The numbers below are staggering:

Only 22 of the 43,000 churches in the Southern Baptist Convention could say they-

* baptized at least 26 people per year for 10 consecutive years
* experienced overall worship attendance growth during the same 10 years
* and had a membership to baptism ratio of no more than 20 to 1.

  1. Greetings,

    I’m glad to have found your blog and look forward to interacting with your thoughts as time goes on.

    About the stats above, in particular the baptism ratio of 20 to 1. I had always heard that it took on average about 100 people to bring one person to Christ in a year. Had you heard that? Do you know when or how that ratio changed?


  2. I’ve heard that stat also, not for sure where…I will look it up. Thanks for stopping by my blog man.
