Inspecting a church web site like inspecting a book

  • Front cover (First glance)
  • Table of contents (statement of faith)
  • Author blurbs (Leadership page)
  • Flip through pages (recent sermons)
  • Publisher (Affiliation, network, convention, denomination, association)
  • Foreward at front, recommendations on back (Influences, pastor’s “likes” on FB, resource links)
  • Reading the first few chapters (visiting for a few Sundays)
  • Committing (joining church body life; expressing commitment in membership)
