Are American Christians Committed to the Church?

In my last post, "Growing On Your Own," my good friend, Kevin, raised an interesting point with this comment:
"Statistically, many Americans already believe they don't need the church in order to be spiritually growing people. And that's the problem. The church doesn't fit into the growth plan of most people who want to be spiritual."
I'd like to know what you think about this. Do you want to be spiritual? And if so, does the church fit into this desire?

Do you think "most" people who want to be spiritual think they can accomplish this without the church? And a bigger question is, "Can this be accomplished without the church?"

Look forward to hearing what you think about this issue! And gentlemen, (or ladies), don't hold back!

And for those who live outside the US, I'm curious about how committed you see the Christians in your country are toward the church?
