Religious Movement’s Website says that Willow Creek church is the second largest church, after Second Baptist in Houston, with 17,000 people in church every weekend. So they are saying that Second Baptist is the largest.
Christian Unplugged in an editorial by Voice of the Martyr said that Willow Creek is the largest church in America. And they weren’t too happy about it because a Muslim was in the pulpit.
According to Forbes, in 2003 Lakewood was the largest church in America. Then World Changers in Georgia. Second Baptist of Houston is 5th. Willow Creek is 8th. There are no Catholic churches included in the survey. Saddleback, home of Rick Warren, was 10th.
