Faith formation is a topic of considerable interest

for those involved in Christian education. In

this quantitative investigation, 580 students

from Years Four, Six, Eight and Ten from eleven

Adventist schools in Australian were surveyed

to determine their perspectives of their own

faith formation in four areas of their lives: Vision,

Gospel, Lordship and Presence. Additional items

measured student satisfaction with their Biblical

Studies classes. The results indicated that

students, on the whole, were positive about their

faith formation. Trends revealed that younger

students overall were more positive towards

their faith and Biblical Studies classes than high

school students with a gradual decline in levels

of agreement with survey items as the Year levels
