CHURCH GROWTH FACTOIDS

CHURCH GROWTH FACTOIDS:

Take a look at these two Factoids

 

Factoid #1: “Wordlwide, Christian baptisms are running at 12,740 every day on average, but churches lose 53,151 who die and 19,178 who defect every day. Each day, some 234,247 unevangelized persons become evangelized. But unevangelized persons are increasing every day though birth by 257,808 persons. So, overall we are losing the battle to evangelize at a rate of 23,561 every day.” Source: (AD2000 Global Monitor (1992 stats) )


Factoid #2: “In fact, there are more missionaries at work today than ever before in history,' he pointed out. 'What has changed,' Anderson says, 'is at least 100,000 of these missionaries are being sent out by Protestant churches in non-western countries.” Source: (LOST IN AMERICA, Tom Clegg & Warren Bird, p. 28)
