A Biblically Sound church

Calling the congregation to express their love for God and to communicate with Him and grow in relationship with Him. It will involve repentance and supplication, asking for wisdom and guidance, and seeking God’s Moral will in all things.

All churches on My Church Finder must at a minimum be Biblically sound to be listed without a “Would Not Recommend” (WNR) rating. Churches that do not fit the “Biblically sound” criteria, regardless of their other stances, automatically earn a WNR rating. Many churches choose to be unlisted and not take the survey rather than earn a WNR rating.

A Biblically based church that is culturally aware with a Biblical Worldview

A Biblically based church that is culturally aware with a Biblical Worldview will, in addition to the above, be committed to countering the culture with God’s objective moral truths, teaching regularly on other religions, the Biblical view of Family, Sexuality & Marriage. It will be Pro-life and encourage the congregation to stand boldly for righteousness in the face of the current cultural decay. It will advocate for Biblical values in the arts, entertainment and the marketplace. It will teach Apologetics and a defense of the faith and why Christianity is true vs other religions. It will teach the evils of Marxism, Liberation Theology, Critical Race Theory, DEI, Wokeism, One World Government and any new depravity and corruption that the world will attempt.

A Biblically based church that is culturally aware with a Biblical Worldview and is legislatively active but non-socialistic

A Biblically based church that is culturally aware with a Biblical worldview and is active in legislation but non-socialistic will, in addition to all of the above, be involved with educating the church and be involved with all legislative matters concerning Morality, Family, Sexuality, Marriage, Life, the freedom to evangelize and the protection of Life, Liberty and Property. It will recognize that the Church is the conscience of the government and take that calling seriously. It will understand the legislative responsibilities given to the Church in Exodus 18 and teach God’s plan for government. It will fight for moral justice, not “social justice.” It will understand that the government’s role is to protect Unalienable Rights and not to manage the economy or provide charity or free goods and services to citizens. This is because the latter takes by force the fruits of labor from one person and gives it to another, it forcibly violates the Unalienable Right of an individual to do as he wills with the fruits of his own labor. See for a full explanation of rights vs goods. And just as important, this kind of church will encourage its congregation to run for office and vote and be involved in campaigns. 

Note, while all churches don’t cover all aspects above, our rating system, which is based on questionnaires filled out by the actual church, allows you to find a church that is closest to meeting the above goals. 

We encourage all believers to be diligent and act as Bereans, continuously testing and checking their pastors’ and churches’ teachings against the Word of God and verifying the surveys they have filled out for this listing match their preaching and actions.
