Theme FAQ

Why are the themes free?

We created the themes because of the significant need for affordable church and non-profit websites. Having free templates available makes it easier for us to have something to offer to organizations that can’t afford a custom design. Also, when an organization signs up for hosting with Bluehost we are paid a commission, which makes it possibile to dedicate time to the design of these themes.

How do I get started?

Find a theme that you like and download it. If you don’t have a hosting account already you can sign up with Bluehost. We have a video that shows how to sign up for hosting and install WordPress in just a few minutes.

Are there any hidden costs?

You’ll need a domain name and web hosting. We don't sell domain names or hosting ourselves. We recommend Bluehost, but you can use the company of your choice.

Can I edit your themes?

Yes, you can. When you download the theme you will get all of the themes files. You can edit the HTML, CSS, PHP, and JavaScript if you have experience. However, our themes come with a number of features that allow for customization without any need for coding (adding your logo, customizing the navigation menu, customizing the slideshow, etc.)
