Seven Is a Sacred Number, Isn’t It?

It boggled me that this storefront church, in the South End of Columbus, Ohio about 20 years ago, would commercialize religion by putting advertising on its sign.
Question by What’s it all about?: What’s the total membership number for First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana?
Then, how many of those are actual active members?
Answer by The Amp Man
They have one service on Sunday mornings in a 7,500 seat auditorium.
In 1990 they supposedly had a weekly attendance of 20,000. Under Jack Hyles they were running about 3 services on Sundays mornings. Now in a 7500 seat building attendance has doubled, according to the Church website.
Something about their math sounds funny as I have also heard they have over 100,000 members by Pastors loyal to all things Hyles-Anderson.
