Only a Slim US Majority Believe in God of Bible; One-Third of Americans Believe in Other Power

A new study released by the Pew Research Center shows that although some 80 percent of Americans say they believe in God, only a slim majority of the nation's approximately 327 million people believe in God as described in the Bible, the Christian Post website reports today (April 26, 2018).

And among those younger than 50, belief in the God of the Bible drops lower than 50 percent.

The findings from the survey of more than 4,700 adults nationwide between December 4-18, 2017, reveal that one-third of Americans say they do not believe in the God of the Bible, but believe there is some other higher power or spiritual force in the universe.

 Applying these results to the general population, that translates to about 109 million people who believe in a higher power that is not the God of the Bible.
