The metric compares Sunday morning worship attendance (A) with the number of conversions or salvation decisions (C), measuring how many attendees it takes to produce a convert (the AC ratio). A healthy church will have a low AC ratio of attendees to converts each year. Dr. Clarensau estimates that the AC ratio should be 5:1 or lower.

It measures whether the church is maintaining connection with converts long enough to guide them toward water baptism. Dr. Clarensau estimates that in a healthy church, the CW ratio is 3:1 or lower. For every three converts,

It asks: Are we effectively turning converts into Spirit-filled workers? Dr. Clarensau estimates that in a healthy church, if the CS ratio is less than 3:1—that is, less than 3 converts for every Spirit-baptized believer—then we are failing to mobilize our church for evangelism. If the CS ratio is greater than 4:1, however, then we are failing to disciple new converts into a Spirit-filled life.

It asks: Are we reproducing Spirit-filled believers? To measure this number, multiply your AC ratio by 3 and 4. Dr. Clarensau estimates that in a healthy church, the number will be greater than 3xAC but lower than 4xAC. In other words, if a church’s AC ratio is 4:1, its AS ratio should be between 12:1 and 16:1.
