As if we needed one more piece of evidence to illustrate the lagging influence of the Christian faith in our culture: The most recent Gallup survey shows that for the first time in its polling history church membership has fallen below 50%. Just 20 years ago it was 73%
That’s a drop of more than 20 percentage points in just two decades.
Think about it. More than 1/2 of Americans are unchurched.
This should not be a surprise, considering the number of “Nones”….those without a religious affiliation…now represent almost one out of four Americans.
On the bright side: The mission field just got bigger. Is that how YOUR church sees it?
