Though more than 74% of the country’s people identify themselves as Roman Catholic and another 16% identify themselves as Christian, Brazil is a nation struggling with nominalism and Spiritism.
Catholicism was introduced to Brazil when the European settlers arrived with the aim of ‘civilising’ the local native people.
The number of evangelical believers in Brazil continues to grow and it has become a missionary-sending nation.
