Born – A Beautiful WordPress Theme for Churches

One of our friends, Justin Scheetz, has just notified us of a new WordPress theme he came out with called Born Theme for WordPress. It was made to be used by churches so we tried it out and found it to be extremely sleek and functional. Born is coded in HTML5 and CSS3, it has several skins, and includes custom post types. Here are some of the cooler features in detail with screenshots:

Born skins

You can change the color, font, and background images in a matter of seconds as there are several built in skins that can be activated with a click of your mouse. Not only this but it comes with several custom widgets and an admin panel that makes customization of the theme easy and precise.

    Something different: an atheist WordPress theme. Would be weird, and unnecessary.
