Poll: Church of Christ tops in weekly worship attendance
Americans who give their religious affiliation as “Church of Christ” are more likely than any other group to attend weekly worship services, a new Gallup Poll reports.
Sixty-eight percent of Church of Christ members interviewed by Gallup said they attend worship services at least once a week or almost every week, according to a poll released April 14.
The analysis is based on an aggregate of more than 11,000 Gallup Poll interviews between 2002 and 2005, including 123 identified with the Church of Christ. Pollsters did not ask respondents to specify whether the churches were a cappella or instrumental.
Denominations on the list included:
- Mormons – 67 percent
- Pentecostal – 65 percent
- Southern Baptist – 60 percent
- Catholic – 45 percent
- Methodist – 44 percent
- Presbyterian – 44 percent
- Lutheran – 43 percent
- Episcopal – 32 percent
