Finding Faith Today

Welcome to the Finding Faith Today Project

How do persons come to faith in our time? How do they adopt a religious faith as their own? Or does the faith adopt them?! Is it a journey? Or is it more like a sudden conversion? Are friends and relatives most important to the process? Do clergy matter? Are books, television, or films significant factors? What sorts of values, practices, and lifestyles tend to change for those who newly come to faith? What, if any, are the substantial differences in how one comes to faith among Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, and persons of other religious traditions? The Finding Faith Today Project is a nationwide research project that attempts to answer these and other questions.

If you have recently come to faith (or adopted a religious faith or practice) in the last ten years or so and you are an adult (age 18 and over), please take the survey below. The survey is directed toward adults who have adopted a religious faith as their own (or “converted,” or “become a member,” depending on the appropriate language), even if that happens to be a “return” to faith from an earlier commitment in one's life. The survey is available in multiple languages.
