Christianity By country

Christianity By country

The 7th century Khor Virap monastery in the shadow of Mount AraratArmenia was the first state to adopt Christianity as anofficial religion at AD 301.[24][25][26][27]

Note: Population statistics by religious affiliations are based upon statistical science and are subject to observational error (technically referred to as estimates). Likewise,partisans may seek to bias the estimates. The proportion of Christians is based on the proportion of the population in each country who are members of a Christian denomination or who identify themselves as Christian. It says nothing about the proportion of such as believe in God and are regularly in the church. People who mixChristianity with tribal religions are defined in this article as Christians. Most of the percentage of Christian population of each country was taken from the US State Department‘s International Religious Freedom Reportthe CIA World FactbookJoshua ProjectOpen doorsPew Forum and Adherents.com.
