Studying best practices from other church websites can give you ideas that can improve online communication, avoid costly mistakes, and even play a part in yielding greater spiritual fruit for the Kingdom. There’s certainly a place for such pragmatism, but only if it goes hand-in-hand with listening to and obeying God.

Keep in mind it’s okay if your church website is quite different from someone else’s. Prayerfully focus on what is the best way for you to use the Internet to obey God’s will in your unique context. The more Spirit-led your design process is the better.

Maybe God wants your website to be simple yet effective. Maybe you need to try something radical that’s never been done before. Maybe you don’t need a website. The point is if you have any leading from the Holy Spirit, obey it even if the experts call you crazy.

At the same time, it helps to get ideas and inspiration from what others are doing in the Kingdom. To aid in this part of the process, here are 50 great church websites worth checking out in 2015.
