The SBC Has Been in Decline Since Before I Was Born – And I’m OLD!

"The ACP statistics were released and things are not looking good for the SBC. About the only positive statistic is church planting – there are more of our churches out there. But fewer people are attending them"

It's fair to say the SBC is on the decline, but it's also fair to say that SBC churches used to vastly over-report membership numbers. An SBC church I went to stopped reporting membership to the SBC because it's none of their business as a missions organization. This is a growing trend.

Would anyone care to write a similar article about fundamentalism and its organizations, fellowships, and schools? I'm not trying to be a trouble maker; I'm really interested in the numbers. I remember national meetings of the GARBC and the FBF as well as the World Congress of Fundamentalists 20 to 30 years ago. What are they like now?
