How Many Americans are Christians?
The third American Religious Identification Survey has just been released, and it shows some interesting trends. In terms of percentage, overall self-identification as “Christian” has stayed about the same as it was in 2001 – 76%, but there have been a couple of areas of significant change:
- Non-denominational Christians have tripled in size (as a percentage) to just over eight million.
- Evangelical Christians have doubled in size (as a percentage) to over two million.
- Mainline Christians appear to have dropped the most, down to twenty-nine million.
