(This is taken from a report from the National Council of Churches. Just think if Joseph Smith was looking for a church today!)
P.S. It was brought to my attention that the column on the far left that contains percentage of increase or decrease in conversions isn’t showing up. I reccomend clicking on this link: http://www.ncccusa.org/news/080215yearbook1.html to view a more indepth study online.
Jehovah’s Witnesses had the best conversion rate last year with 2.25% and LDS had the next with 1.56%.
Episcopal Church had the worst with a -4.15% drop and Presbyterian Church was next with over -2%.
