  • There has been freedom of religion.  The people of Lesotho have been largely Christian for generations but traditionalism and nominalism are widespread both in the Catholic Church and the Lesotho Evangelical Church.  The rapid increase in the number of newer churches with evangelistic zeal has challenged the mainline Churches to become more spiritually vital and relevant.  A nation-wide prayer movement has brought a new dynamism to the witness of believers, but this vision needs to be maintained.
  • The JESUS film is being widely used in English and Sotho and is effective in
    planting new churches.  The newer, evangelical, Pentecostal and charismatic denominations and agencies have seen growth.  The mainline, Catholic and
    Pentecostal churches in Lesotho have been under local leadership for many
    years, but a new level of leadership is emerging in the charismatic churches.
