Abstract

Religious commitment, conceptualized as "meaning" and "belonging," is examined in relation to subjective feelings of satisfaction with life. Consistent with our expectation that religious commitment acts as a resource, it was found that those who feel their religious faith is important and those who participate in religious activities also tend to feel their lives are more worth-while. It is concluded that in future studies of quality of American life, religious commitment should be included as an important correlate.
