2019 Annual Church Survey
2019 Annual Church Survey

This year we share not only average attendance numbers but also other vital stats such as the fastest-growing churches and top baptism ratios in each category.

The churches in our survey saw many amazing kingdom accomplishments in 2019. For instance, one church had 4,371 baptisms, a record over the history of our surveys. Also, two churches, a new church and an emerging megachurch, grew by more than 100 percent in 2019! 

A total of 439 churches filled out our survey this year (another record number!). We thank every church for participating; better participation makes for more accurate data. We celebrate with every church that is committed to carrying out Christ’s mission and seeing God add to their numbers those being saved. We pray that our churches may continue to learn from one another and work together in unity to fulfill the commission in a way that glorifies God.

    Why are there so many Christian churches/churches of Christ that do not report their statistics to the Christian Standard each year? I can name several churches that are not included. I am sure there are many more; Also, there are churches that have been included in the past, but are no longer reported.

    SRB, good question, I too wish they would report their statistics. I too know several churches that did not fill out this year.

    Once again I mapped the data, including churches that were in 2018 but not 2019 and a few other churches not in either survey that I know of. Check out the map on the blog post, expond legend type.
