Why we do what we do
Authentic Media is wholly owned by Authentic Christian Trust (ACT), which means that by working with Authentic Media, you are directly supporting the mission of ACT - to "proclaim the Authentic Christian Life" that is the real, genuine Christian life - where He is alive in us.
How we work
First we listen really carefully as you tell us about your organisation and what you're trying to do. Then we will work with you to come up with a plan and implement it. This might look like designing a new logo or website. It may be helping with your marketing strategy or perhaps you're looking to communicate what you do through a video. Whatever it is, we get excited about helping organisations that promote the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We see Authentic as a gift from God. It’s not ours. It’s His – all of it. We believe that God has given us a clear mandate for being authentic in the marketplace. That means living and working with our eyes fixed on Jesus, regardless of the consequences.
To share His life (the life of the LIVING Lord Jesus) with all people we encounter. We know we’re called to be different, or as some translations say, ‘set apart’, so we want to do this with all aspects of our work; how we work, how we charge, how we treat our staff, how we spend money…basically, how we live!
What we do is up to the Lord Jesus. After all, it is His life, not ours. Our team are highly skilled and experienced in graphic design, video production, web design, photography, strategic planning and more. Our focus is working with Christian ministries, churches and Christian-led businesses.
