We are a small group of God-loving Christians determined to check every church in the country. We work to expose corruption, abuse, legalism, materialism, and wolves within local Christian churches by answering a list of questions and digging for as much information on that church as possible.

Our mission is pretty simple: We want to investigate every church and report the real deal. What they actually believe, what they teach, what they expect of their members, if they preach tithing, and so forth, so you can decide which church is best for you based on the facts. Not what's been advertised to you, and not what would otherwise take you months to figure out on your own.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We are a small group of non-denominational Christians who abide by what many would call the core essentials of Christianity, but to be more specific, we are currently working on writing up our own Statement of Faith. We will post it on this page once finished.
HOW WE OPERATE
Our methods are simple. We send a list of questions to each church's staff or lead pastor, and they can choose to answer the questions or not, but either way, we investigate each church thoroughly to find the answers to every question and report our findings in each church check. We post the facts and only the facts, so every churchgoer can decide for themselves which church is for them based on real information.
Sarah & Joe
Sarah & Joe Young are non-denominational Christians who were both raised in the American Evangelical Christian church.
As a result of the experiences they endured in those churches and the frustration they've had in finding a good church in adulthood, they believe they've been called to a ministry to check churches for the Christian community. Not only to help churchgoers find the church that best suits their specific desires based on the facts, but also to help them avoid churches that exhibit signs of abuse, deception, and other red flags.
Sarah Young is the Senior Editor of the CMC Blog and Check My Church's Database. She works daily to better equip and educate herself for the CMC Ministry by taking Bible Courses, reading Seminary level works, and doing independent Bible studies on a regular basis.
WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
In our own frustration with the many Christian churches in our local community, my husband Joe and I wondered why no one has created a Church Review website. I mean, why not? We could have used one! We were tired of church hunting, frustrated with being deceived only to find the truth after wasting days and sometimes weeks at one church, and curious about how many other Christians found themselves in the same boat. Moving back to our home church in Salt Lake City, Utah relieved all of the stressful church hopping on our end, but when our pastor, Shawn McCraney, came up with the same exact idea, we knew it had to be a good one. What are the chances, right? So, here we are. Checking every church, so you don't have to.
