In the Southern European country, evangelical churches are the religious minority that grows the most, nearly tripling the presence of Muslim worship places.
Almost 8,000 municipalities do not have an evangelical presence yet, says church planter Máximo Álvarez in an interview.
A study by the Observatory for Religious Pluralism found that almost half of respondents, all from religious minorities, were discriminated against at work because of their beliefs.
New official data show that evangelicals have multiplied eightfold in the last 20 years. The evangelical places of worship keep growing, there are over 4,200 throughout Spain.
There are 331 municipalities of more than 5,000 inhabitants with no evangelical church. Reaching them “continues to be one of the great shortcomings of the mission in Spain”.
There are 4,238 evangelical places of worship in the country. Evangelical Christians are the religious minority with the greatest presence in the country.
