Study: 7th-Day Adventist Church Is Most Diverse; Most Diverse US Rel. Group Due to Various Races

On a scale of 1 to 10, the Seventh-day Adventist Church in America is at a 9.1 when it comes to racial diversity and that number makes it the most diverse religious group in the United States, according to a new study from the Pew Research Center, the Christian Post website reports today (August 4, 2015).

In the new analysis looking at 29 religious groups -- including mainline Protestant denominations and others -- the Pew Research Center measured the distribution of Hispanics, non-Hispanic whites, blacks, Asians as well as mixed-race Americans and concluded that the Seventh-day Adventist Church is the most diverse of all.

A breakdown of the racial fabric of the church shows that among its adherents in the United States, 37 percent are white, 32 percent are black, 8 percent are Asian, 8 percent are mixed race, while 15 percent identify as Hispanic.

In fact, the Seventh-day Adventist Church is so diverse, it has a higher diversity index than the United States itself.
