Abstract: The purpose of the present study was to assess the levels of religious thinking of young children and to determine whether there was a significant relationship between the religious practices of the children and their families and the religious thinking levels of the children. The subjects included in the study were 60 children four, five, and six years of age and their parents selected randomly from the list of children attending three Seventh-day Adventist Churches and one large Baptist Church Kindergarten Day Care Center. Thirty children and their parents were selected from the Whitesburg Kindergarten, and 30 children and their parents were selected from the three Seventh-day Adventist Churches. A stratified random sample was selected from each group so that there were 20 children in each age group.
