dc.description.abstractThis study is the first to link the literatures of divine attachment and affective organizational commitment (AC). Existing research overlooks divine attachment as a "personal characteristic" relevant to affective commitment, and I argue that secure attachment to God as an internal working model can function as a powerful "secure base" from which to engage in positive workplace commitment behaviors. The Baylor Religion Survey 2010 contains verified scales of divine attachment and affective commitment, offering a unique opportunity to explore this association of divine attachment styles and AC in a national random sample. Findings demonstrate significant associations between AC and two attachment styles. Secure attachment to God is positively associated to AC, while avoidant attachment to God is negatively associated. A relationship between anxious God attachment and AC is not supported.
