Religion in the Bahamas reflects the country's diversity. Since the English colonization, most Bahamians adhere to diverse Protestant denominations with Anglicanism, Baptist churches, Pentecostalism, Adventism and Methodism being at the forefront.
Statistically speaking, Protestant denominations including Baptists (35 percent), Anglicans (15 percent), Pentecostals (8 percent), Church of God (Cleveland, Tennessee) (5 percent), Seventh-day Adventists (5 percent), and Methodists (4 percent). Although many unaffiliated Protestant congregations are almost exclusively black, most mainstream churches are integrated racially. There are significant Roman Catholic (14 percent) and Greek Orthodox populations. Smaller Jewish, Baha'i, Jehovah's Witness and Muslim communities also are active. A small number of Bahamians and Haitians, particularly those living in the Family Islands, practice Obeah, a form of African shamanism. A small number of citizens identify themselves as Rastafarians. Some members of the small resident Guyanese and Indian populations practice Hinduism and other South Asian religions.
