Faith, Spirituality, and Religion

In 2014, the Pew Research Center conducted its second Religious Landscape Study, based on telephone interviews more than 35,000 Americans from all 50 states. The city of Houston historically has been a center of Protestant Christianity and considered part of the Bible Belt.  Over time, the city has come to reflect a greater religious diversity.

While 73% of adults in the Houston metro area identifies Christian, 20% remain unaffiliated with any particular faith (2% atheist, 3% agnostic, 16% nothing in particular). The highest Christian compositions present in the metro Houston area include Evangelical Protestants (30%), Catholics (19%), Mainline Protestants (11%) and Historically Black Protestants (9%).  7% of Houston residents are of non-Christian faiths.

There will also be a Meditation, Prayer, and Reflection room, located in the Convention Center, sponsored by the Commission for Spirituality, Faith, Religion, and Meaning.
