ABSTRACT
The author reports that evangelicalism in America is not getting smaller but is just undergoing a change in affiliations or religious denomination. He cites two surveys to assert his claim, including the Baylor Religion Survey wherein researchers discovered four things, such as that Americans remain connected to congregations but less to denominations and that the unaffiliated are actually affiliated with congregations and attend evangelical churches. He also argues that the evangelical young are not becoming liberals but are just more socially aware.
