Abstract

"While the categories on the 2013 and 2018 surveys slightly differed and results for the “strongly agree” category were lower in 2018, it appears that overall, church members are becoming more accepting of the idea of a literal six-day creation week in the relatively recent past. (In 2013 GCMS, 73% strongly agreed and 8% strongly disagreed, as opposed to the 2018 survey, where 85.7% strongly agreed/agreed and 7.8% disagreed/strongly disagreed.) This is greatly encouraging, as it demonstrates that globally, church members are more widely accepting what the Bible teaches."
