Portugal is a predominantly Catholic country. For a long time, the Catholic Church enjoyed the privilege of concordat between the Vatican and the Portuguese state. The small Presbyterian, Methodist, and Anglican churches grew out of 19th century missionary work, and form together the Council of Christian Churches. The largest independent churches are the controversial Universal Church of the Kingdom of God, which has come from Brazil, and the Mana Church from South Africa. The Jehovah's Witnesses form also a sizeable and growing group. The Assemblies of God (Pentecostal) and Evangelical churches like the Baptists, Seventh-day Adventists, and Brethren are also present. The Evangelical Alliance of Portugal is affiliated with the WEA.
