According to the International Religious Freedom Report 2004 (http://www.state.gov/g/drl/rls/irf/2004/35530.htm), Chile has a diversity of religions, although the traditional Catholic religion still maintains a strong majority.  The following information will show you what Chileans over the age of 14 are believing:

Catholic – almost 11 million

Pentecostal/Charismatics – over 1.5 million

Atheist or agnostic – 1 million 

Protestant churches – 170,000 

Jehovah’s Witness – 120,000

Mormons – 103,000

Jews – 15,000

Orthodox Christians – 7,000

The harvest is immense and the laborers are few!
