The Presbyterian Church in Taiwan (PCT)

Interdenominational and multi-faith

In the period since World War II Taiwan has been inundated with every variety of Christian missions and sects. Among the Protestant churches the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan remains very much the largest denomination. About 70% of the indigenous tribal people are professing Christians. (This figure includes Roman Catholics and other Protestant churches; about 30% of indigenous people are Presbyterian). Evangelism has been slower among the Han people - about 3.5% are Christian, including about l% Presbyterian.

The majority of the populace adheres to the practice of folk religion, Taoism and in particular Buddhism some groups of which in recent years have become very social active.
