Are we a red state movement?
Three out of four members of Churches of Christ in the U.S. reside in a state that supported Republican Mitt Romney for president, an analysis by The Christian Chronicle found.
Of the 1,554,301 total Church of Christ adherents nationwide, 76 percent — or 1,182,142 — live in a red state, according to the analysis.
Almost half the red state Church of Christ adherents — 555,657, or 47 percent — call Texas or Tennessee home. Adherent figures include baptized members as well as non-baptized children and spouses associated with a congregation.
