Membership of Pentecostal Church, Jehovah's Witnesses Up, Protestant Down
According to a report by the National Council of Churches, the biggest losers are the mainstream Protestant churches -- the Presbyterian Church, Methodists and Lutherans are all showing a dip in membership.

While each of them are down just a few percentage points (the data was compiled in 2009 and reported to the council in 2010) the declines have reached into the double digits over the last decade. Some of them are responding with ad campaigns.

"I think one of the things about mainline is that because it was the dominant church for so long, it took for granted that it would be publicly valuable," said Rev. Serene Jones of the Union Theological Seminary. "To suddenly find yourself no longer the big guy on the block, meaning you suddenly have to start figuring out who you are and explain yourself." ...

Amen, "Preacher" !

Those Who Read The Whole News-Article Will Note That The Ecumenical Religious-New-World-Order "National Council Of Churches" Were The Ones Who Compiled This So-Called "POLL" !

Knowing How The "CONTROLLED" Major-Media/Press Underestimates The REAL & ACTUAL Numbers Of BIBLICAL-LITERALIST CHRISTIANS & CHURCHES Throughout THE WORLD & Here In THE U.S.A.--One Can Rightfully Conclude That The Estimate Of The Growth Of PENTECOSTAL &-OR PENTECOSTOLIC CHURCHES Is More Like 15,000,000 This Year; Or At The LEAST 1,500,000 This Year: Than The FALSELY & "WORLDLY-REPORTED" 150,000 This Year !

PENTECOSTAL CHURCHES, In GENERAL, Are The LARGEST "Protestant" Bodies, Churches &-Or Assemblies--Throughout THE WORLD & In THE U.S.A.--Who Stress FULL & COMPLETE INDEPENDENCE & AUTONOMY From ANY & ALL CENTRALIZED ORGANIZATIONAL OR DENOMINATIONAL STRUCTURES & CONTROL OVER THEIR LOCAL ASSEMBLIES !

This Is Why I Believe PENTECOSTALS & PENTECOSTOLIC CHURCHES; LIKE ALL OTHER INDEPENDENT-AUTONOMOUS CHRISTIAN-CHURCHES & ASSEMBLIES; ARE THE LAST BASTION OF FREEDOM FROM EVIL POPERY !

The churches which rely on the Holy Spirit are small in number because they are the Remnant.

Rom 11:5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. 6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.

Mainstream churches decline because they rely on systems instead of on the Holy Spirit.

Some people stay in the mainline churches and others go to the JWs and Pentecostals for really the same reason.

2 Timothy 4
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires;
4 and will turn away their ears from the truth, and will turn aside to myths.---NASB

and then there are the ones who go to Bible believing churches because they Proclaim the Word.

A Look at the Pentecostal/Charismatic Movement--Is It Biblical? and various commentaries, usually short, on Jehovah Witness eection on the John Ankerberg site.
