Nondenominational Church Attendance is Growing Sharply

Together, the independent and nondenominational churches of the U.S. constitute the third-largest cluster of religious adherents in the country and the second-largest cluster of churches. In 2012, an estimated 4 percent of the U.S. population (some 12,200,000 people) worshipped in an independent or nondenominational church, up more than 50 percent from the 2008 estimate of 8 million. To learn more about the rise of the independent and nondenominational Christian church movement, read a report by researcher Scott Thumma, and follow the embedded links to additional studies and material. The report is posted on the website of the Hartford Institution for Religion Research, a source for rigorous research on emerging issues in religious life.
