Religion in Angola
Angola is a majority Christian country. There are about 1000 religious communities in the country.Roman Catholics constitute about half of the population. Other Christian denominations include Baptists, Methodists, Congregationalists, Lutherans, Reformed Churches and Adventists, as well as non-Protestant groups such as the Jehovah's Witnesses − all these denominations making up about a quarter of the population. Since independence, numerous Pentecostal, Evangelical and other communities have sprung up, the most important being the Igreja Universal do Reino de Deus, of Brazilian origin. Two syncretic "African Christian" churches exist, the Kimbanguists who have their origin in what is at present the Democratic Republic of Congo, and the locally evolved Tokoists. There is also a small Muslim minority, consisting of Sunnite immigrants from a diversity of African and other countries, who do not form a community. Few Angolans − mostly in remote rural societies − profess today traditional African religions, but traditional beliefs subsist among a substantial part of those who have become Christians.
