Some churches that have been listed are labeled with the term inclusive psalmody.  This is to denote that the worship practice in such churches differs from the strict definition of exclusive psalmody that is promoted on this website.

Exclusive psalmody is the practice of singing only the 150 Psalms of the Bible in stated times of worship.  It does not speak to times in one’s life outside of worship.  On the maps listings, EP churches are labeled with a teardrop shape.

By Inclusive psalmody, I mean that the practice is to sing the 150 Psalms of the Bible plus other selections such as (but not necessarily limited to) the Ten Commandments, Song of Mary, Song of Zacharias, Song of Simeon, Lord’s Prayer,  and the Apostles’ Creed.  Churches with this practice are labeled with a circle.

This website does not promote the singing in worship of anything outside of the 150 Psalms of the Bible.  Inclusive psalmody congregations are listed for the interest and information of the public.
