On October 14, 2004 Baptist Press reported, "the vast majority of Protestant clergy in America believe strongly that salvation comes only through Jesus Christ and that they have a responsibility to evangelize members of non-Christian faiths, but they also are willing to partner with non-Christian faith groups to accomplish good for society, according to a recent study. Ellison Research, a full-service marketing research firm in Phoenix that conducted the research for the September/October issue of LifeWay's Facts & Trends magazine, reported that 88 percent of senior pastors of Protestant churches said they agree strongly with the statement, 'Regardless of what other faiths believe, Jesus Christ is the only path to salvation.'"
