NASHVILLE (BP) -- Most young adults who attended church as a teenager say they believe in God today, but fewer consider themselves devout Christians, according to a study released Thursday (Jan. 31). And as a whole, they have conflicting recollections about the churches they attended in high school.
LifeWay Research surveyed more than 2,000 American adults between the ages of 23 and 30 who attended a Protestant church twice a month or more for at least a year as a teenager. Researchers conducted the survey Sept. 15-Oct. 13, 2017.
The study shows 39 percent say they consider themselves a devout Christian with a strong faith in God. Fewer consider themselves Christian, but not particularly devout (27 percent). Even fewer say they believe in God but are uncertain of Christianity (14 percent) or say they consider themselves spiritual, but not religious (11 percent). Read More
