Before he founded the aXiom Network, Don Walley researched thousands of church websites and found one crucial element missing from them all: the gospel of Jesus Christ.
After what he called many years of "prayer and frustration," Walley, who had previously worked with ministries like the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Campus Crusade for Christ and Navigators, began to form the idea of the aXiom Network, a program designed to help churches incorporate the gospel into their website and to maximize its impact in reaching the lost.
"When I did the research on this and saw the absence of the gospel, I thought, This is crazy," Walley says. "How's that even possible? The hundreds of pastors I've talked to, these are all good, solid, Bible-believing men, preachers of the Word.
"But it surprised me that, although they have this powerful tool that's available to the entire world, the most important message they can offer is missing from their website. This was quite an epiphany for me."
The seven reasons from aXiom for a church to include the gospel on its website are: The Great Commission, a tool for the Holy Spirit, use by members, you owe it to yourself and others, it can transform the web and it's what leaders do.
