Christianity in Kazakhstan is the second most practiced religion after Islam. About one-third of the population of Kazakhstan identifies as Christian. The majority of Christian citizens are Russians, including Ukrainians and Belarusians, who belong to the Russian Orthodox Church. About 1.5 percent of the population is ethnically German, most of whom follow Roman Catholicism or Lutheranism. There are also many Presbyterians, Jehovah's Witnesses, Seventh-day Adventists, and Pentecostals.[1][2]

Methodists, Mennonites, and Mormons have also registered churches with the government.[1]

While about 30% of the population are Russian Orthodox and 2% is Protestant, there are more Protestant congregations, 93 "nontraditional" Protestant Christian churches registered with the Kazakh government from 2006 to 2007. There are 83 Roman Catholic churches in Kazakhstan.[1]

There are two Baptist organizations in Kazakhstan; the Council of Churches of Evangelical Christians and Baptists, with 1,000 members, and the Baptist Union of Kazakhstan, with 10,000 members. 198 churches affiliated with the Baptist Union registered with the government.[1]
