A PREFATORY WORD 

Benefiting by suggestions received, this second issue of 
the Year Book has been improved for purposes of reference 
by an index, by changes in type, by a better classification, and 
by the addition of new tables of statistics of Sunday-schools, 
of the distribution of communicants of many denominations 
by states, and of the chief Protestant bodies of the world. 
Other denominations would have been included in the distri- 
bution by states, but they were unable to make the compila- 
tion. It is hoped that they may provide for this hereafter. 

The general tables of statistics include, as heretofore, those 
organizations recognized as religious bodies by the United 
States Census Bureau. No attempt has been made to classify 
the denominations as evangelical, orthodox, non-evangelical, 
etc. With the statistical information given for all, any one 
can make for himself such lists as his judgment may deter- 
mine. Those who want to ascertain the strength of the 
evangelical churches may begin with the constituent bodies 
of the Federal Council, for which a separate table is given at 
the end of the Directory of the Constituent Bodies, and add 
such other denominations thereto as, in his opinion, belong 
properly to the evangelical group. 

Hundreds of denominational statisticians and other corre- 
spondents have freely furnished information, and the editor 
hereby makes grateful acknowledgment of their favors. 

H. K. Carroll, Editor. 



FEDERAL COUNCIL YEAR BOOK 



HISTORY AND ORGANIZATION OF THE 
FEDERAL COUNCIL 

Historical Sketch 

The Federal Council held its first meeting at Philadelphia 
in 1908 and was largely the culmination of previous voluntary 
federative movements, the chief of which had been the Evan- 
gelical Alliance and the National Federation of Churches 
and Christian Workers. The important preliminary work 
leading up to the organization was accomplished by the Inter- 
church Conference on Federation held in Carnegie Hall, 
New York City, in 1905, a body composed of official dele- 
gates from thirty denominations convened through the initia- 
tive of the National Federation of Churches and Christian 
Workers. This conference adopted the Constitution of the 
Federal Council and transmitted it to the various denomina- 
tions with the understanding that approval by two thirds of 
them would give it full effect. This approval was secured 
early in 1908. 

The Federal Council — an Organized Body 

The difference between the Federal Council and the pre- 
vious movements is that it is not an individual or voluntary 
agency, or simply an interdenominational fellowship, but is 
an officially and ecclesiastically constituted body. 

It is differentiated from other general movements for the 
manifestation of Christian unity in the fact that it is the 
cooperation of the various denominations for service rather 
than an attempt to unite them upon definitions of theology 
and polity. 

It does not interfere with the autonomy of these bodies 
and its Constitution specifically states that "The Federal 



2 Federal Council Year Book 

Council shall have no authority over the constituent bodies 
adhering to it; but its province shall be limited to the ex- 
pression of its counsel and the recommending of a course of 
action in matters of common interest to the churches, local 
councils, and individual Christians. It has no authority to 
draw up a common creed or form of government or of 
worship, or in any way to limit the full autonomy of the 
Christian bodies adhering to it." 

The basis and limitations of its constituency are indicated 
by the preamble to the Constitution, which reads as follows: 
"In the providence of God, the time has come when it seems 
fitting more fully to manifest the essential oneness of the 
Christian churches of America, in Jesus Christ as their 
Divine Lord and Savior, and to promote the spirit of fellow- 
ship, service, and cooperation among them." 

Organization 

The Federal Council meets quadrennially and consists of 
about four hundred qualified members officially elected by 
the various denominational assemblies or other constituted 
authorities. 

Its Executive Committee consists of about ninety of these 
delegates and acts for the Council during the quadrennium 
between its sessions, holding regular annual meetings. 

The Executive Committee has an Administrative Com- 
mittee, holding regular monthly meetings which acts for the 
Executive Committee between its sessions. 

The national office and its executives, under the Adminis- 
trative Committee, carry on the continuous work of the 
Council, 

The Nature of Its Work 

The united work undertaken by the Council is indicated 
by the titles of its commissions and committees. Among 
these are the Commissions on Evangelism, Social Service, 
Christian Education, Temperance, International Justice and 
Good- will (formerly Peace and Arbitration), Church and 
Country Life, Interchurch Federations (State and Local), 
and Relations with the Orient (formerly Relations with 
Japan) ; and Committees on Foreign Missions, on Home 



History and Organization 3 

Missions, on Family Life and Religious Rest Day, and on 
Ministerial Relief and Sustentation. 

The Home Missions Council is a cooperating body of the 
Federal Council. The Commission on Temperance is in alli- 
ance with the National Temperance Society. The Commis- 
sion on International Justice and Good-will cooperates with 
the World Alliance for Promoting International Friendship 
through the Churches. 

The Commission on the Church and Social Service was the 
first to be effectively organized, as its work seemed to offer 
a larger immediate field for common action. The Commis- 
sions on International Justice and Good-will, on Evangelism, 
on the Church and Country Life, and on Interchurch Federa- 
tions also have offices and executive secretaries. 

Other special commissions or committees are appointed 
from time to time to take up special activities calling for 
action upon the part of the churches. 

The Functions of the Council 

One of the important results of the work during the first 
quadrennium was the development of a more intimate ac- 
quaintance and a better understanding between the great 
bodies in the Council through working together and through 
the larger view which each has gained of the other's work 
by means of this mutual relation. This bond of fellowship 
has constantly and rapidly become stronger. One of the chief 
tasks of the Council is that of educating the churches in the 
interest of united action. 

Its general functions require careful development, owing 
to the wide variety in ecclesiastical polity among its various 
constituent bodies. It is generally conceded, however, that 
it should represent and declare the common conscience of 
the Christian churches upon important questions with regard 
to which the common consciousness of Christianity is prac- 
tically unanimous. This is best illustrated by its declarations 
on the problems of the social order and concerning the 
moral life of the nation. For example, upon such questions 
as international peace no concerted action can be taken except 
by such a comprehensive representative body as the Council. 

One of its important functions is the constant creation on 



4 Federal Council Year Book 

the part of the churches of a state of mind which has 
deepened their sense of fellowship. This it accomplishes by 
bringing together upon every possible occasion its widely 
varying elements for consultation and common action. This 
is illustrated by such a movement as the coordination of the 
religious forces of the nation for work together during the 
Panama-Pacific Exposition. 

The national office of the Council is creating a large body 
of literature calculated to increase and deepen the sense of 
fellowship and develop united action upon the part of the 
churches and to set forth their common obligations. 

State and Local Federations 

While the Federal Council is constituted solely of the 
national denominations, it has a cooperative relationship with 
state and local federations. 

The weakness or effectiveness of local federations is de- 
termined for the most part by local situations and is largely 
dependent upon the community sense of unity and fraternity. 

The Commission on Interchurch Federations (State and 
Local) by correspondence, literature, and secretarial visita- 
tion, is continuously engaged in propagating this work. 

The various denominations are called upon for a small 
apportionment which, however, even if fully met, would cover 
less than half the expenses of the national office. 

The Council has instructed the treasurer to seek for the 
remaining amount from individual subscriptions, and from 
appropriations in the budgets of individual churches. 

Correlation and unification unquestionably mean efficiency 
and economy. The work which the various denominations 
are brought to do in common costs very much less than it 
does when each denomination attempts it independently. 

The subscriptions in the main are sought for the national 
office and the Washington office of the Council itself. The 
Commission on the Church and Social Service is maintained 
by a large number of sustaining memberships of small and 
moderate amounts. The Commission on the Church and 
Country Life is sustained by special contributions. The 
Commission on International Justice and Good-will is main- 
tained by a special gift for the purpose, and the Commission

on Interchurch Federations is responsible for the main- 
tenance of its particular work.

ference for their approval :

history and organization of commission on the churcpi 
and social service 

The Federal Council, including thirty evangelical denomi- 
nations and communions as constituent bodies, operates in the 
interest of Social Service through the Commission on the 
Church and Social Service, appointed at the organization of 
the Council in Philadelphia, 1908. At Philadelphia the pre- 
vious Committee on the Church and Modern Industry gave 
utterance to a message which was unanimously adopted by 
the Council, has become historic, has since been reaffirmed by 
practically all the leading church assemblies and received with 
gladness by social leaders and workers in all spheres of 
service. 

The Commission on the Church and Social Service was 
thoroughly organized, and in the spring of 1911, Rev. Charles 
S. Macfarland was elected as its Secretary, its offices being 
in association with those of the Federal Council. 



30 Federal Council Year Book 

Dr. Tippy, now the Associate Secretary of the Federal 
Council, also serves as the Secretary of the Commission, in 
association with the denominational social service secretaries, 
all of whom are associate secretaries of the Federal Council 
Commission, forming what is known as the Secretarial 
Council, and Rev. Charles Stelzle acts as Field Secretary. 

The offices of the Commission contain a large Social 
Service Library, which adds all the latest books, has on file 
about two hundred social and industrial magazines and 
papers, and contains the literature pertaining to social work 
issued by all the movements, both religious and general. 

Its most important work is that of correlating and coordi- 
nating the various denominational commissions and move- 
ments; and it has already gone a long way in bringing the 
denominational work into unity. 

CONFERENCES 

Its first interdenominational conference was held at Boston 
in June, 191 1, and consisted of representatives of the evan- 
gelical denominations which were definitely organized in 
the interest of social service. This preliminary conference 
requested that Secretaries Macfarland, Atkinson, Crouch, 
Stelzle, and Ward arrange for an interdenominational con- 
ference to which all the constituent bodies of the Federal 
Council should be invited to send delegates. In accordance 
with this action, at an interdenominational conference held at 
Chicago, November, 191 1, seventeen denominations were 
represented by delegates elected or appointed by denomina- 
tional action, and the agreement was that the various denom- 
inational committees and departments should cooperate 
through the Federal Council Commission. 

A third conference, -with a large attendance representing 
nearly all the constituent denominations of the Federal 
Council, was held at Chicago in December, 1912. 

SECRETARIAL FORCES 

A secretarial council was recommended, to consist of 
the denominational secretaries of those Commissions having 
such executives, with the understanding that the secretary 



Commissions and Committees 31 

of the Federal Council Commission on Social Service should 
represent in the council all the other denominations which 
did not have executive secretaries. 

The Commission has voted that these secretaries be made 
associate secretaries of the Federal Council Commission, 
subject to the acceptance of the arrangement by the denom- 
inational organizations. These associate secretaries are as 
follows : Rev. Henry A. Atkinson, Secretary of the Congrega- 
tional Commission on Social Service; Rev. Samuel Z. Batten, 
Secretary of the Baptist Department of Social Service and 
the Brotherhood ; Rev. Frank M. Crouch, Executive Secretary 
of the Protestant Episcopal Joint Commission ; Rev. Harry F. 
Ward, Secretary of the Methodist Federation for Social Serv- 
ice; J. E. McAfee, of the Board of Home Missions of the 
Presbyterian Church; Rev. Charles O. Gill, Secretary of 
the Federal Council Commission on the Church and Country 
Life, and Rev. Charles Stelzle. Through this Council the de- 
nominational agencies are working together, issuing their lit- 
erature in common, dividing the work and cooperating at 
every possible point, both nationally and locally, and each 
secretary, so far as it does not interfere with his denomina- 
tional interests, is making his work interdenominational. 

GENERAL PLAN OF WORK 

The work of the Commission is proceeding in this way, 
conceiving its function to be mainly that of bringing the de- 
nominational forces to work together and stimulating their 
activities rather than considering itself as an independent 
body. Its "Plan of Work" has been approved and adopted by 
the Executive Committee of the Federal Council, the Interde- 
nominational Social Service Conference at Chicago, the vari- 
ous denominational Commissions or Committees, and was also 
approved by the Federal Council in its sessions at Chicago, 
December, 1912, and at St. Louis, December, 1916. 

The Commission is made up of about 125 of the leading 
social workers of the nation, who represent distinctively the 
view-point of the churches, and some of the important items 
in its current program are as follows : 

Close relationship is being established with the theological 
seminaries, the schools for training social workers, and other 



32 Federal Council Year Book 

institutions of learning, in the particular interest of training 
men and women for a social service which will have the dis- 
tinctively spiritual point of view. 

The commission has placed itself at the disposal of such 
appropriate organizations as the National Conference of 
Charities and Correction, the Southern Sociological Congress, 
the National Child Labor Committee, the American Public 
Health Association, the American Institute of Criminal Law 
and Criminology, the Playground and Recreation Association 
of America, the Child Welfare Congress, the National Munici- 
pal League, and National Purity Congress, the National Civic 
Federation, the Consumers' League, the American Association 
for Labor Legislation, the National Association for the Pre- 
vention of Tuberculosis, the American Social Hygiene Asso- 
ciation, the National Prison Committee, the Russell Sage 
Foundation Department of Surveys and Exhibits, the Ameri- 
can Sociological Society, the Academy of Political and So- 
cial Science, the various schools of civics, philanthropy, and 
social work, and other similar organizations, and has sent 
fraternal visitors to their annual meetings. 

Plans are arranged to cooperate with the Industrial and 
Social Service Departments of the International Committee 
of the Young Men's Christian Associations, and the Industrial 
Department of the Young Women's Christian Association, 
and the Young People's Society of Christian Endeavor and 
kindred societies, so that the work of these important agencies 
may be fully available for the use of the churches. 

One of its most important movements is its nation-wide 
campaign for one-day-in-seven for industrial workers, which 
has been unanimously approved by the constituent bodies 
and also officially by the American Federation of Labor. 
Labor Sunday was appointed by the Federal Council at the 
suggestion of the American Federation of Labor. The secre- 
taries of the Commission are received as fraternal delegates 
at the annual sessions of the American Federation of Labor 
and also of the Women's Trade Union League. Rev. Charles 
Stelzle is directing movements for the conservation of human 
life and temperance among working men. 

The various secretaries of the Council are developing 
social evangelism and civic revivals, and they are available 



Commissions and Committees 33 

for the services of church federations and other organiza- 
tions in local communities for this purpose. 

Several important investigations have been made, particu- 
larly of the industrial conditions in the steel industry at 
South Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and the industrial warfare at 
Muscatine, Iowa. Secretary Henry A. Atkinson also pre- 
pared a report on the industrial situation in Michigan and 
Colorado, and a committee of the Massachusetts Federation 
of Churches prepared for the Commission a report on the 
situation at Lawrence, Massachusetts, and a committee has 
been making an inquiry in the anthracite region in Pennsyl- 
vania. A committee has also been instructed to report on 
prison conditions. 

The literature of the Commission is assuming large pro- 
portions, and includes the reports of these investigations, 
study courses and bibliographies, social service catechisms, 
and similar material for the guidance and instruction of 
pastors and church classes, covering social questions and 
presenting them from the point of view of the obligation and 
opportunity of the churches. Arrangements are being made 
to secure the publication of books jointly with other organ- 
izations issuing common publications, especially those issu- 
ing home mission, industrial, and social service handbooks, 
like the Missionary Education Movement, and the Association 
Press. The secretaries themselves contribute to the litera- 
ture on social service, new books having recently appeared, by 
Secretaries Ward, Batten, Macfarland, Gill, Atkinson, and 
Stelzle. 

The churches are also working increasingly together in 
local communities. Most of the federations of churches 
are formed with community problems and social uplift as their 
objectives. 

In some cities, social service secretaries have been en- 
gaged to give their whole time to the work of the federated 
churches. 

The Commission on the Church and Social Service has the 
cooperation of other commissions and departments of the 
Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in America, 
including the Commission on the Church and Country Life, 
the Commission on Interchurch Federations (State and 



34 Federal Council Year Book 

Local), the Commission on International Justice and Good- 
will, the Commission on Temperance, and the Commission 
on Christian Education, which has assisted in preparing social 
service material for study courses. 

The Commission on the Church and Social Service also 
works in sympathetic relation with the Federal Council Com- 
mission on Evangelism, both of these commissions realizing 
that their work is a common one. 

During the Panama-Pacific Exposition an exhibit was 
maintained by the Commission, and its work was also set 
forth by daily illustrated lectures in a hall connected with 
the exhibit under the direction of Mr. G. B. St. John. 

Literature describing the work of the churches in associa- 
tion with the Federal Council may be obtained on application 
to the Rev. Worth M. Tippy, Secretary, 612 United Charities 
Building, 105 East 22d Street, New York City. 

The Year Book of the Church and Social Service gives in 
full the information here referred to. 

Commission on International Justice and Good-will 

Created to promote peace and international arbitration on a 
basis of justice and good-will. The Commission cooperates 
with the American Council of the World Alliance for Pro- 
moting International Friendship through the Churches and 
invites every denomination to establish a Peacemakers' Com- 
mission and every congregation to form a Peacemakers* 
Committee to secure wide study of international problems 
with the hope of ultimately Christianizing America's inter- 
national relations, and of helping to bring in a Christian 
world order. 
Secretaries, Rev. Charles S. Macfarland, Rev. Sidney L. Gulick 

Commission on Christian Education 

This Commission considers and reports upon matters of 
moral and religious education. The Commission has adopted 
a plan for promoting religious instruction among the pupils 
of the public schools and has had prepared an outline of 
twelve lessons on international peace for the guidance of 
denominational committees and editors in the preparation

of a course of study for adult Bible classes, young people's 
societies, missionary and fraternal societies, etc. 

Commission on Temperance and National Temperance 

Society 

The Commission and the National Temperance Society 
have been merged. 

The aim of the Commission is to cooperate as much as 
possible with the denominational temperance commissions of 
the constituent churches and to aid in organizing such com- 
missions where they do not now exist. 

The purposes are to compile the information, through a 
research department, of the results of experience obtained 
in industrial plants, on railroads, and in the army and navy 
since the principle of temperance has been applied. 

To cooperate with and furnish temperance information 
and exhibits to the welfare, health, safety, and efficiency 
departments of municipalities, railroads, industrial plants, and 
business corporations. 

To hold educational and welfare expositions throughout 
the United States, in cooperation with other temperance 
organizations and civic agencies, showing the underlying 
causes of poverty, crime, and domestic unhappiness, and the 
beneficial economic results secured through temperance. 

To secure the active cooperation of the moving picture 
film companies, theater owners and their trade publications, 
in presenting temperance information through special slides 
and photoplays. 

To urge the universal observance of the annual "World's 
Temperance Sunday." 

To emphasize the importance of temperance as an economic 
issue in connection with civic celebrations on the Fourth of 
July, and 

To stress voluntary personal abstinence — a practical solu- 
tion of the problem.

Until 19 1 5 this work was operated as a department of the 
Commission on the Church and Social Service. 

The Rev. Charles O. Gill has been engaged as field investi- 
gator in this department, and the first results of this work 
appear in The Country Church, an important volume pub- 
lished by authority of the Federal Council. Mr. Gill has also 
investigated rural church conditions in Europe, as a com- 
missioner of the Federal Council, and his report was pub- 
lished in part in the annual report to the Executive Com- 
mittee, in 1914. 

In December, 1915, the Commission held a Conference on 
the Church and Country Life at Columbus, Ohio, the attend- 
ance at which 600 delegates from 31 states were registered. 
In recognition of the significance of the country church move- 
ment in the life of the nation, the President of the United 
States made a special journey from Washington to Columbus 
to attend and address this convention. Important reports on 
subjects relating to church and country life have been issued 
by the subcommittees of the Commission.

LOCAL FEDERATIONS OF CHURCHES 

The most noteworthy progress toward Christian unity in 
the last five years has come through the cooperation of the 
Churches in efforts to correct community conditions which 
militate against the influence of the churches. During this 
period the Commission of the Federal Council on State and 
Local Federations has been cultivating this spirit of fellow- 
ship. The literature prepared by the secretary, Professor 
Alfred Williams Anthony, has not only helped to create public 
opinion, but to indicate lines of cooperation. 

The Men and Religion Forward Movement gave a great 
impetus to this work. In several cities the conservation of 
the messages and methods of this movement resulted in the 
forming of permanent interchurch organizations. In each 
case there has been a gradual evolution of these organizations. 
Through varied experiences they have come to be very sim- 



Commissions and Committees 39 

ilar. There was formed a year ago an association of the 
executive secretaries of these bodies. Each was a pioneer, 
each was working without precedents, yet when these men 
came together for the first time, there was remarkable agree- 
ment between them as to principles, scope of work, and 
methods. 

Two years ago the Commission on Federated Movements 
was formed with Mr. Fred B. Smith Chairman, Rev. Roy B. 
Guild, Executive Secretary, and Mr. James A. Whitmore, 
Field Secretary. This Commission has made a careful study 
of the status of interchurch work, has brought into closest 
fellowship may interdenominational and non-denominational 
organizations. Recently it has been engaged in more aggres- 
sive work in forming state and local federations. 

At the last meeting of the Federal Council the two Com- 
missions named above were merged into the "Commission on 
Interchurch Federation (State and Local)." Mr. Fred B. 
Smith is the Chairman of this newly formed Commission, 
Rev. Roy B. Guild is the Executive Secretary. The offices of 
the Commission are at 105 East 226. Street. 

For the sake of those who wish to secure information about 
existing federations, the following list is given of those states 
and cities which have employed executive secretaries. 

Note. — Where the secretary is employed for part time, it is indicated by a sin- 
gle star (*). Where the secretary is an office secretary, it is indicated by a double

Besides the above named federations, this Commission by 
a recent questionnaire learned that there are at least sixty-one 
other Interchurch Federations or councils including laymen in 
their membership. One hundred and seventy cities have 
ministerial alliances or unions. This questionnaire has made 
clear that continuity of effort in the church's work for the 
entire community depends upon bringing the laymen into 
such an organization. "Ministers come and ministers go, but 
the laymen stay on forever." A Ministers' Union can render 
no larger service to a community than to develop inter- 
church organizations, including laymen and ministers. In 
larger cities no measurable degree of success can be expected 
except by securing an executive secretary for all or part time. 

The literature for forming such organizations and working 
out a program is now available. The Commission when pos- 
sible will contribute the service of its secretary.

now included in the Baptist enumerations.

* Largely merged with Baptist Churches, North. 

t Statistics include both Conventions, the incorporated and the unincorporated. 

Note — The difference between the totals for 1916 and 1915 does not represent the actual increase 
of 1916, for the reason that there has been one extraordinary change. The fibres for member- 
ship of the Disciples of Christ have been reduced by the denominational statisticians by about 
185,000, and those for membership of the National Baptist Convention have been increased by 
adjustment by about 115,000.— Editor.

The American National Council held its first Conference 
at Garden City, N. Y., April 25, 1916. It is composed of 260 
of the leading Christian citizens of the United States who 
come from forty-one different communions, whose combined 
church membership exceeds 23,000,000. The American 
Council in dealing with the constituent bodies of the Federal 
Council of the Churches of Christ in America, works in co- 
operation with its Commission on International Justice and 
Good-will. This world movement is entirely free from 
questions concerning church organization and doctrine. All 
Christians may and should unite in establishing a Christian 
world order. 

The American Council and the Commission on Interna- 
tional Justice and Good-will of the Federal Council of 



Peace Societies 177 

Churches invite every local congregation to establish its own 
Peacemakers* Committee to cooperate with them in Chris- 
tianizing America's international relations and in helping 
them to establish a Christian w^orld order. 

The Purpose and Work of the Peacemakers' Committee 
is to connect the local congregation with the world movement 
of the churches and to promote study in the local community 
of the principles of Christian internationalism, to develop 
the intelligent convictions of church-members in regard to 
their international responsibilities and duties, and to render 
possible the collective action of Christian citizens in making 
America's international relations Christian. 

Every Communion in the United States is invited to estab- 
lish a Peacemakers' Commission while State and City Federa- 
tions of Churches are also invited to establish suitable com- 
mittees which may be called Peacemakers' Federations and 
Leagues. The special work of these general committees is 
to further the establishment of Peacemakers' Committees by 
their local congregations and to promote a nation-wide cam- 
paign of education in Christian internationalism. 

A Manual of Suggestions for Peacemakers' Committees 
describes in detail the available literature and the methods of 
work which such committees may undertake. 

Every Peacemakers' Committee should enroll promptly at 
the national office, 105 East 226. St., New York City, in order 
to render its best service both locally and nationally.

FOREIGN MISSIONS STATISTICS OF NORTH 
AMERICA, 1916 

Prepared by the Special Subcommittee on Statistics of 

THE Committee of Reference and Counsel of the 

Foreign Missions Conference 

The following tables include an abbreviated statistical 
statement of the income, staff, and mission work, so far as 
these are known, of all Protestant organizations of Canada 
and the United States directing or aiding the missionary 
enterprise in Alaska, Hawaii, Latin America, Europe, and 
the non-Christian world, excepting those "Home Mission" 
Boards working in one or more of these fields. A total of 
the expenditure of the latter organizations in these areas 
will be found in the table of summation. 

In addition to those listed, mention is made of certain 
societies whose purpose is such that attention should be 
called to them: 

The Federation of Women's Boards of Foreign Missions 
of North America, as an organization, is not responsible for 
the conduct of foreign mission work. Like the Foreign 
Missions Conference, it is a consulting body only. It has no 
income other than dues for running expenses from its con- 
stituency. 

The China Medical Board of the Rockefeller Foundation, 
while not a direct missionary agency, has entered the field 
of cooperation with mission boards at work in China, that 
medical missions may be strengthened and materially helped. 
It is in process of establishing at Peking and Shanghai medi- 
cal schools of the first rank, besides lending its assistance 
to existing institutions in other parts of China. 

The World's Student Christian Federation is not technic- 
ally a missionary society. Its work in mission lands is 
missionary in character, serving the students of all institu- 
tions, whether denominational or otherwise. 

The Mandingo Association is a recently formed organiza- 

189 



190 Federal Council Year Book 

tion to develop a distinctive Christian African civilization, 
adapted to the needs of the people. It is to be promoted in the 
country itself and through the people themselves, and all 
permeated by the teachings of Jesus Christ. 

The Laymen's Missionary Movement, working in the 
interest of both home and foreign missions, is one of the 
very effective "home base" organizations. 

Three additional educational institutions, with American 
boards of trustees, should regularly be reported: Iconium 
College, which has had its work interrupted by the war; 
Peking University, which is being reorganized as the union 
institution for higher education in North China; and Cairo 
University, which has not yet begun its work. 

Formerly these statistics were prepared by the "Home 
Base Committee,"' under the direction of the Rev. Fred P. 
Haggard, D.D., whose faithful work made the presentation 
possible. A few slight changes in the typographical form 
have been made, but no essential change in the plan of 
gathering or presenting the information has been adopted. 
Owing to the departure of Dr. Haggard for Russia, it was 
necessary that the work be placed in new hands at a late 
date. Charity with respect to minor errors will therefore 
not be amiss. The unavoidable delay in doing the preliminary 
work also explains the failure of many organizations to send 
returns for use in these tables. 

The committee is especially grateful for the ready coopera- 
tion on the part of those societies and organizations which 
are not affiliated with the Foreign Missions Conference. The 
response from these has been as general and as cordial as it 
has been from those directly related to the Conference. 



FOREIGN MISSIONS STATISTICS OF NORTH AMERICA 



SUMMARY 

Note: — This table includes data for those areas only which are included in this survey. Incomes for 
the "Home Mission" Societies amounting to $576,931 were reported through the Home Missions 
Council. Allowance has been made for duplication of entries. 

Certain organisations are here recorded which raise money for missions and which have their own 
identity in home base activities, but whose incomes at home and whose work abroad are reported fully 
by other organizations. The totals under each heading in the detailed tables are the totals for the 146 
Societies in column 1 of this table. The 49 Societies here indicated in column 2 represent those organiza- 
tions whose names in each case are indented in the list of Societies which are further indicated by the 
double asterisk (**) foot notes.

CHURCH AND SUNDAY SCHOOL STATISTICS 

STATISTICS OF THE CHURCHES OF THE UNITED 
STATES FOR 1916 

Gathered and Arranged by 
H. K. Carroll^ LL.D. 

These statistics cover the territory of the United States 
and its possessions exclusively. Ministers, churches, and 
communicants of various denominations in foreign countries 
are deducted from the denominational totals. 

Where official denominational returns are to be had, they 
are used. Where such returns are not available, the best 
denominational sources of information are sought for ap- 
proximate figures. In some cases the census returns of 1906 
are the latest and only ones available. It is chiefly the very 
small bodies which report no statistics. 

Estimates, generally by denominational statisticians, are 
given in a few cases for the increase of the year, where 
denominational reports are not ready. 

The order of arrangement follows the alphabet, and classi- 
fication is according to name or to historical relation. The 
non-Christian bodies are few and easily separable from the 
Christian. A great body of evangelical churches, embracing 
nearly eighteen million communicants, is found in the Table 
of the constituent bodies of the Federal Council of the 
Churches of Christ in America. There are, of course, evan- 
gelical bodies not included in the Council, for example, the 
Southern Baptist Convention. 

It is necessary to give again a word of explanation con- 
cerning the figures for the Roman Catholic Church in the 
column of communicants. The "Official Catholic Directory" 
reports only "population," which includes with communicants 
the unconfirmed baptized; that is, children who have not 
been admitted to their first communion. The rule adopted in 

204 



Statistics of Religious Bodies 205 

the census of 1890, and followed in that of 1906, deducts 15 
per cent from Catholic population and sets down the re- 
maining 85 per cent as communicants. Representatives of 
that church object to the process, but as the rule to report 
only members or communicants is applied to all other denom- 
inations, there is obviously no convenient way of making an 
exception in this case. It should be said that the figures for 
"population" in "The Official Catholic Directory" are, for a 
large number of dioceses and archdioceses, estimates, given 
in round numbers; as, for example, Baltimore, 261,000; 
Boston, 900,000; Cincinnati, 200,000. 

The figures for Jewish members are misleading. The de- 
nomination furnishes no statistics, and nothing later than the 
figures gathered directly by circular from congregations by 
the Government in its census of 1906 is obtainable. The 
census gives an even smaller number of members than this 
table, counting only heads of families, according to the Jewish 
rule. The number of adults connected with Jewish congre- 
gations must be 700,000 or more. 

The Christian Catholic Church (Dowie) has for years 
refused to give statistical information. So also have the 
Catholic Apostolic branches. The Church of Christ, Scientist, 
has furnished no returns for members since 1907. 

Changes in the totals for 19 15 have been made. In not a 
few cases the statistics officially given for that year proved to 
be incorrect and were revised a year later by the denomina- 
tional authorities. In other instances, estimates given in 
advance of regular returns needed to be slightly increased 
or decreased. For 1915 the Disciples of Christ were repre- 
sented by the figures given for the previous year, those for 
191 5 having been delayed by the process of revision. When 
the returns for 191 5 appeared they showed an apparent de- 
crease of about 229,000 members which, the denominational 
statistician explained, was "due to the substitution of actual 
data for random guesses." The number given for 1916 
indicates a gain over the revised figures for 19 15 of about 
44,000. There is an apparent heavy loss of churches of that 
denomination this year due, we are told, to the same cause. 
Fortunately, such immense changes are rare, most of the 
revisions being of minor importance. 



206 Federal Council Year Book 

THE GAINS OF THE CHURCHES IN 1916 

The churches of the United States have not suffered seri- 
ous financial losses from the European war and the increased 
cost of living the past year; as to church-membership there 
has been an encouraging increase over the year 191 5. The 
churches have given freely toward the millions of money 
sent to the war-afflicted populations of Europe and Asia, and 
yet maintained their own regular work, evangelistic, mis- 
sionary, benevolent, and educational, with undiminished force. 
It appears from the full statistical tables which follow that the 
religious bodies. Catholic, Protestant, Eastern Orthodox, and 
non-Christian, had in 1916 an aggregate of over 40,000,000 
communicants or members, crossing the forty million mark 
by about 17,000. The net increase of the year was 747,000, or 
204,000 more than the increase for 191 5. In 1890 the total 
religious strength was 20,618,000, so that in twenty-six years 
following the net increase has been 19,398,000 or 94 per cent., 
while the gain in the population of the country for the same 
period has been about 39,000,000 or 61 per cent. The churches 
therefore gained faster than the population during this period. 
Of the gains in 1916 about 216,000 were of the Roman Cath- 
olic Church, and some 500,000 of the Protestant bodies. 
Among the latter, 136,000 are credited to the Methodist, 132,- 
000 to the Baptist, and upward of 79,000 to the Presbyterian 
and Reformed group. The Disciples of Christ had a gain of 
44,000 on the basis of their revised returns for 191 5, the 
Episcopal Church of 27,000, and the Lutheran bodies of 
20,000. 

It quite clearly appears that what are known as evangelical 
churches are still enjoying a healthy growth, although their 
percentage of gains may on the average be slightly declining. 
The group of thirty churches constituting the Federal Coun- 
cil report a net increase of 254,000 members over last year, 
though four of the bodies, aggregating more than 1,600,000 
communicants, do not count at all in the gains for 19 16, not 
having reported any later figures than for 1913 or 1914 
except in one case. The totals of the group are 17,996,435 
members, 139,083 churches, and 103,622 ministers. 

The gain in 1916 in number of churches of all denomina- 
tions was small, only 117. In the previous year, however, 



Statistics of Religious Bodies 207 

there was a net loss. The smallness of the increase this year 
is due to decreases reported by several denominations and 
denominational groups. The Disciples of Christ sustain an 
apparent loss of 769 churches caused by faulty method of 
counting in previous years; the Methodist Episcopal Church 
loses 68, the Northern Baptist 33, the Northern Presbyterian 
97, the Episcopal 7. These and other losses reduce the con- 
siderable gains of the Roman Catholics, 199, the United 
Brethren, 70, the Lutheran Synodical Conference, 105, etc. 
It is quite evident that rural churches in particular are being 
closed or merged for the sake of economy and efficiency. 

The gain in ministers is 2,643, which is nearly double that 
of 191 5. The largest gain, 478, is reported by the Roman 
Catholic Church; the Baptists added 365, the Lutherans 159, 
and other bodies smaller numbers.

DISTRIBUTION OF CHURCH-MEMBERS BY STATES 

For Denominations Embracing Four Fifths of the Total 
Membership in the United States 

This table includes all those denominations which were 
able to furnish statistics of their members by states, and it 
represents only Continental United States, excluding 
Alaska, Hawaii, and the colonial possessions. 

Not many of the churches observe state lines in reporting 
their statistics. The Baptists, the Congregationalists, and the 
Disciples of Christ do, but they are exceptions to the rule. 

Presbyteries, conferences, classes, synods, etc., often cross 
state lines, and, indeed, include parts of several states. 

The New York classis, of the Reformed Church in Amer- 
ica, for example, not only has churches, ministers, and mem- 
bers in New York City, but also in Maine, Kentucky, Ne- 
braska, Oklahoma, and New Mexico. 

The Synod of Appalachia of the Southern Presbyterian 
Church, has churches in the states of Virginia, North Caro- 
lina, and Tennessee. 

Conferences of the Methodist Episcopal Church lap and 
overlap one another in a quite bewildering way. For ex- 
ample, the Delaware Conference, (colored) covers territory 
embraced in a dozen white conferences, having churches 
not only in Delaware, but also in Maryland, Virginia, Penn- 
sylvania, New Jersey, and New York. Then the East Ger- 
man and East Swedish Conferences occupy also part of the 
same territory. 

The dioceses of the Protestant Episcopal Church generally 
do not cross state lines, but there are some notable excep- 
tions. 

The dioceses of the Roman Catholic Church, in a number 
of cases, ignore state lines. 

The compilations, with half a dozen exceptions, were made 
or revised by denominational statisticians. Those for the 

216 



Church-Members by States 217 

Lutherans, made by Dr. Kopenhaver, include the various 
bodies of that name, but are incomplete. For most of the 
denominations the figures, where not strictly accurate, are 
at least approximate. 

All the denominations represented, with one exception — 
the Roman Catholic — belong to the Evangelical list. Three 
large colored Methodist bodies, having, perhaps, a million 
and a half of members, furnish no statistics of any kind; the 
Evangelical Association and the United Evangelical Church, 
the Mennonites, the Christian Church and other bodies give 
no indication of state lines in their reports. 

The total of members or communicants of the bodies repre- 
sented in the table is 33,299,142, which is more than four fifths 
of the grand total of all religious bodies in the United States, 
Christian and Non-Christian. Any comparison that may be 
attempted with the population of the states must take this 
fact into account. 

Considering Protestants only, the states show preferences 
as follows: 

Alabama, two thirds Baptist. 

Arkansas, more than half Baptist. 

Delaware, nearly half Methodist. 

Georgia, Baptist largely. 

Indiana, Methodist largely. 

Iowa, Methodist largely. 

Kansas, a Methodist state. 

Kentucky, a Baptist state. 

Maine, Baptist, first; Alethodist, second; and Congrega- 
tionalist, third. 

Maryland, a Methodist state. 

Massachusetts, a Congregationalist state. 

Michigan, a Methodist state. 

Minnesota, Lutheran. 

Mississippi, Baptist. 

Missouri, Baptist. 

Nebraska, Methodists lead. 

New Hampshire, Congregationalists lead. 

New Jersey, Methodists lead, 121,832. 

New York, more Methodists, 376,285. 

North Carolina, more Baptists, 420,428. 



218 Federal Council Year Book 

North Dakota, more Lutherans, 

Ohio, Methodists predominate, 393,000. 

Oklahoma: Methodists, 99,846; Baptists, 99,340; there are 
other Baptist bodies, but there are also other Methodist bodies 
to be heard from. 

Pennsylvania : first, Presbyterians, 398,034 ; second, Luther- 
ans, 388,157; third, Methodists, 376,223. 

Rhode Island is an Episcopal state; with Baptists a close 
second. 

South Carolina is a Baptist state. 

South Dakota is a Lutheran state. 

Tennessee, the Baptists are first. 

Texas: the Baptists are first, 500,698; the Methodists 
second, 357,812; the Roman Catholics third, 346,962. 

Utah is Mormon. 

Vermont, the Congregationalists lead. 

Virginia, Baptists first, Methodists second. 

Washington is strongly Methodist. 

West Virginia is strongly Methodist. 

Wisconsin is strongly Lutheran. 

As to the Roman Catholic Church, it is first in all New 
England, in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Mary- 
land, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mis- 
souri, Montana, Nebraska, Arizona, New Mexico, North 
Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington, Wiscon- 
sin, and Wyoming. 

The states indicating a high proportion of communicants to 
population are Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and 
Louisiana, with one communicant to every two and a frac- 
tion of the population. 

These states have one communicant in every 3, or a little 
less of the population : Alabama, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, 
Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New 
York, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, 
South Carolina, Virginia, and Wisconsin. 

Arkansas, California, Florida, Maine, Nebraska, North 
Dakota, Tennessee, and West Virginia have one in four or a 
little less. 

Arizona and Colorado have one in five or a little less; 
Washington one in six; Oklahoma one in seven; and Nevada 



Church-Members by States 219 

one in eleven. Doubtless returns of the Mormons would 
reduce this ilumber. 

The average of the total of communicants, 33,299,142, 
given in this table to the total population, 102,017,312, is as 
one to three plus.

STATISTICS OF SUNDAY SCHOOLS 

The larger and many of the smaller denominations make 
returns for Sunday-schools in their annual statistics; but a 
considerable number, including the Roman Catholic and the 
Eastern Orthodox bodies, do not. The United States Census 
of Religious Bodies of 1906 gathered information under this 
head from these and other denominations; in fact from all 
that have Sunday-schools. Quite a number of churches, such 
as the Primitive Baptists, the Old Order Brethren, and other 
small bodies, have no Sunday-schools. 

Most of the returns given in the accompanying tables are 
for the year 1916, some are for 191 5, others are for 1914 and 
the rest go back to the census of 1906. Those for 1914 are 
taken from the full statistical tables in the Encyclopaedia of 
Sunday Schools. 

The statistics for what are known as the evangelical 
churches are probably quite accurate, though those given for 
the African Methodist Episcopal, African Methodist Epis- 
copal Zion, and Colored Methodist Episcopal Churches are 
not very recent. These bodies have reported no figures of 
any kind for two or three years. The grand totals may be 
reasonably regarded as approximate, not exact, but rather 
under than over the real figures. 

The gains in the ten years since the United States Census 
of Sunday-schools in 1906 are very large, reaching far be- 
yond six million scholars, or a percentage of 40 — . The net 
increase in membership of all the churches in the same period 
has been 4,756,433 or a percentage of 13+. That there has 
been an actual net increase of 6,116,622 scholars in the Sun- 
day-schools does not seem easy to explain, without impeach- 
ing the fulness of the returns of 1906 or the accuracy of 
those of 1916; but the distribution of gains among denomina- 
tional groups and denominations appears to confirm it.

THE WORLD'S RELIGIONS 

The sources of the world statistics which follow are indi- 
cated. It should be borne in mind that they are not very 
recent, but date back to near the beginning of the present 
century. It is certain that the figures given for Protestant 
population in North America are much too small. The Prot- 
estant population for the United States alone can hardly be 
much short of 75,000,000, to say nothing of the millions in 
Canada.

234 Federal Council Year Book 

CHIEF DIVISIONS OF PROTESTANTISM 

This is simply a first attempt to present statistics of mem- 
bers and adherents of the leading Protestant communions 
of the world. There are, of course, other bodies which could 
properly appear in this list. It is very difficult, indeed well- 
nigh impossible, to secure complete and trustworthy returns, 
which shall, at the same time, be up to date. 

The statement for the Anglican Communion is by no means 
satisfactory. It is not very late, and it is at best only approx- 
imate. 

That for the Baptists is taken from the American Baptist 
Year Book for 1915; and that for the Congregationalists from 
the Congregational Year Book for the same year. The popu- 
lation in each case is estimated on the basis of two adherents 
to each communicant. 

The presentation for Methodism may be accepted as fairly 
accurate, and is, for the most part, of latest date. 

The Lutheran figures are those of Prof. J. N. Lenkcr, 
except for the United States, and are several years old. 

The Presbyterian and Reformed statistics are taken from 
the Presbyterian Year Book for other countries than the 
United States, and are probably quite conservative. They 
are in part for 1916 and in part for 1915 and earlier years. 

The estimate of population is made on the basis of two ad- 
herents for each member in all cases in so far as the United 
States is concerned, which is probably too low for some 
denominations but high enough for the general average; 
it is also applied to Baptist and Congregational communi- 
cants in other countries. 

Population means the total of communicants or members, 
and of adherents. 

ANGLICAN COMMUNION 

The Anglican Communion includes the Church of England 
in England and Wales, Scotland and Ireland, and the British 
Colonies, and the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United 
States. The figures are not very recent except for the Protes- 
tant Episcopal Church, which are for 1916. Population in- 
cludes communicants and adherents.

SUMMARY 

Population 

Anglican Communion 26,758,267 

Baptist Communion. 21,002,211 

Congregational Communion 4 , 355 , 172 

Lutheran Communion 70,509,398 

Methodist Communion 32,418,330 

Presbyterian and Reformed Communion 30,799,854 

Total 185,843,232 

This total, which does not include a considerable number of 
minor Protestant bodies in Europe, and some large as well 
as many small Protestant bodies in the United States, is, 
nevertheless, much larger than the highest figure given by 
any of the statisticians of Europe for Protestantism in the 
world. Whitaker gives 171,651,000 as the total, and Webb- 



The World's Religions 237 

Miilhall, 177,300,000. But these estimates are not at all recent ; 
they date back to the beginning or near the beginning of the 
present century. Whitaker allots to North America only 
65,000,000 Protestant population; Wehh-Mulhall, 69,000,000. 
The former estimate is only large enough to cover the Protes- 
tant population in the United States alone in 1900, exclusive 
of Canada. There were in 1900 about 18,500,000 Protestant 
communicants in the United States, which, at the ratio of 
two and one half adherents to each communicant, would yield 
about 65,000,000 population. The number of Protestant mem- 
bers in the United States in 1916 is upward of 25,000,000, 
which, on the basis of two adherents to each communicant, 
perhaps a safer ratio, yields a Protestant population of 
75,000,000. It would therefore appear that a revision of the 
estimates for Protestantism in the world must carry it up to 
190,000,000 or 195,000,000, unless, indeed, there has been a 
large decrease of Protestants in Europe and other countries, 
of which there is no other evidence at hand than the destruc- 
tion of life by the war. 

ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH IN NORTH AMERICA 

The figures generally given for the Roman Catholic Church 
in North America will also have to be revised and brought 
down to date. According to Webb-Mulhall there was in the 
United States at the beginning of the present century 11,000,- 
000 Catholic population, and 26,800,000 in the rest of North 
America, with 37,400,000 in South America, making a total 
for America of 75,200,000. At the end of 1915 the Catholic 
population of the United States, not including our insular 
possessions, was 16,564,000; including the insular posses- 
sions, the estimate of the Catholic Directory calls for 24,922,- 
000. If to this aggregate Canada be added with 3,113,794, 
Mexico and Central America with Cuba, and other adjacent 
islands, there will be a total of more than 50,000,000 Catholic 
population for North America.
