Church directories are generally organized by both location and denomination, letting users locate churches by either or both search terms simultaneously. Church directories within a particular denomination are typically divided by location alone.
For example, on Believe.com, users may find a church by its name, denomination and location within 10 to 100 miles of the closest result. At the Net Ministries website, users may search the overall church directory. The Search the church directory link opens a page that allows for searching by church name, city, state, province, country, postal code or denomination. Clicking on a single search term, such as denomination, returns results for all churches within a particular denomination throughout the lower 48 states, Alaska and around the world.
