January-February 2019 – A survey by Barna Group (February-May 2018) suggests that Christians hold high standards of integrity in the workplace. Researchers conducted online surveys of 1,459 employed, self-identified Christians who said their faith is important to their life. 

Among participants, 82% believe Christians should act ethically, 74% believe they should speak the truth, and 72% believe they should demonstrate morality. However, fewer than a fourth believe it is their duty to share the gospel while on the job. 

About half of those surveyed said their church provides them with a vision for living out their faith at work. In regard to equipping Christians in the workforce, the Barna report concludes by stating, “This could be a wake-up call for church leaders.”
