Part of the definition of a cult is “a religion or sect considered to be false, unorthodox, or extremist” – Websters Dictionary While on the surface the IFB seems to be a traditional Christian organization, within the walls of the church there is false and extreme doctrine, heavy manipulation and mind-control of its members, and manipulation of the Word of God that hurts people.It is not the intention of this site to hurt or defame anyone.
Finally, please feel free to participate in our monthly survey (poll changes will depend on the amount of interest this site generates).
As you read through this site, please remember that it’s not the church you are attending that saves.
Although I understand that good things still happen in IFB churches and that many people are brought to the Lord and salvation, I still believe that the IFB operates much like a cult.
Afterall, God can use a cult to bring people to him.
The focus of this site, therefore, is the issue of spiritual abuse and deception in the IFB churches.
This site also has a secondary emphasis on other Christian churches, but will mostly focus on the IFB Denomination.
This site is dedicated to exposing the Mind Control, Manipulation, Deception, Spiritual and Emotional Abuse, Heresy, Legalism (“Phariseeism”), and Authoritarianism behind the Independent Fundamental Baptist Denomination (IFB).
I was a member of a spiritually abusive Independent Fundamental Baptist Church for a little over 25 years.
To the right please find links to many of the false teachings of the IFB.
I encourage you to speak your defense and your experiences of the IFB as well as your support of the information on this site.
