From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Major religious groups in the Republic of the Marshall Islands include the United Church of Christ (formerly Congregational), with 54.8 percent of the population; the Assemblies of God, 25.8 percent; and the Roman Catholic Church, 8.4 percent.[1] Also represented are Bukot Non Jesus (also known as Assembly of God Part Two), 2.8 percent; The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons), 2.1 percent; Seventh-day Adventists, 0.9 percent; Full Gospel, 0.7 percent; and the Baha'i Faith, 0.6 percent.[1] Persons without any religious affiliation account for 1.5 percent of the population.[1] Islam and the Jehovah's Witnesses were each believed to have a few hundred practitioners.[1]

Foreign missionaries are present and operate freely.[1] Religious schools are operated by the Roman Catholic Church, United Church of Christ, Assemblies of God, Seventh-day Adventist Church, Bukot Non Jesus, and the Baptist Church.[1]

The Constitution provides for freedom of religion, and the Government generally respects this right in practice.[1] In 2007, the US government received no reports of societal abuses or discrimination based on religious belief or practice.[1]
