Your church is small and you ask do I really need a website? You are listed
in the phone book and maybe even on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other
social media, so isn't that enough? Quite frankly, these social medias
are no where near enough to reach everyone. Besides the fact is that their
content is not always in harmony with Christianity, much less the Church
of the Nazarene, and you have no control over what is posted there.
"Nazarene Manual, 903.19 The use of Social Media. First and foremost, the content that we share should be respectful. As
in all interpersonal relationships, we believe that the content of our
social media should also be a reflection of the sanctified hearts for which
we strive. Clergy and laity alike must be mindful of how their activities
on social media affect the image of Christ and His church and impact its
mission within their communities. Our activities should be life giving
and affirming and should seek to uplift all persons."
In our world today, the Internet is probably the largest source of information
and is expanding daily. Many of the churches we work with have commented
that visitors found them on the web and learned the basic information they
needed to know for a visit.
First of all, probably no small church has staff with knowledge of how
to create a web page nor have time to keep it up-to-date. So, why in the
world would a small church want to spend funds for someone to create a
web page for them?
