Religion in the Central African Republic

Christians form 50 percent of the population, while 35 percent of the population maintain Indigenous beliefs. Islam is practiced by approximately 15 percent of the country's population.[26]

There are many missionary groups operating in the country, including Lutherans, Baptists, Catholics, Grace Brethren, and Jehovah's Witnesses. While these missionaries are predominantly from the United States, France, Italy, and Spain, many are also from Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and other African countries. Many missionaries left the country due to fighting between rebel and government forces in 2002 and 2003. Many have now returned to the country and resumed their activities
