Presentation Abstract

The Beyond Beliefs study undertaken by ClergyEd.com and the Religion and Biblical Languages Department at Andrews University investigated responses to the Seventh-day Adventist Creation fundamental with a sample 679 Millennial young adults. This component of the Beyond Beliefs study asked participants to select a statement that best described their belief regarding the origin of the world; to identify how strongly they felt about this belief; and if they would be bothered if life on earth came about differently or on a different time scale than what they currently believed. The findings suggest that Seventh-day Adventist Millennial young adults hold varying views relating to the origin of the world; that they claim they feel very strongly about these beliefs; however, if life on earth came about differently or on a different time scale than what they currently believe, most would not lose their faith.
