On mission Christians committed
to winning North America for Christ have an enormous mission field ripe for the
harvest. The map on this page illustrates the task facing Southern Baptist
Convention (SBC) churches. It is coded by color density to show the
relationship of each congregation to the population as a whole.
Its no surprise that the density is greater in the U.S. southeastern states
and sparse in the northern provinces of Canada. But this map and the charts
below tell us so much more. They illustrate other helpful demographic
information such as 1) total populations, 2) number of SBC congregations
(includes churches and church-type missions), 3) population per SBC
congregation (which provides the data for color-coding ), 4) SBC resident
members (members who live in the proximity of the church or mission), 5)
population per resident member (population divided by the number of resident
members associated with SBC churches or missions), 6) percentage of Catholics,
7) percentage of Baptists (includes all Baptist congregations, not just
SBC), 8) percentage of other Protestants, 9) percentage of people
claiming other religions, 10) percentage of people who claim no religion.
Red dots show locations of the largest metropolitan areas in the United
States starting with New York City (21,199,865) and ending with Louisville,
