I don’t know about you, but I personally feel this is a great time to be alive if you are a Christian. Never have we ever had the plethora of Christian resources at our fingertips as we do today. I am so blessed to be able to peruse my favorite Christian websites each week!
Here is a list of MY favorites. After reading MY list, please take time to give me some of YOUR favorite Christian websites in the comment section below!
Add these websites to your personal “tool belt” for spiritual growth!
BibleStudyTools.com is one of my favorite online Bible research resources. It is the largest free online Bible website for verse search and in-depth studies. BibleStudyTools.com includes about 39 different translations of the Bible which makes it great for comparisons.
They include a rich online library of trusted commentaries, concordances, Bible dictionaries, Biblical encyclopedias, and many books from the major Christian classics.
There are so many features on this website for digging into the Scriptures that you could spend years unpacking the treasures that are there!
Be sure to pay special attention to their blog section. They have many writers who will challenge you and encourage you in your spiritual journey each day!
From the website: “Christianity.com is brought to you by a group of writers and editors with a passion for giving people access to what is enduringly Christian. We believe that God’s truth should be available to everyone. Thus, a vision of accessible orthodoxy inspires and drives us to help people around the world know God and better understand the Christian faith. “
This is a terrific resource for researching and learning about the key portions of our faith that truly matter. Their staff of writers and editors have compiled a wealth of information here that will help you form a solid foundation in your Christian theology.
BibleGateway.com is a terrific website for finding passages of Scripture quickly from a wide variety of translations.
According to their website, “The Bible Gateway is a tool for reading and researching scripture online — all in the language or translation of your choice! It provides advanced searching capabilities, which allow readers to find and compare particular passages in scripture based on keywords, phrases, or scripture reference.”
Jesus.com is a wonderful resource for researching everything “Jesus.” This website provides a large library of articles, podcasts and videos which answer any questions one might have regarding the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. This site is a great source of information related to Christian apologetics as well.
OK, I admit it: I am a total “Sermon Junkie.” I love listening to sermons while I’m driving, while I’m working out, and any other times I can plug a set of headphones into my ears. My favorite place to go to find sermons from the greatest leaders of our generation is OnePlace.com. In addition to video and audio sermon recordings, this site also has many other great resources for learning and growing as a follower of Christ.
Crosswalk.com is a highly-relevant online Christian magazine that has articles that are applicable to just about every area of the Christian journey.
Here’s how they explain their site on their “About” page:
Our aim is to offer the freshest and most compelling biblically-based content to Christians who take seriously their relationship with Christ. Crosswalk.com is built around four primary content areas – Faith, Family, Fun and Community. Each category is further subdivided into areas of significance to many Christians, including Bible Study, Devotionals, Marriage, Parenting, Music, etc.
Within this framework, we work hard to provide timely, relevant, life-enhancing material from qualified, respected Christian sources, including major ministries such as Focus on the Family, Family Life Today, The Bible Answerman and Insight For Living.
LightSource.com is a Christian website that acts as a portal for leading Christian video content on the Internet. Some of the finest Christian broadcasting is featured on this great site. You can sit under the teaching of some of the greatest Bible teachers and communicators on the planet just spending time on LightSource.com.
The best way to catch the vibe of TheFish.com is to see what they say for themselves right on their front page of their site:
TheFish.com offers the latest pop culture news and entertainment reviews from a Christian perspective. Read reviews of movies, DVDs, television, books, video games, and music that will help you apply a Christian worldview to pop culture.

This site offers a great vehicle for exploring our modern culture from a Christian vantage point. It’s a great place to get a fresh, Christian perspective.
GodTube.com is an awesome portal for Christian videos which have been shared by believers from all around the globe. This is sort of like a YouTube site which is filled entirely with Christian content. It’s a great resource for encouragement, spiritual challenge, clean entertainment, sermon illustrations, and more. And it’s great to surf their site without having to endure the decadent types of advertisements and secular video content you might be accustomed to seeing on comparable non-Christian sites.
This website is a great way to get yourself into a regular reading (or listening) routine with the Holy Scriptures. Bible.com offers reading plans and tools for taking notes while you are studying the Scriptures. This website is great for your computer or portable device.
These websites represent just a few opportunities for growing in Christ through resources on the internet. This is MY list. Now it’s time for you to give me some of YOUR favorite Christian websites. Please take time to leave YOUR recommendations in the comment section below!
