How important is a church website?
Our modern world needs Jesus more than ever before! People have a hunger for something more but even if they do visit ‘a church’ they likely aren’t walking into full truth. That’s why it is vital that we spread the true Apostolic message to this confused generation. To do that your church needs to have a website that reaches people where they are, and represents the truth well.
Like it or not, people judge you by your website…
Here are some important statistics that Pro Church Tools wrote about on their blog:
Nearly half (46%) of people say a website’s design is their number one criterion for determining the credibility of an organization. (Source)
94% of people cited poor web design as the reason they mistrusted or rejected a website (Source)
In 2012, 46% of church attenders said that a church’s website was important in picking a church to visit (Source)
33% of people said that the internet was the first place where they learned about their church (Source).
Wow! These statistics mean that your church website is one of your most important tools for reaching your community!
Time for an honest look in the mirror…
Here are some questions you need to carefully consider:
- Does your church website attract or turn away potential visitors?
- Is your website engaging to first-time visitors or perceived as cluttered and clunky?
- Does your church site load slowly or have ‘glitches’ regularly?
- Is your site mobile friendly for any size device?
- Can people find your website by searching online?
The answers to these questions largely determine your effectiveness for reaching people online. If it isn’t what it needs to be today, it’s time to do something about it.
There is hope!
If you are like most people we talk to with an underperforming church website, you feel helpless, overwhelmed, and frustrated. We get that. As Apostolics ourselves, we know the burden you have for reaching the lost. But we also know how challenging it can be to bring everything together to build and maintain a solid web presence online. You don’t have to worry any longer. We have worked with other churches like yours to overcome these hurdles and be more effective for the kingdom online!
