A Snapshot of Faith Practice Across Age Groups

How often do Christians attend church? What do they believe about God? Do they regularly open their Bibles? Drawing from FaithView, Barna’s new online database for city, state and national spiritual profiles, let’s take a fresh look at one of the questions we often hear as religion researchers: How do core metrics of faith look by generation, as Christians progress through age and stage of life?

How Faith Heritage Relates to Faith Practice

Does an “inherited” religious identity contribute to the maturation and flourishing of the individual and their faith in the long run? The recent Barna report Households of Faith, produced in partnership with Lutheran Hour Ministries, finds some (at times surprising) links between faith heritage and present faith practice.

Millennial Non-Christians Show Greater Spiritual Curiosity Than Older Adults

Despite the growing indifference toward Christianity, especially among young people, there appears to be a spiritual curiosity among Millennials. Barna’s recent report Reviving Evangelism, shows that Millennials report many more faith conversations or even evangelistic encounters than older non-Christians. For at least some young adults, there appears to be deeper interest in spirituality in general, and in Christianity specifically.

Four-Year Study Reveals Unexpected Views of Religious Liberty

How do pastors and the general public define terms related to religious freedom, and how do they view its fate in the United States? A recent Barna report, Faith Leadership in a Divided Culture, finds that although faith leaders and the general public agree on a definition for religious freedom, they have evolving outlooks regarding its future.

State of the Bible 2019: Trends in Engagement

Each year, Barna examines behaviors and beliefs related to the Bible among American adults, a study conducted in partnership with American Bible Society. In the 2019 “State of the Bible” report, we find encouraging boosts in Bible engagement and that, despite continued skepticism, scripture still impacts the daily lives and beliefs of many Americans.
