Quote:According to the latest Annual Church Profile (ACP) report, the Southern Baptist Convention saw key metrics decline in 2020, including baptisms, membership, average weekly worship attendance, giving and total number of Southern Baptist congregations.


Quote:Reported membership of those congregations declined by 435,632, down 3 percent to 14 million members. This continues a 14-year trend of membership decline. Membership in Southern Baptist congregations peaked at 16.3 million in 2006, declining more than 2 million since.


Quote:Total church receipts and undesignated receipts both declined in 2020. Total church receipts reported through the ACP decreased 0.98% percent to 11.5 billion. Undesignated church receipts decreased 0.72% percent to $9.5 billion.


Still way too much money being wasted on horseshit but this nonsense won't disappear overnight.
