A new survey from Lifeway found that just 36 percent of Protestant churchgoers said they were familiar or very familiar with “the concept of an individual deconstructing their faith in which they systematically dissect and often reject Christian beliefs they grew up with.”
According to a new Lifeway Research survey, 66 percent of Americans said, “Biblical accounts of the physical resurrection of Jesus are completely accurate.” Conversely, 23 percent disagreed, and 11 percent were unsure.
The survey also found that, for the first time, 51 percent of Americans said the Bible is “100 percent accurate in all it teaches,” with 62 percent holding to God’s Word as their most authoritative source.
Small groups are a key component to relationship growth in the modern church, yet they have seen their popularity slide in recent years, according to a new Lifeway Research survey. The poll found that an average of 44 percent of Protestant churches’ weekly worship attendance is involved in a “small group, Sunday School class or similar group.” That’s down from 49 percent in 2010 and 50 percent in 2008.
