Southern Baptists see 9th year of membership decline

http://www.tulsaworld.com/news/usworld/southern-baptists-see-th-year-of-membership-decline/article_4854ff88-8d59-542d-8565-d2529daa0cd2.html


The Southern Baptist Convention lost more than 200,000 members in 2015ó the ninth straight year of decline for the nationís largest Protestant denomination.
Membership stands at 15.3 million, down from 15.5 million in 2014, according to denomination statistics released on Tuesday. Baptisms also fell by more than 10,000 to just a little more than 295,000.
Baptisms are an important measure for the Nashville-based denomination because of its strong commitment to evangelism.
After the numbers were announced, some denominational leaders emphasized the positive news that the number of Southern Baptist churches increased last year by 294, mostly due to new churches started by SBC pastors.

Moss-

 It's even worse than that, you now have churches that are accepting  membership of practicing homosexuals.

They are running churches as a business, I think it was started Rick Warran (sic).
