  • North Ethiopia was one of the first Christian nations – from the 4th century.  The Ethiopian Orthodox Church became the State Church from 1270 until the 1974 revolution. The government seeks to deal even-handedly with the Ethiopian Orthodox Church and the increasingly active and growing Muslim minority.
  • Sustained and remarkable growth of evangelical numbers over the years is praiseworthy. Since the deposition of Haile Selassie in 1974, evangelicals have grown from 5% to 20%, a near-tenfold increase. The greatest growth has been in the last 20 years, and there are many signs that growth will continue, since outward vision and courageous evangelism continue.
