We are Christian Ultra-Libertarians determined to check every church we can to protect God's people from oppression, abuse, exploitation, coercive control, and other harmful, cult-like treatment. Our Church Checks are investigative reports that include as much information on a church as we can find, including everything from the basics of what a church believes and practices to an in-depth red flag report that describes any harmful behaviors we find in the church.

It's simple. We investigate local Christian churches that show red flags of abuse and other harmful behaviors and report the real deal to protect the Body of Christ from wolves in sheep's clothing. We also report what churches actually believe, what they teach, what they expect of their members, if they preach tithing, and so forth. You decide which church is best for you based on the facts, rather than the carefully constructed image the church has propagated for the purpose of popularity, rather than truth. Our mission is the truth to protect the sheep, plain and simple.


We are a small group of non-denominational, Ultra-Libertarian Christians who abide by what many would call the core essentials of Christianity but to be more specific, please check out our Statement of Faith below.


Like our Mission, our methods are simple. We contact a church's staff or lead pastor, ask questions, and investigate, but whether the church's leadership staff is helpful or not, we investigate thoroughly to find the answer to every question, then report our findings in each Church Check & Red Flag Report. We post the facts and our observations, so every churchgoer can decide for themselves which church is for them based on the truth.  


My husband Joe and I (Sarah Young) were both raised in the Evangelical Christian Church. We've been married since 2009 and have three children. We started Check My Church as a church review blog in 2019 that was mostly focused on my personal opinions of local churches, but as I continue to learn and grow in this journey, my reports have developed into more informative and thorough investigative reports. Over the past four years, we have worked and continue to work to become experts in discerning the truth and investigating churches in multiple ways, and as we continue, we hope our knowledge helps protect the Body of Christ from wolves in sheep's clothing.


In our frustration with many Christian churches in our community, my husband Joe and I wondered why no one has created a Church Review website where people could look up their church and find out everything there is to know, including red flags of practices and behaviors we wanted to avoid. We could've used one in all our years of church hopping. We were tired and frustrated with being deceived only to find the truth after wasting days and sometimes weeks at a 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 the stressful church hopping on our end, but when our friend and brother in Christ, Shawn McCraney of, came up with the same idea, we knew it had to be a good one. So, here we are, church checkers. Checking every church, so you don't have to.
