Fastest Growing NPUC Churches- Jul-Dec 2007

While it’s true that some communities are more receptive to the Adventist message than others, it is also valuable to identify where the church is growing rapidly and to see how Biblical and Spirit of Prophecy principles are being applied so we can learn lessons of effective cooperation with the Holy Spirit.

Click here to see the list of the ten fastest growing churches in each NPUC conference the last half of 2007 (Baptisms/POF during first half of year as a percentage of beginning membership).

The Bible includes many lists of numbers, and an entire book named “Numbers.” God keeps track of each person, and there is great rejoicing over even one sinner who repents. “In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Luke 15:10 

Here are the statistics for the last half of 2007 showing how many congregations have been involved in bringing new believers into the Adventist movement.
