Free Websites for Churches and Religious Organizations
At FreeChurchWebsites.org, our mission is to help spread the Word of God by building and hosting websites for Christian churches, Jewish Synagogues and Temples, priests, pastors and other religious organizations --- absolutely free-of-charge.
If you are the priest, pastor, reverend, rabbi or minister of a church or synagogue; or if you represent a church, synagogue or religious organization that is in need of a website, you've come to the right place! We'll not only build your website free-of-charge, we'll even host it and provide training and technical support at no cost to you whatsoever.

Why do we do this?
We at FreeChurchWebsites.org believe that those who dedicate their lives to serving the Lord God, teaching others about God, Jesus Christ and/or religious history, proselytizing and/or religious service ministries should not have to pay for a website. Being in that the internet literally connects billions of people across the world, it is imperative in this day and age that every church and religious organization that is serious about growing its congregation and teaching people about the ways of God and Jesus Christ to have a presence on the world wide web.
Never before in the earth's history has a single person been able to reach out to so many others regardless of that individual's location or proximity to population centers. Anyone, anywhere can start a website that reaches millions upon millions of people. Unfortunately, churches have been painfully slow to adapt, with many if not most burying the development of a web presence far enough down the list of priorities that realistically will never happen unless someone in the church's local congregation with the knowledge, skill and time to build the church a site volunteers to do so at no cost to the church.Unfortunately, for many churches, this day never arrives.
Well, financial considerations and the lack of a web savvy congregant are no longer valid excuses for a church or religious organization to put off getting online for even one more day. Thanks to FreeChurchWebsites.org, any and all Christian and Jewish houses of worship and related organizations qualify for a free, custom-built website from FreeChurchWebsites.org. There is no catch, and there are no caveats.
How Can We Afford To Do This?
The man who founded FreeChurchWebsites.org is a professional web developer who also owns a domain registrar and web hosting company. Over the past several years, he created an innovative system that streamlines the process of developing high-quality, professionally-built, aesthetically appealing custom websites --- and do so for pennies on the dollar compared with the cost of hiring a web designer and paying for web hosting on a site-by-site, company-by-company basis.
FreeChurchWebsites.org takes advantage of this cutting-edge system to be able to offer custom-built, fully-hosted websites at a mere fraction of the cost of more traditional methods of web design and development. The site is privately funded through both its founder and a team of anonymous donors. A small percentage of advertising revenue generated from participating sites goes toward the cost of overhead. This percentage is negligible for any given church, and is drawn entirely from funds that would otherwise never have reached the church in the first place (if the church had no website).
What's in it for the Church Itself?
This truly ingenious system (some would argue the system itself is divinely inspired) not only covers its own operating costs without costing churches a dime, the churches whose websites are built by FreeChurchWebsites.org actually MAKE MONEY through their free websites!
So, not only will your new website not cost you anything to build or host, it will actually help raise money for the church while providing a service to the congregation. Some common uses of free church websites include the posting of daily and weekly newsletters, transcribed sermons, videos of sermons, photos of the church and its members, maps to each respective church, news related to the church or congregation, lists of businesses of church members and much, much more!
Church websites built by FreeChurchWebsites.org are e-commerce compatible, allowing each participating church or organization to sell gifts, DVDs, t-shirts, coffee mugs, CafePress items or anything else a given church may wish to include in its online store. These websites are compatible with almost all common web advertising and affiliate programs, including Google AdSense and Amazon Associates. The list of ways churches can raise money through their new sites is seemingly endless!
Is There a Catch?
No. Your website will never cost you a penny as long as you represent a church or a Christian or Jewish religious organization. All we ask for in return from the churches for whom we build and host free websites is that we may place a small link at the very bottom of the page in order to help spread the word about FreeChurchWebsites.org. FreeChurchWebsites.org does keep a nominal percentage of advertising revenues generated from the sites. This percentage may vary slightly, but is generally in the neighborhood of 5%-8% of the gross revenues generated from PPC (pay-per-click) advertising programs and affiliate programs such as Amazon Associates. We do not keep a percentage of donations made to the church through the website, and do not keep any revenue from any other website monetization methods other than those described here.
What if I Don't Want Ads on My Site?
You are free to choose not to place advertisements on your site. The site belongs to the church for whom it was built, and that church is free to do with the site anything within the parameters of the law. FreeChurchWebsites.org will respect your decision should you choose to not monetize your website. We strongly encourage all participating churches to opt-in to the advertising programs available, however doing so is not mandatory. Opting-in is the only way to ensure your church's website acts as a vehicle to help raise money for the church, and we reserve the right to take a percentage not to exceed 10% of all gross advertising revenues from those sites who do decide to participate. Since sites that do not participate will not raise any money for their own church through the website, we obviously cannot take a percentage of nothing.
