At the churches

Why this list of churches on a mostly political web site? Do you need to ask? Political viewpoints are shaped by many things, and we keep greater or lesser watch on many of this at this site. One of those, which we intend to explore more over time, is the world-view which churches and their ministries help create.

We don’t mean this as criticism – couldn’t be, in any event, because the messages of the many churches are so widely different. This list of churches we will track with some regularity consists mainly of “megachurches,” a category usually considered to consist of churches with membership of 2,000 or more (though, as you will see, some of the churches on this list are somewhat smaller).

There’s an excellent resource on megachurches at the Hartford Institute for Religion Research, from which some of the information for this list was drawn.
