List of the largest Protestant churches in the United States

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This list of the largest Protestant churches in the United States is a non-exhaustive list of Protestant churches that have more than 2,000 members. Most of these churches are megachurches while some fall outside this definition.[1] The Hartford Institute's database lists more than 1,300 such Protestant churches in the United States. According to that data, approximately 50 churches on the list have attendance ranging from 10,000 to 47,000.[2]

Catholic Churches are not measured similarly as they don't meet the characteristics of a mega-church.[1] About 3,000 Catholic Churches have 2,000+ attending each week,[1] which is more than the 2,000 members for listing here. St Ann's in Coppell, Texas would be near the top with almost 30,000 registered parishioners.[3] One Roman Catholic Parish, St. Timothy's Catholic Community in Mesa, Arizona has characteristics of a Megachurch. Their building is large and seats 4,000 people. Their masses use contemporary praise and worship music rather than the traditional liturgies used in many Catholic churches. They also have activities similar to what is found in a Mega Church.[citation needed]

Membership numbers give only a very rough indication of size. They vary from year to year. Also, some churches report typical Sunday attendance while others report the number who are listed in church records or make financial contributions, which may be higher. Some of the larger churches are multi-site churches. Many churches deliver their message through television or other media, sometimes reaching much higher numbers than those who physically attend the church.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The "City" column indicates where each listed church has its main location.
  2. ^ Although Southeast Christian has a Louisville mailing address, its main worship complex is within the city limits of Middletown. The governments of Louisville and surrounding Jefferson County merged in 2003, but Middletown and the 82 other cities (apart from Louisville) in Jefferson County retained separate city limits and some governmental powers.
  3. ^ Although Southland Christian is historically associated with Lexington, it moved to an unincorporated area of Jessamine County, about a half-mile (800 m) from the Lexington boundary, in 1981. The church long maintained a Lexington mailing address, but now has a Nicholasville mailing address. Southland opened a new satellite campus in Lexington in 2013.
