Although I understand that good things still happen in IFB churches and that many people are brought to the Lord and salvation, I still believe that the IFB operates much like a cult.

Afterall, God can use a cult to bring people to him.

Part of the definition of a cult is “a religion or sect considered to be false, unorthodox, or extremist” – Websters Dictionary While on the surface the IFB seems to be a traditional Christian organization, within the walls of the church there is false and extreme doctrine, heavy manipulation and mind-control of its members, and manipulation of the Word of God that hurts people.

It is not the intention of this site to hurt or defame anyone.

I will do my best to not single out a particular church.

It is the sole intention of this site to bring into the light the hurtful and dangerous practices of the IFB.

Like others who have similar sites, the reason for concentrating on the Independent Fundamental Baptist Denomination is simply due to personal experience. Some are a little different and may be less strict or have different stances on scripture, but for the most part they are all very similar.

I can really only speak from my experiences so that is why this site is singling out the IFB.Because of the definition of a cult I can’t say that the IFB is a cult exactly, however, it does have some cult characteristics which I will expose.For example the IFB churches that I have experienced, believe that a person can not truly be saved if they read a version of scripture other than the King James Version.Finally, please feel free to participate in our monthly survey (poll changes will depend on the amount of interest this site generates).As you read through this site, please remember that it’s not the church you are attending that saves.When discussing this with a good friend of mine he told me not to throw the baby out with the bath water, implying that I should just filter out the bad stuff that I see/experience and keep the good stuff.
