The First Baptist Church of Pittsburgh: Attitude Assessment Study.
Corder, Lloyd E.; Yarbrough, Charles G., Jr.
A communication audit (questionnaire) of the First Baptist Church of Pittsburgh was undertaken to help discern the attitudes and beliefs of the congregation about a number of issues and church practices. The goal of the audit team was to: (1) identify the strengths and weaknesses of the Sunday morning worship service; (2) assess the performance of ministers; and (3) seek information about denominational associations, memberships and support, publications, and church office staff. Additionally, background information about the members of the First Baptist Church was obtained as well as views of current issues and opinions about the use of the church building by outside groups. Data compiled from a large sample of church members (108 individuals returned the questionnaires) identified areas of general concern to the congregation. (Nineteen tables of data are included with corresponding analyses of statistically significant patterns.) (KEH)
