How to Get a Church Website That Runs Itself

Springtime can easily be gobbled up by events: Easter, Mother’s Day, graduation,  and more.

We know that you’re busy preparing for your next sermon series, planning events for families, and pastoring your church members. Because of that, your church’s website might not be on the top of your mind.

Faithlife Sites frees you to focus on what matters most by giving you a church website that runs itself.  

It takes the work you and your staff already do every week—like keeping a calendar, creating announcements, or uploading a sermon—and uses it to automatically populate your church website.

Get your site up and running in three steps, and leave the updating to us.

Step 1: Sign In

Navigate to Faithlife Sites and click Sign in. Use your Faithlife credentials to authorize access to Faithlife Sites. If you don’t yet have a free Faithlife account, you can quickly create one.

Step 2: Add Your Church

Click Get Started. If you already have a church group on, search for it above. If you don’t have a church group, enter your Church Name and Church Location. Click Done and Faithlife will create your church group for you.  

Faithlife church groups are free online communities on Your group will work together with your site to make content creation quick and easy.

Step 3: Choose a Theme

Next, choose from one of the professionally designed website themes. You can change this design later and your site will instantly update.

Your new Faithlife Site is now ready to edit and publish. When you’re ready to make it visible to the public, click Go live in the top right-hand corner.

That’s it! In three steps, you’ve created your church website.
