George Barna finds a mere nine percent of self-affirming born-again
Christians hold a Biblical worldview. The number falls to two percent in
the denominations hemorrhaging members. The study which contacted 2,033
people projected a standard four percent compliance with a classical
Biblical worldview. Even non-denominational independents only reached 13
percent congruence.

For the purposes of the research, a Biblical worldview was defined as
believing that absolute moral truths exist; that such truth is defined
by the Bible; and firm belief in six specific religious views. Those
views were that Jesus Christ lived a sinless life; God is the
all-powerful and all-knowing Creator of the universe and He still rules
it today; salvation is a gift from God and cannot be earned; Satan is
real; a Christian has a responsibility to share faith in Christ with
other people; and the Bible is accurate in all of its teachings.
