This study attempts to investigate religious beliefs and identity formation as a predictor of life satisfaction. Religion experiences, culture, and choices greatly influence how we practice our faith. Religion and identity are a two-way street. A strong sense of identity is linked to feeling satisfied with your life. The research will delve into potential mechanisms explaining these connections, such as the provision of social support networks, meaning-making frameworks, and sources of comfort and purpose. A sample of 132 students aged between 18-25 years, volunteered to participate in the study. The Religiousness Measure, Aspects of Identity Questionnaire (AIQ-1V), and Satisfaction with Life Scale (SWLS) were the tools used to measure religious beliefs, identity formation and life satisfaction respectively. The result showed a positive significant correlation between religious beliefs and life satisfaction (r=0.176; p< 0.05 level), a positive significant correlation between religious beliefs and identity formation (r=0.276; p< 0.01 level), in life satisfaction and identity formation correlation (r=0.164; p>0.05).
