This study investigates the relationship between different dimensions of religiosity and voluntary association participation using data from Queen’sUniversity’s 1996 “God and Society in North America” survey. I look at the participatory, devotional, affiliative, and theological dimensions of religiosity and examine how they affect voluntary association participation at three different levels: membership, volunteering, and serving on a committee. The results show that all four religious dimensions have considerable, but distinctive, influences on secular voluntary association participation.
