About this site

StartingwithGod.com is a site to help you grow to know God better. There is no more rewarding relationship a person can have than to know Jesus Christ in a personal way.

We want you to know…

  • We respect your privacy. We use cookies, but unlike most sites that use cookies, we won’t be chasing you around the Internet with ads if you visit StartingwithGod.com. You are welcome to visit our site once and never hear from us again.
  • We do not sell any products. Nor do we show any ads from others.
  • You can sign up for our free email series with confidence. We do not share (or sell) your email address, ever.

Bottom line…we want you to be able to explore your questions about life and God, keeping it under your control, not ours. Every article and video is described in an honest way, helping you spend time on what personally interests you.

StartingwithGod.com provides well-researched answers to questions that many people have about God and the value of a relationship with God. The site contains content from many authors, including those who hold PhDs in their fields of study.

We believe people have important, legitimate questions that deserve intelligent, factual and honest answers, without manipulation or coercion. Too many people are duped by religious charlatans of all sorts who are mostly seeking financial gain. (That is one of the reasons we sell nothing on StartingwithGod.com nor accept ads from others.)

StartingwithGod.com gives you an opportunity to email a question. We send you to our connected site, EveryStudent.com to submit your question. You will receive a thoughtful reply (not canned or copy & paste) from a real person.

StartingwithGod.com now has 20+ language versions of the site. Many hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world have grown in their relationship with God through this site.

StartingwithGod.com was started by and continues to be directed by a former atheist who is with a nonprofit Christian organization named Cru. Cru is a interdenominational organization partnering with many Christian church denominations and Christian organizations throughout the world. Its goal is to help many people know Jesus Christ in a personal way. If you are interested in seeing a specific list of the theological beliefs of Cru, please email us.

If you want to read the specific legal privacy policy of our organization, it covers many diverse parts of the organization, and is much more encompassing and more complex than what would be needed if only for StartingwithGod.com. However, you’re welcome to view it.

We hope that you will continue to grow in your relationship with God and his love for you. There is no other relationship we can experience that so completely satisfies the longings of the human heart and mind.
