Evangelical, Pentecostal churches spread in Angola

January 29, 2013

Large Protestant churches are blossoming in Angola, the historically Catholic nation that has been ruled by an erstwhile Marxist president since 1979.

“Recent churches like the Pentecostals have had most success because they tie spiritual development with personal prosperity,” said a Protestant pastor who teaches at a theological institute.

“People are looking for reasons to hope and evangelical churches offer new solutions with their dynamic sermons, joyful celebrations and obligation to contribute financially to develop the movement,” added Siona Casimiro, editor of a Catholic newspaper.
