  • Freedom of all religions is practiced, and the opportunity to minister as believers adds to the many challenges Zambia faces.  However, it means an open door for Christian work.
  • The Constitution provides for freedom of religion, and the Government generally respected this right in practice. A 1996 amendment to the Constitution declared Christianity to be the official religion of the country while upholding the right of every person to enjoy that person's freedom of conscience or religion.
