Faith Commitment of Born-Again Students at Secular and Evangelical Colleges
Railsback, Gary
Journal of Research on Christian Education, v15 n1 p39-60 2006
This study explored the stability and change in religious beliefs of Evangelical college students who identified themselves as born-again Christians. It sought to ascertain the differences between those that attended Christian colleges belonging to the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU) with seven other types of colleges. Respondents to the longitudinal surveys were classified into four groups for analysis based upon their responses to the survey question, "do you consider yourself a born-again Christian?" Overall, findings indicate that students attending CCCU institutions appeared to strengthen and/or maintain their Evangelical religious commitment more so than students at the other seven types of institutions. (Contains 2 tables and 3 figures.)
