We examine the effects of age on five dimensions of religious commitment controlling for the effects of education, income, sex, marital status, and church membership. Age is found to have virtually no effect on any except the devotional practice dimension with which it is related positively. We suggest that older persons tend to increase activity on this dimension in an effort to reduce or alleviate anxieties. Further research is required to determine if the relationship we observe represents an aging effect or a cohort effect.
