This series is based on the Radical Experiment by David Platt. You can find more information about my decision to join here.

  • Most of the population worships through the Armenian Church; less than 5% are Evangelical Christians.
  • Armenia's constitution allows for religious freedom, but some restrictions are placed on the religious minorities.
Prayer: Evangelical Christians may be permitted more religious freedom.
  • 66% of the population is Roman Catholic, 4.2% are Muslims, 3.9% are Protestants, 2.2% Eastern Orthodox, and others less than 1%.
  • The government generally respects religious freedom, but rates of suicide, abortion, and alcoholism are continually increasing. 
Prayer: Christian believers may have an impact on those suffering through despair.

  • 96% of the population is Muslim.
  • Must be registered to practice religion, but authorities often deny registration to religious minorities, including Baptists and several non-denominational Protestant groups.
  • Those groups not registered face accusations of worshiping illegally and are arrested.
Prayer: Christians may have a hedge of safety around them as they proclaim the gospel and worship together.
