Participation In the Global Church Member Survey

The Bible emphasizes the importance of assessment and accountability.
In Genesis 1:31, God assessed His own work and declared, “It was very good.” Similarly, surveys are effective assessment tools that can provide valuable insights for decision-making.
The 2022-23 Global Church Member Survey (2022-23-GCMS) is one of twelve surveys conducted by the General Conference Office of Archives, Statistics, and Research (ASTR) over the last decade, in partnership with research teams worldwide. Would you like to know how many Adventist church members participated in this study? Let’s find out together.
