Christianity is the largest religion in the world, with 2.6 billion followers and 31% of the global population. Although Christianity has spread throughout the globe, its numbers are declining as more people are becoming unaffiliated with any religion due to secularization and globalization. There are a total of 41 countries that are majority Christian while Islam is second largest religion at 1.8 billion followers.
Number Of Christian Countries In The World
The Christian population in the world is divided into various denominations, including Catholicism and Protestantism.
The Christian population in the world is divided into various denominations, including Catholicism and Protestantism. The most popular denominations are Catholicism and Protestantism. The largest Christian denomination is the Catholic Church, which has an estimated 1.3 billion members worldwide. The second largest denomination is Protestantism, with more than 500 million followers worldwide.
The Orthodox Church also has a large following: According to Pew Research Center estimates from 2012 there were about 260 million Orthodox Christians living in countries around the world that year. However, this figure does not include Russians who may be nominally Orthodox but do not attend church regularly enough to be counted (Russians comprise roughly half of all Eastern European immigrants).
Islam is the second largest religion at 1.8 billion followers.
Islam is the second largest religion in the world. It has 1.8 billion followers, making up 23% of the world’s population. Islam is also the fastest-growing religion in the world, with conversions taking place at a rate of 2.9% per year since 1900 to 2010.
In contrast, Christianity is growing at a lower rate of 1% per year due to its much larger base population—2 billion Christians make up 32% of Earth’s inhabitants. Just over half (52%) of Muslims live in Asia followed by 25% in Africa and 18% in Europe; about 7 percent reside in North America and Oceania combined (1).
There are a total of 41 countries that are majority Christian.
There are a total of 41 countries that are majority Christian. This number is decreasing as the years go by and many countries become more secularized.
This list is not exhaustive, but does include most of the world’s largest Christian nations. The list was compiled based on statistics from 2016, so it may be slightly out-of-date if you’re reading this in 2020 or later—but since there haven’t been too many dramatic changes over the past few years, we think it should still provide a good general overview of where Christianity stands today (at least at the time this article was written).
The number of countries with at least a Christian majority is decreasing as the years go by.
The number of countries with at least a Christian majority is decreasing as the years go by. As a result, it’s more important than ever for Christians to be able to defend their faith against those who want to discredit it. The best way to do that is through prayer and reading the Bible, but there are other ways as well. You can join or start a small group that meets regularly or sign up for an online course on apologetics.

While approximately 31% of the world’s population is classified as Christian, only about 2% of the world’s landmass is Christian-majority.
While approximately 31% of the world’s population is classified as Christian, only about 2% of the world’s landmass is Christian-majority. In other words, Muslims are more likely to live in countries where Islam is the dominant religion.
While there are many countries that have a majority population of Christians, these countries may not be considered “Christian,” because their population does not practice their religion regularly or at all. Countries like China and Japan have large populations who identify as Christians but do not attend church services regularly.
The United States has the largest number of Christians in the world according to Pew Research Center, but only a quarter of American Christians attend church on weekly basis.
The Pew Research Center estimates that 78% of Americans are Christian. The second largest religious group in the U.S. is those who identify with a non-Christian faith, such as Islam or Judaism.
However, only 25% of American Christians attend church on a weekly basis according to Pew Research Center estimates. This means that the majority of American Christians do not practice their religion regularly.
Pew Research Center estimates that 1% of Americans identify as atheists and 3% identify as agnostic (meaning they believe there is no God).
Although many countries in Latin America have a Christian majority, it is believed that this number will decline in coming years due to disaffiliation among young people from their religions.
Although many countries in Latin America have a Christian majority, it is believed that this number will decline in coming years due to disaffiliation among young people from their religions. This can be attributed to the rise of secularism and atheism throughout the region.
However, despite this trend towards secularization, many countries in Latin America still maintain large numbers of Christians who attend church regularly. For example, as much as 70% of Paraguayans self-identify as Catholic and attend services weekly (or even more).
Christianity has spread throughout the world but numbers are declining
Christianity is a faith that has spread throughout the world, but numbers are declining. Christianity has 2.3 billion followers worldwide, but it is currently losing approximately 1 million converts to Islam each year. This is due in part to migration patterns and political unrest in some countries, as well as a decrease in fertility rates among Christians.
As of 2018, Christianity remains the most widely practiced religion on Earth with 2.3 billion followers (31%), followed by Islam with 1.8 billion (23%). Other religions include Hinduism with 1 billion adherents (15%), Buddhism with 500 million followers (7%) and Chinese folk religions with over 460 million practitioners (7%).
While Christianity is a major religion in most countries in the world, many people do not identify with any particular denomination or tradition. These individuals are often referred to as “unaffiliated” and make up some of the fastest-growing populations around the world. While there are still many countries where Christianity remains dominant, it appears that this trend will be reversed over time as more people turn away from organized religion due to personal reasons such as disillusionment or disappointment over social issues such as poverty and inequality which churches have failed address effectively enough
