What is the site review process?
Posted by on 16 December 2010 01:45 PM
OurChuch.Com is committed to creating a community of Christian websites. For that reason, we review every website submitted to be certain that each and every website is owned and operated by a person who shares our faith. It is often extremely difficult to discern from the content of a website whether it is Christian or not. There are many religious groups today that sound very much like Christianity and even claim to be Christian, but are not. Groups such as Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, and Unitarians are a few of the best-known examples. Others may include "community church" or "Church of God" in their names but deny essential elements of the Christian faith that the better known Community Churches and Churches of God profess.

Because non-Christian groups can sound so much like Christians on the surface, we believe it is best not to try to interpret the content of a website but rather ask each website owner to do one of the following:

  1. Indicate your Christian beliefs when creating your site
  2. Email us a statement of beliefs
  3. Add a statement of beliefs to the website and email us when it's ready
  4. Complete this sentence and email it to us: "I know I am a Christian because…"

Please note that if we do not receive a response within two weeks the site will be suspended automatically.
