The present study tended to investigate the reliability (internal consistency, test-retest and split-half reliability), convergent validity and gender differences in Santa Clara's power of religious faith questionnaire (Plante&Boccaccini 1997) in a population of Iranian students. Participants included 300 students from Tehran University (131female and 169 male). All participants were asked to fill out the 10-article Santa Clara's power of religious faith questionnaire as well as life satisfaction scales, spiritual beliefs and contribution scale, spiritual meaning scale, religious coping and also religious contribution scales. To analyze the data, exploratory and confirmatory factors, and t-test for independent groups and also correlation analysis with Bonferroni correction were applied. In general, the obtained results reveal that this scale enjoys one-factor structure and satisfying reliability and validity among Iranian students.
