We think we have
the world's largest and most accurate on-line directory of churches
of Christ. We are constantly harvesting public records from other
directories, and list all directories
that we regularly review. We also rely on lots and lots of volunteers
(maybe you?) who know churches we do not know about. Anyone can
submit new church data at any time.
All information submitted
to ChurchZip and/or emailed to ChurchZip people is subject to being
placed on the Internet for anyone to see, with or without editing.
We normally edit every entry a little, to ensure consistency, and/or
to add data from other sources. We may use a variety of other public
sources, including the Internet to verify information submitted
to ChurchZip, and/or to add additional information to whatever anyone
We collect and save all data provided by all browsers, including
user agent data, IP address, referrers, proxy server, etc. and use
them in any way that may or may not further ChurchZip objectives.
ChurchZip is a ministry,
not a business. Because of this, we do not need, or ask for money
from anyone. We do limited commercial advertising on the site and
rule out advertisers who are determined to be inconsistent with our goals.
For the hotel reservations link,
ChurchZip gets paid a fee for each night actually booked, and a small percentage
of all hotel charges linked to such on-line reservations. This activity
lowers the cost of running ChurchZip.
Our overarching goal
is to make it easy to find the church of Christ wherever someone
might want to find one.
By offering up each
congregation's own local web site, we encourage further inquiry
into each congregation's practices.
No one on earth
has an "authorized" list of "true" churches,
certainly not ChurchZip.
Of course practices
vary widely among churches, and people want to find churches having
practices they can enjoin.
Churches listed in
ChurchZip are limited to those disclosing certain highly distinctive
(and measurable) New Testament practices. We list only those
churches 1) not served by any official denominational directory,
2) those practicing exclusive use of acappella music during worship
services, and 3) those adhering to New Testament names to
describe themselves and their leader's roles or titles.
to help people find all of these congregations, worldwide, and
Why do we limit this
list? Most people using ChurchZip are looking for churches just
such as these.
