The LINKS to these ACRONYMS by NO WAY SHOW AN ENDORSEMENT,  as a matter of fact, I probably DISAGREE WITH A MAJORITY OF THEM!  These links are provided for you who ARE NOT FAMILIAR with the ORGANIZATION(S), so you can BETTER ASCERTAIN the DOCTRINAL POSITION of a church.

(Besides, I need this list to remind me what the acronyms are!)

If you know of any that are not listed here, please feel free to bring it to my attention.
