Numerical Anomaly

According to the Pew Research survey released this week, 1.5% of Americans carry “Church of Christ” as a religious label. That amounts to roughly 4.5 million people.

In the latest survery of congregations, however, the total number of adherants reported was closer to 1.7 million, with “membership” around 1.3 million, give or take.

So, roughly 65% of Americans who claim to be a part of “Churches of Christ” have no connection whatsoever with any actual congregation.
