Earlham School of Religion & Bethany Theological Seminary: Worship Resources

What makes a website credible?

When visiting websites on the internet for worship resources, consider these questions:

  • Is the site sponsored by a denomination? Is it someone's personal blog?
  • What does the URL (web address) suggest about the site's ownership?
  • Does the site belong to an educational institution, e.g. a seminary?
  • Is the site currently updated?
  • Is the site commercial (displays ads trying to sell you something?)
  • What sources does the site use and identify for its information?
  • What links to other sites does the site provide?
  • Does the site provide contact information for its organization?
  • Does the site attempt to gather your personal information by requiring a "free account"?
