christ alone, and for God’s glory alone.

Through conversational theology, we feature voices from four confessional Christian traditions—Anglicans, Baptists, Lutherans, and Reformed—without minimizing our differences but engaging in respectful dialogue while remaining united around the core truths of the gospel. With this clear focus on the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ, together, we believe that we can and will see a modern reformation with Christ at the center of our lives and the global church.
