These Ministries are not listed in any particular order of importance, approval or disapproval. Although some of these Ministries/ Ministers claim a Biblical Doctrine on paper, they do not adhere to it in their teachings and life. Keep in mind that our rating system is based on a 1-10 numerical scale.  We feel that any Ministry that falls below a 7 overall rating should be avoided.  There is a lot more that goes into the ratings than the headings listed below would indicate and there is nothing scientific about the ratings, they are only our perspectives on the various Ministries. Keep in mind that there are literally 1000s of ministries out there and this is just a mere small percentage of them.  We are convinced that there are many more good Bible teaching Ministries around the world and we are constantly on the lookout for them.  P lease let us know if you are concerned about a Ministry not listed here and we will do our very best to check them out for you.
