Primary use / Purpose:
Religious commitment refers to how much an individual is involved in his or her religion (Koenig et al., 2001). More precisely, a religiously committed person is supposed to “adhere to his or her religious values, beliefs, and practicies and use them in daily living” (Worthington et al., 2003, p. 85). The Religious Commitment Inventory-10 (RCI-10) is a valid instrument that aims to capture the interpersonal and intrapersonal commitment levels of the individual.
Test validity and reliabilities and normative data are reported in Worthington et al. (2003).
