List Of Christian Countries In The World

List Of Christian Countries In The World


A list of countries that are considered Christian by the World Christian Database, based on their population’s religion.

The Philippines

The Philippines is a Christian country. It has an estimated population of more than 90 million people and is the largest Christian nation in Asia. More than 80% of the population is Roman Catholic, while other Christians comprise various Protestant denominations. The Philippines has a secular state, although most Filipinos are religious or spiritual.


  • Russia is not an Islamic country. While it has a large Muslim population, the majority of Russians are Christians of various denominations. The largest denomination is the Russian Orthodox Church, which has over 100 million followers worldwide and nearly 30 million followers in Russia alone.
  • Although Christianity was once outlawed under communist rule, it became legal again after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. Today Russia remains one of the least secularized countries in Europe with over 75% of its citizens identifying as Orthodox Christians.


Armenia is a unitary, multi-party, democratic nation-state with an ancient cultural heritage. Christianity was adopted as a state religion in 301 A.D. Armenia is the world’s oldest country to adopt Christianity as its official religion.

Armenia is home to many Christian churches that are among the world’s oldest patrimonies and relics including: Zvartnots Cathedral (6th century), Saint Gregory of Narek Monastery (8th century) and Etchmiadzin Cathedral (10th century).


[Mexico]( is divided between Roman Catholicism (over 80%) and Evangelical Protestantism (15%). While these two religions have roughly the same percentage of members, Mexico has the second-largest Roman Catholic population in the world after Brazil, with about 92 million Catholics out of a total population of 130 million people — or almost three quarters.

About 80% of all Mexicans are at least nominally Catholic.[1] This includes those who may be atheists or agnostics but still identify themselves as Christian because they were baptised into that faith when they were born; such people can also be found in other countries with large Catholic populations such as Spain and Poland as well as predominantly Protestant ones such as Iceland and Hungary.[2][3]

In addition to this large majority there are also many indigenous groups who practice an animist form of their own beliefs which integrate elements from both Catholicism and pre-conquest beliefs,[4][5] while others belong to evangelical Protestant denominations such as [Assemblies of God]( which arrived after independence in 1821.[6].



Brazil is not a Christian country. It is a secular state, although it has been overwhelmingly Christian for centuries. However, Christianity in Brazil has undergone great changes over the past few decades and now sits at an interesting place in its history as a nation. The country is the largest in South America and has a population of about 210 million people. It’s also the largest Lusophone country in the world—it shares some linguistic similarities with Portugal (Portugal was its former colonial master). Given that Brazil’s population makes up almost half of all Portuguese speakers worldwide, it seems fitting that Brazil would be considered this way!

Brazil also happens to be home to more Catholics than any other nation on earth—the majority of which are Roman Catholics (about 66% according to latest estimates). This makes sense since they’re such a big part of Brazilian culture; many people even link their food traditions back to Catholicism because so many foods have religious meaning attached them like rosaries made out cheese!

United States of America

The United States of America has a large number of Christian believers. The USA is a secular country and is not much like the other countries on this list. This means that it does not have any official religion and everyone can practice their own religion freely. However, it still has a high number of Christians and they account for over 70% of its population.

The USA is also known as “The Melting Pot” because it accepts people from all faiths and backgrounds into its borders looking for better opportunities than where they came from. It was founded by immigrants in search of freedom who wanted to escape persecution at home because they were different in some way, whether that be their race or religion or whatever else may have been different about them back home.

Nigeria is the most populous Christian nation in Africa. In fact, it has the third largest population of any country in the world after China and India. The Nigerian constitution recognizes Christianity as the religion of the majority of Nigerians and protects its citizens’ right to practice their faith without interference from the government.

Christianity was first introduced to Nigeria by British missionaries during colonization, but its presence was minimal until western education spread throughout Nigeria during colonial times. Today, more than half of all Christians live in sub-Saharan Africa and almost half of those reside in Nigeria (source).


Ethiopia is the second-most populous country in sub-Saharan Africa, with approximately 100 million inhabitants. It’s also the oldest independent country in Africa and is a major source of Christianity for the continent. Ethiopia has been an economic powerhouse since its founding in 1270 BCE, when King Menelik I united all of present-day Ethiopia under one rule after defeating an army led by Egyptian pharaoh Ramesses II at Kadesh.

Ethiopia was also home to some of Islam’s earliest converts as well; Ethiopia was visited by Muhammad himself during his Hijra (migration) from Mecca to Medina. The first Islamic settlement in Africa was established here, making it the oldest Muslim community on earth at Negash.


Ukraine is a country in Eastern Europe. The population of Ukraine is 42 million people, of which the majority are Christians.

Ukraine is the only country in Europe where the majority of population are Christian (more than 50%). Ukrainians are mostly Eastern Orthodox, but there are also Greek Catholics, Roman Catholics and Protestants.

The largest denomination in Ukraine is Eastern Orthodoxy with 33% (12 million people), followed by Russian Orthodoxy with 12% (4 million), Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church with 6% (2 million) and Roman Catholic Church with 5%.

Almost all of the Christians in Eritrea belong to one of three churches: the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, Roman Catholic Church and Evangelical (Protestant) faiths. Tigrinya-speaking Christians live predominantly in the highlands while Afar-speaking Christians reside along the Red Sea coast. The majority of them are monophysites who see Jesus as “one nature” with God (theological doctrine).

The country has a multilingual society where most people speak more than one language, usually their own native tongue and Tigrinya or Arabic languages that are widely spoken across Eritrea and other neighboring countries like Sudan or Ethiopia

There are high numbers of Christian believers in many countries.

There are many countries with high numbers of Christian believers in the world. Many of these countries have a long history of Christianity, and others were converted by missionaries from other parts of Europe or from North America.

  • In Africa, Nigeria has over 50% Christians.
  • The majority (more than 70%) of people living in South Korea are Christians.
  • Indonesia has nearly 20% more people who identify as Muslim than those who identify as Christian; however, due to their population size (approximately 250 million), there are still more Christians overall than Muslims here.


In conclusion, we can say that Christianity is one of the world’s largest religions with more than 2.1 billion adherents. It is also the most widely practiced religion in the US by more than 75% of Americans, who have helped make America a Christian nation according to the Pew Research Center. The Bible states that there will be a great falling away from faith in end times but those who hold firm until Jesus returns are promised eternal life with Him forevermore (Romans 6:23). This is what motivates me every day to continue studying God’s Word and sharing it with others to help them learn about His amazing love for us all!
