Brazil is now over 26% Evangelical

Evangelicalism

The largest concentration of Evangelicals can be found in the United States, with 28.9% of population or 91.76 million, less than a quarter of the world figure. The next most populous is Brazil with 26.3% or 51.33 million.

According to the 2000 Census, 15.4% of the Brazilian population was Protestant. A recent research conducted by the Datafolha institute shows that 25% of Brazilians are Protestants, of which 19% are followers of Pentecostal denominations. The 2010 Census found out that 22.2% were Protestant at that date.

Look at those figures. Brazil is exploding with an growing Evangelical Revival. Roughly 2 million converts a year.

Meanwhile, the official Brazilian Census of 2010 lists only 35,167 Muslims (Click Here)

What this means is that, while Muslims are there in Brazil and have a media presence, their numbers are miniscule. In reality, given the trends, it is impossible to doubt that many are converting to Evangelicalism.

What this means in fact is that if 1 million Palestinians were paid to move to Brazil, over time – and probably very quickly – they would convert to an Evangelical sect.
