Top 10 Christian Countries In The World
In this post, we’ll be exploring the top 10 Christian countries in the world.
The United States is the most religious country in the world. More than 70% of its population identifies as Christian, and it has more than 300,000 churches. The most popular denominations are Baptists and Catholics.
Brazil, the world’s largest Catholic country, has over 170 million Christians. The country is divided into three main groups of Christianity: Catholics, Protestants and Spiritists. The majority of Brazilians are Roman Catholics (about 60%), followed by Protestants (22%) and Spiritists (10%).
In recent years there has been a growing number of people identifying themselves as atheists or agnostics in Brazil. In 2012 only 6% of people claimed to be atheists; however, in 2014 that figure increased to 9%. In 2016 it rose again to 12%.
With a population of 122 million people and an estimated 88% of them identifying as Christian, Mexico is one of the most religious countries in the world. The majority of Christians are Roman Catholic, but there are also Protestants and other denominations.
Mexico was one of the first countries to be colonized by Spaniards who brought Catholicism with them. Almost all Mexicans live in cities or towns that were established during this time period and even today many people go to church every Sunday (or any day they can). Churches are everywhere in Mexico and hold special cultural significance for many residents. Today you can find dozens upon dozens of churches just about anywhere you go!
One interesting fact about Mexico is that it has three major religions: Roman Catholicism, Protestantism, Judaism…and none other than Paganism! Yes—you read that right: “paganism” is alive and well here in this beautiful country where nature still reigns supreme despite all our modern conveniences…and yes—we’re talking about real sorcery here!
The Philippines is the only Christian country in Asia and the second most populated Christian country in the world, behind only its fellow Southeast Asian neighbor Indonesia. The country also has the largest Catholic population of any nation on Earth at 88%, which makes it an ideal destination for Catholics looking to explore their faith further.
The majority of Russians identify as Orthodox Christians, mostly Eastern Orthodoxy. The rest are either atheist or non-religious. Despite this, those who identify as Orthodox Christians tend to be more religious than those in other Orthodox countries such as Bulgaria and Romania.
Russia has a long history of being ruled by an autocratic government that suppressed religious freedom. However, it has also had periods where freedom of religion was encouraged—such as during the reign of Catherine II (1729–1796). Today, Russian laws are less restrictive than their Soviet counterparts were and allow for a greater degree of religious freedom for all citizens except Muslims in some regions due to high ethnic tensions with Chechnya and Dagestan on Russia’s southern border; however, these restrictions may soon change after Vladimir Putin’s reelection earlier this year
Nigeria is a country that has the largest population of Christians in Africa. The total number of Christians in Nigeria is around 160 million, which is more than any other country can boast. In fact, it’s more than half of all the Christian populations in all countries combined.
Nigerians are well known for being religious people with over 80% of the population being Christians themselves! This means that there are about 64 million Protestants and around 96 million Catholics living there as well.
The Christian population in Nigeria is made up of both Protestants and Catholics
China has a Christian population of 66,540,000. Christianity was introduced to China by Nestorian Christians in 635 AD, but it didn’t become widespread until the arrival of Jesuit missionaries in the 16th century. The number of Chinese Christians has grown rapidly since then—just over half (52%) of all Chinese people are now Christian.
The largest atheist population in the world is also found within China: according to a Pew Research Center study from 2015, about 50% of Chinese people do not identify with any religion or faith. This is much higher than other countries on this list—only 30% of Americans were atheists three years ago!
Colombia is a country located in South America. Colombia’s economy is largely dependent on its natural resources, with the largest export being coffee. Colombia produces over half of the world’s supply of coffee beans and it has been called “the cradle of Colombian industry” by Forbes magazine.
Colombia also produces other agricultural products like bananas, sugar cane and cocoa beans. Colombia also has extensive reserves of petroleum and coal as well as large quantities of gold, silver and platinum deposits that support its mining industry which accounts for about one-fifth of GDP (gross domestic product).
South Africa’s ethnic makeup is a complex one, with over 50% of the population identifying as black African and more than 25% as white. There are also significant numbers of people who identify themselves as coloured and Indian/Asian. South Africa is a very diverse country, but it’s also one that has seen great racial tension in recent decades. In this context, Christianity has served an important role in bringing together different groups of people—especially since there were few other shared traditions across all ethnicities until recently.
Christianity was introduced to South Africa by Europeans in 1652 when Dutch settlers established a colony on land that we now know as Cape Town today; this colony mainly consisted of farmers who would grow crops like wheat and maize (corn). The first church was built not long after this first settlement was established – though it wasn’t completed until 1661!
Argentina has a population of over 45 million people, with only 1% being non-Christian. The main religion in Argentina is Roman Catholicism, followed by other Christian denominations including evangelical and Pentecostal churches. There are about 43,000 Muslims in Argentina. There are also small Jewish communities (around 2,000) who belong to the Sephardic tradition of Judaism; they immigrated from Spain and Portugal during colonial times and continue to speak Ladino as their primary language.
These are the top Christian countries in the world.

Now, it is important to remember that Christianity is not a monolithic religion. There are many different denominations, which vary in their beliefs and practices. However, all of them share common teachings about Jesus Christ as the Son of God and the savior of mankind. While we have looked at some statistics here today, we should be careful not to define Christianity by numbers alone. But these numbers do give us insight into what countries are most influenced by Christian beliefs around the world!
