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.
