INTRODUCTION 

This book presents compilations of information on all faiths in the 
United States. It is the 24th issue of the YEARBOOK OF AMERICAN CHURCHES. 
It is a work of reference published annually. As an annual publication it 
records the yearly changes of officers of numerous religious organizations, 
and provides a continuous record of the statistics that are also published 
yearly by the numerous religious bodies. All the information contained 
herein comes from the religious organizations themselves. 

After long discussion it has been decided to use a method of dating 
followed by a number of other publishers of reference works. Thus this 
"Edition for 1956" contains data gathered in 1955 and presents the latest 
information secured at as recent a date as practicable for the publication 
schedule. It is well known that information must be gathered some 
months prior to the printing of a book. 

The information on organized religion, and on related organizations in 
which it is believed that many religious agencies have an interest, con- 
sists chiefly of directories and of statistical and historical data. 

Among the eleven directories, one is on certain religious bodies in 
Canada. The largest directory is the one devoted to the religious bodies, 
or communions, in the United States. An effort is made to record all 
known denominations, and to report data for those willing to furnish 
documentary information. A few have declined to furnish information. 
The names and addresses of these are given, with a note indicating in- 
formation has been declined. The aim of the Editor is to be inclusive, 
to expand the coverage, and not to pass judgment on the nature of the 
program carried on. 

The "latest information" on statistics is given under categories of 
church membership, religious education, clergy, and finance. These figures 
are compiled for Continental United States, i.e., the 48 states and the 
District of Columbia, and thus are not always the total official figures 
published by a given religious body, because some denominations in 
the U.S. include members in Canada, Alaska, Hawaii, or even in other 
nations. The purpose in presenting a compilation for Continental U.S. 
is to provide data comparable with similar tabulations made for many 
years. 

Studies of trends, comparing the latest statistics with those of prior 
years are made for the purpose of aiding those who wish to make com- 
parisons. 

State and local councils are listed in three sections: those with paid 
leadership, those with voluntary leadership, and the state organizations 
of church women. It is understood that the local councils of church men 
are reported under the state and local councils of churches. 

The user of this volume deserves a frank word concerning its limita- 
tions. A few of the directories do not contain every institution or organ- 
ization in the United States. They do, however, contain large numbers 
of organizations believed to be needed in a national listing. There has 
not been available the staff time required to compile, or the money to 
print, the names of, say, every institution training clergymen, or every 
known religious periodical. At present it is not practical to present such 
lists because of costs of compilation and printing. Our listings have stood 
the pragmatic tests of many users.

All the information in this book has been supplied generously by 
others. It is possible to scrutinize and to check with previous reports 
the data supplied. Ordinarily, however, it has not been possible to verify 
these data. If in spite of great care errors have occurred, the Editor will 
thank the users of the book for corrections which will be made in the 
next edition. 

The compilation and editing of the volume were committed to the 
Bureau of Research and Survey of the National Council. Executives and 
staff members of many units of the Council have shown an interest in 
the" book and have gladly helped in the process of preparation.

Highlights 

Among the information appearing in this book: 

A total membership of 97,482,611 persons in 254 religious bodies in 
Continental United States is reported by official church statisticians in a 
compilation of "the latest information." Most of the bodies report figures 
for the calendar year 1954, or a fiscal year ending in 1954. 

This is a gain of 2.8 per cent over the figures reported a year earlier. 
The population gain was 1.7 per cent. The number of Protestant members 
reported increased 2.3 per cent over the previous annual total; the num- 
ber of Roman Catholics increased 2.9 per cent. 

The total church membership is at a new high, as is the proportion of 
church members in the population 60.3 per cent. 

The six major groups report members as follows: 

Buddhist 63,000 

Old Catholic and Polish National Catholic 367,918 

Eastern Orthodox 2,024,219 

Jewish 5,500,000 

Roman Catholic 32,403,332 

Protestant 57,124,142 

The number of local churches reported by all faiths is 300,056, a gain 
of 1.9 per cent. 

The total number of pastors reported having charges in local churches 
is 213,167. Only 219 bodies made a report on this item. The number of 
Protestant pastors reported with charges now stands at 193,522. All re- 
porting bodies give a total of 341,422 ordained persons, many of these 
being retired or in other vocations. 

There is a total enrollment of 37,623,530 persons in 262,826 Sunday or 
Sabbath schools. These have 2,970,614 teachers and officers. The gain in 
enrollment was 6.3 per cent for the year, Protestant churches reported 
93 per cent of the total enrollment, or 34,990,572 persons. 

There are 81 religious bodies with 50,000 or more members each, and 
these reported 98.4 per cent of all members of religious bodies.

NOTES: 
Harvest Festivals are observed on appropriate Sundays from August through November. 

This Calendar is partly from an insert for "The Christian Year," a Suggestive Guide 
for the Worship of the Church in the Pamphlet Library on Worship published by 
the National Council of Churches of Christ in the U.S.A., 297 Fourth Ave., New York 
JO, N. Y. (Revised i 1954.) 



YEARBOOK OF AMERICAN CHURCHES 

A TABLE OF DATES AHEAD 

The following table indicates when Easter and other important festival days 
occur during the next few years. It also indicates the number of Sundays during 
Epiphany and after Pentecost for each year of the period. Easter may come as 
early as March 22nd or as late as April 25th, thus bringing a wide variation in the 
number of Sundays included in certain of the Christian seasons.

Advent Christian Church 

A branch of the original Adventist 
group, composed of ministers and 
churches which withdrew from the 
American Millennial Association be- 
tween 1854 and 1860, as a result of con- 
troversy over the question of immor- 
tality. As a corollary to their belief in 
conditional immortality, the group also 
held to the utter extinction of the 
wicked after the judgment. The Gen-

Seventh-day Adventists 

This Protestant body developed out 
of an interdenominational movement 
that appeared in different countries of 
Christendom in the early decades of 
the nineteenth century, stressing the 
imminence of the Second Advent of 
Christ. However, Seventh-day Adven- 
tists were not formally organized until 
1863. Taking the Bible as their sole 
rule of faith and practice, they are 
fundamentally evangelical, holding to 
the full inspiration of the Scriptures 
and the deity of Christ. Their two 
cardinal points of faith are: (1) belief 
in the personal, imminent, pre-millen- 
nial return of Christ, and (2) observ- 
ance of the seventh day as the Sab- 
bath.

The Russian Orthodox Church 
Outside Russia 

(Formerly The Russian Orthodox 
Church Abroad) 

Organized in 1920 to unite in one 
body of dioceses the missions and 
parishes of the Russian Orthodox 
Church outside of Russia. The govern- 
ing body was set up in Constantinople 
sponsored by the Ecumenical Patri- 
archate. In 1921 headquarters were 
transferred to Sremsky Karlovtsy, 
Yugoslavia. From the end of World 
War II until 1950 the Synod was in 
Munich, Germany. In November, 1950, 
it came to the United States. The Rus- 
sian Orthodox Church Outside Rus- 
sia lays emphasis on being true to the 
old traditions of the Russian Church, 
but it does not compromise with offi- 
cial church leaders in Moscow, "since 
that would amount to being under the 
influence and direction of a godless 
State." 

In addition to those in the United 
States, the Synod has dioceses and 
communities in Canada, Argentina, 
Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay, Peru 
and Venezuela. There are diocesan 
bishops in London, Paris, Munich, 
Salzburg and in Australia and New 
Zealand; parishes in North Africa, 
Turkey and Iran, and there is a Mis- 
sion in Palestine.

tween the Evangelical Church and the

Christ. Both these former communions 
had their beginning in Pennsylvania 
in the evangelistic movement of the 
early 19th century. Jacob Albright was 
the founder of the Evangelical Church,

the founder of the United Brethren 
Church in 1800. In doctrine this Church 
is Arminian and in government Meth- 
odistic.

Religious Society of Friends 
(Conservative) 

In 1845 and 1854, under the leadership 
of John Wilbur, separations from the 
main body of Friends occurred. The

of the Friends. There are Five Yearly 
Meetings in this group, four in the 
U. S., each being independent of the 
others.

Jehovah's witnesses 

"Jehovah's witnesses adhere to the 
oldest religion on earth, the worship 
of Almighty God revealed in his Bible 
as Jehovah. From man's beginning 
there have been at all times some of 
Jehovah's witnesses on earth, adher- 
ing to the Bible principle of separate- 
ness from all parts of the world organi- 
zation of men. In modern times Je- 
hovah's witnesses are primitive Chris- 
tians, recognizing and teaching the 
Bible as God's word of truth, believ- 
ing it and following its commandments, 
which accounts for their consistent 
neutrality toward any nationalistic in- 
terests. They use the Watch Tower 
Bible and Tract Society, Watchtower 
Bible and Tract Society, Inc., Inter- 
national Bible Students Association, 
and other corporations in their earth- 
wide preaching activity, and preach to 
all regardless of denomination. To be 
one of Jehovah's witnesses one must 
make an unconditional individual 
dedication to do the will of Almighty 
God and then must proceed faithfully 
to obey the commandments of God 
and Christ as expressed in the Bible, 



56 



which course of action is the worship 
of God and is true religion. 

"Therefore, all of Jehovah's witnesses 
are ministers of the gospel and have 
no human leader. Their Yearbook 
shows them active during 1954 in 159 
countries of the earth, where there 
are approximately 580,000 such minis- 
ters preaching, teaching the people of 
all nations that God's word is true and 
that their only hope is in the Kingdom 
of Jehovah under Christ Jesus which 
has been established to rule over earth 
and which will replace all govern- 
ments of man. There are now 3,350 
congregations in continental United 
States, and worldwide 14,531 congre- 
gations." (From a statement by the 
President to the Editor of the Year- 
book.)

Colored Methodist Episcopal Church 

In 1870 the General Conference of 
the M.E. Church, South, approved the 
request of its colored membership for 
the formation of their conferences into 
a separate ecclesiastical body. 



At its General Conference in Memphis, 
May, 1954, it was overwhelmingly voted 
to change the name of the Colored 
Methodist Episcopal Church to:

Judiciary Court. The name will not be 
officially changed until after the report 
from the Judiciary Court.

METHODIST BODIES 

The Methodist Church 

The present organization of The 
Methodist Church began in May, 1939, 
with the unification of three branches 
of Methodism the Methodist Episcopal 
Church, the Methodist Episcopal 
Church, South, and the Methodist Prot- 
estant Church. All three of the uniting 
churches were in unbroken historical 
connection with Methodism in Amer- 
ica. The 1948 General Conference 
adopted a resolution stating that the 
Christmas Conference of 1784 is re- 
garded as the date on which the or- 
ganized Methodist Church was founded 
as an ecclesiastical organization. At 
this Conference, held in Lovely Lane 
Chapel, Baltimore, Francis Asbury and 
Thomas Coke were elected superin- 
tendents and a program of expansion 
was outlined. The Methodist move- 
ment began in England with John and 
Charles Wesley, leaders of an evangeli- 
cal revival, and was carried to Ameri- 
ca in 1760 by Methodist emigrants 
from Ireland. 

Churches: 39,801. Inclusive Membership:

Muslims 

There are local centers of worship 
among Muslims in the U.S.A. A 
mosque, said to be in accord with the 
full Muslim traditions, was erected 
in 1953 in Washington, D. C. There are 
perhaps 15 or 20 places of worship in 
cities in the nation. There is appar- 
ently no general organization, and 
there are only the most informal esti- 
mates of the number of persons affili- 
ated with the local centers. It may be 
that there are from ten to twenty 
thousand persons who participate in 
these places of worship. 

The information in this paragraph 
has been gathered by the Editor of this 
Yearbook, by means of correspondence 
and interviews with Muslims in the 
U.S.A.

Cumberland Presbyterian Church 

An outgrowth of the Great Revival 
of 1800, the Cumberland Presbytery 
was organized on February 4, 1810, in 
Dickson County, Tenn., by three Pres- 
byterian ministers, the Revs. Finis 
Ewing, Samuel King, and Samuel 
McAdpw. Contributing factors to the 
organization were a rejection by the 
founders of the doctrine of fatality of 
the Westminster Confession of Faith, 
and an insistence that the rigid stand- 
ards of the Presbyterian Church for the 
education of the clergy be relaxed in 
the light of extraordinary circum- 
stances existing on the American fron- 
tier. The presbytery for a time sought 
admission into the Presbyterian 
Church, but, failing in this effort, de- 
veloped eventually into a denomina- 
tion. A union with the Presbyterian 
Church, U.S.A., in 1906 was only par- 
tially successful. A considerable seg- 
ment, to whom the terms of union were 



88 



unsatisfactory, perpetuated the Cum- 
berland Presbyterian Church as a sep- 
arate denomination.

1. THE LATEST INFORMATION 

CHURCH MEMBERSHIP 

The reports on church membership received from official statisticians 
of religious bodies reveal a total membership of 97,482,611 persons in 254 
bodies* in 1954, compared with a total of 94,842,845 persons in 1953, pub- 
lished in the previous YEARBOOK. These figures are for Continental 
United States, i.e., the 48 states and the District of Columbia. 

The total number of church members is equal to over 60.3 per cent 
of the population in Continental United States. This is the highest pro- 
portion of the population ever reported to be on the church rolls. 

The gain of 2,639,766 persons is equal to 2.8 per cent for the year. The 
number of Protestants reported increased 2.3 per cent over the previous 
annual total. The number of Roman Catholics increased 2.9 per cent. 

Between 1953 and 1954 the estimated population of Continental United 
States increased 1.7 per cent. 

There were 300,056 local churches reported, compared with 294,359 a 
year earlier. The gain is equal to 1.9 per cent. 

Of 268 religious bodies listed, there are 254 reporting church mem- 
bership.

1 The figures for Jewish Congregations represent combined data for the three branches 
of Judaism: Orthodox, Conservative, Reform. 

There are also Muslims in the United States, but no statistical reports 
are available. Informal estimates are cited in the directory of religious 
bodies in this Yearbook. 

The Protestant church membership was equal to 58.6 per cent of all 
church membership in 1954 about the same as a year earlier. It seems 
that the major religious groups have developed in about the same rela- 
tion to each other during the last 50 years. The data for 1926-54 are more 
fully discussed T?elo\v.

STATISTICAL AND HISTORICAL SECTION 

A recital of these trends and data gives rise to the usual questions 
about definitions of membership. The Roman Catholics count all bap- 
tized persons, including infants. The Jews regard as members all Jews in 
communities having congregations. The Eastern Orthodox Churches in- 
clude all persons in their nationality or cultural groups. Most Protestant 
bodies count only the persons who have attained full membership, and 
previous estimates have indicated that all but a small minority of these 
are over 13 years of age. However, many Lutheran bodies and the Prot- 
estant Episcopal Church now report all baptized persons, and not only 
those confirmed. 

The Church of Christ, Scientist, did not furnish membership figures 
because of a regulation of that body that forbids "the numbering of 
people and the reporting of such statistics for publication." In the Census 
of Religious Bodies, 1936, published by the U. S. Bureau of the Census, 
there were reported 268,915 members of the Church of Christ, Scientist.

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION 

There were 262,826 Sunday or Sabbath schools in all religious bodies, 
with 2,970,614 teachers and officers, and a total enrollment of 37,623,530 
persons. 

A year earlier there was reported a total enrollment of 35,389,466. 
Thus the increase was 2,234,064 persons, or 6.3 per cent. 

The Protestant churches, which have generally emphasized the Sunday 
school, reported 93 per cent of the total enrollment, and 93.6 per cent a 
year earlier. The total Protestant enrollment in this compilation is 
34,990,572 persons, 

Helen F, Spaulding of the staff of the Bureau of Research and Survey 
of the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the U.S.A. has com- 
mented as follows on trends in Sunday school enrollment: 

"Sunday school enrollment showed a healthy and continuous growth 
during the first third of the century. Then during the thirties something 
happened; momentum slowed down, and some of the religious bodies 
actually registered a loss. It was not until 1947 that there were definite 
signs of recovery."
