Post Looking for accurate data FLRon
I’m trying find out how many active churches there are in the COG. I’m also interested in knowing approximately how many members there are in the COG.

I’m getting conflicting results from my own research so I’m appealing to those in the know. If you can, please cite your data source.

Thank you!

Hmmm... must be a very closely guarded secret entrusted to only those in possession of the decoder!

What state? I think he is asking how many total churches are in the Church of God.

How many dead members are on the roles and how many have duplicate membership in multiple churches.

Did we learn this from the demoncrats?

I am pretty sure my wife and I are members of at least two churches.
LOL (Gotta love the auto correct function of my carrier, I misspelled churches and got 'curses'.)
OUCH

Are you thinking nationally or internationally? I haven't looked in years, but internationally, Indonesia used to have the largest membership of any nation. That could still be the case. GBI was estimated to have about 2 million members or aherents.

That also illustrates how a denomination can greatly increase its membership. Much of GBI seems kind of 'Charismatic' to me, and the fellowship of churches Pak Niko led in the Jakarta area had banners that said 'Karismatik' on them. GPDI, the Pentecostal Church In Indonesia is another denomination. I believe GBI split off a denomination (GBIS) that split off of GBDI but I'm not sure how many splits there were in between. GPDI affiliated with Foursquare several years back, so the size the Foursquare denomination must have grown quite a bit because there are a lot of GPDIs (maybe fewer than GBI, but still a lot.)

GPDI seems more conservative with men wearing long white-sleeved shirts to church and more emphasis on dress and not going to the movies in some of the congregations. GBI is more 'modern'-- not exactly 'liberal' but less into older Holiness codes. I think of Foursquare as a bit 'freer' or more 'modern' denomination in the US than the COG, but the COG is affiliated with the more Charismatic GBI and Foursquare with the more Pentecostal GPDI. Btw, a lot of Indonesian Charismatics will say Pentecostals like to cry a lot in church, probably thinking of GPDI. I've had this conversation in a Charismatic church that seems a lot like a Pentecostal church.

Is it important to know how big the denomination is? Remember what happened to David when he started counting membership. Smile I read the Little Flock movement was hesitant about counting members
