Though a majority of teens and young adults identify as Christian, a new study suggests that only 15 percent of them have personal relationships with Christ and are deeply committed.
Most American “Millenials” – those born between 1980 and 1991 – don’t pray regularly. Few read their Bibles or other religious texts, and many don’t attend church on a weekly basis, according to a LifeWay Research study.
According to the study, one-third of all Millennials agreed strongly that they have made a personal commitment to Jesus Christ that is still important in their life today. Nearly a quarter agreed somewhat.
While most surveyed young people believe Christian churches are relevant today, only 28 percent agreed strongly.
