Where the world comes to study the Bible

Gallup Poll

In a yet-to-be-released poll, George Gallup, Jr., reported seven needs of the average American:

1. The need for shelter and food

2. The need to believe life is meaningful and has a purpose

3. The need for a sense of community and deeper relationships

4. The need to be appreciated and respected

5. The need to be listened to and be heard

6. The need to feel one is growing in faith

7. The need for practical help in developing a mature faith
