The article focuses on the study of the interaction of spiritual involvement, topical religious feelings, the specifics of religious motivation and subjective well-being among parishioners of the Church of Evangelical Christians-Baptists. The experimental data consisted of 80 respondents from the congregation of the churches of Evangelical Christians-Baptists with 40 men and 40 women involved. We have used a self-designed questionnaire to measure religious involvement, INSPIRIT test made by Jared Kass to measure the topicality of spiritual experiences, a religious motivation questionnaire constructed by Irena Stojković & Jovan Mirić to study motivation and Subjective Well-Being Scale method to measure subjunctive well-being. The mathematical analysis of the results included Pearson's correlation coefficient with bilateral rotation, Student's t-test was used to seek possible differences between subgroups, all the calculations were made in MC Excel and SPSS programmes. The study showed that the INSPIRIT test results have significant positive correlation with the data of the religious involvement questionnaire, r = 0.71 (P ≤ 0.01). The INSPIRIT test results also have positive correlation with the data of the Scale of Religion as the highest value of religious motivation test, r = 0.55 (P ≤ 0.01). The correlation analysis showed that Evangelical Christians’-Baptists’ spiritual involvement (questionnaire) and vividness of spiritual experiences (INSPIRIT) are highly interconnected, that is to say, persons who more frequently attend church recommended events and perform spiritual practices have more vivid subjunctive spiritual experience. A number of specific features of Baptists are discovered by the questionnaire on religious motivation.
