About Our Rating

Based on each investigation and the information we collect on each church, we will either recommend or not recommend a church. Everyone has a different perspective and opinion based on their doctrinal views, personality, and other factors. Our recommendations are based on our Ultra-Libertarian Christian perspective and our desire to protect the Body of Christ from the abuse, exploitation, coercive control, and other cult-like behaviors practiced by wolves in sheep’s clothing.
