Attachment to God Scale


The Attachment to God Scale (AGS), like other attachment measures, includes scales for anxious and avoidant dimensions of attachment (Rowatt, 2002). 

The 9-items are rated on a 7-point scale ranging from (1= strongly disagree; 7 = strongly agree).

 Rowatt and Kirkpatrick (2002) found support for two dimensions of attachment to God and reported Alpha values of .92 for avoidance and .80 for anxious attachment (Rowatt & Kirkpatrick, 2002).

If we think more positively, people who are low on anxious attachment to God would feel more secure. Likewise, people low on avoidant attachment to God would feel closer to God.


Sample items from the AGS


God seems to have little or no interest in my personal affairs.

I have a warm relationship with God.
