Religion/Philosophy in the Philippines


Roman Catholics comprise 84% of the Philippine population with other Christian denominations (such as Protestants) making up only 10%.  

The first outside religion introduced to the Philippines is Islam which came with the expansion of Arab commercial ventures in the 14th century. The 16th century brought Christianity to the Philippines by Ferdinand Magellan in 1521.  Protestantism was brought with the American soldiers in 1899 by the Presbyterian and Methodist missionaries that came with them.

 

Also included in the count are the Aglipayans, the Philippine Independent Church founded in 1902, and the Iglesia Ni Kristo (Church of Christ) which was founded in 1914.  Landmarks in most Philippine major cities, the churches for the Iglesia Ni Kristo have unique architecture which makes them stand out.  

About 4% of the population are Muslims and they are mainly located in the southern areas of the Philippines.
