About membership

Statistics of church membership, number of churches, congregations, pastors, etc. are those given by the churches and organizations, unless otherwise indicated. WCC member churches have various ways of defining their membership: state churches in which virtually every citizen is baptized and thus counted as a member, churches which include in their membership persons who are baptized but not actively participating, churches in which only adult baptized or communicant members are counted, etc. No attempt has been made to classify the membership figures in such categories, because agreed upon indicators to so do not exist.

The church grew out of the missionary work of Free Will Baptists in this part of India, which started in 1836. In 1911 the Free Will Baptists handed the work over to the American Baptist Foreign Mission Society.

The status of this member church is being clarified. No updated information is available. The numbers of membership and local churches are taken from the World Christian Encyclopedia and date from 1995.
