1. For a church to be included on the list, the pastor MUST fill out our questionnaire. and we must agree with his answers. We have no interest in maintaining a list of all independent Baptist churches, since we don't recommend most independent Baptist churches. The only churches we desire to list on this directory are churches that are likeminded with us in doctrine and practice.
2. The old asterisk system has been done away with. (Earlier we used a single asterisk to indicate that a church had filled out the questionnaire, but in 2011 we removed all churches that had not filled out the questionnaire. We also used a double asterisk to indicate churches that Bro. Cloud has personally visited and personally recommends. He has found that it is not possible to know enough about churches to give a personal recommendation from brief visits, plus churches are changing direction so quickly that it is not possible for a stranger to keep up with what is happening.
3. This is not a list of churches that we recommend. In most cases, we have never visited these churches and know nothing about them personally beyond what is submitted to us in the questionnaire. This list is simply an attempt to help God's people find a church. It is only a suggested starting point in that endeavor.
4. We invite feedback. If you have personal knowledge of a church and you know that it is not sound in some important way, please take the time to inform us so that we can make a decision as to whether to keep the church on the list or not.
5. If your church is from the following countries, in order to have your church listed, I must have personal knowledge of your ministry. Filling out the questionnaire is not sufficient: India, Myanmar, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Africa.
