Somebody Thinks the Church of God is Growing

None other than the National Council of Churches, in their 2009 Yearbook:

According to the 2009 Yearbook, among the 25 largest churches in the U.S., four are growing: the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (up 1.63 percent to 5,873,408; the Assemblies of God (up 0.96 percent to 2,863,265); Jehovah’s Witnesses (up 2.12 percent to 1,092,169); and the Church of God of Cleveland, Tenn. (up 2.04 percent to 1,053,642).

I don’t think this is a reason for either complacency or triumphalism, especially when you consider the size of the mission field.
