There are over 190 countries in the world. Christianity is the most dominated religion in the world with over 30% of the world's population. Islam follows with over 25% of the world's population.
Despite this large number of Christians in the world, there is one country in the world without a single church. A church is place where Christians meet to worship God.
Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world without a church. The country consist of the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. The country has a land area of approximately 2, 150,000km2. Saudi Arabia geographically is the largest sovereign states in West Asia and it is also the second largest in the Arab world.
As at now, there is no church building in the country. However, there are over one million Christians in the country. Saudi Arabia is a free country which accepts all kinds of religions in their country. Each religion is free to worship their God at home. For this reason, Christians are allowed to worship God in their various homes but not to build a church.
Saudi Arabia have their beliefs in Prophet Muhammad, as Christians have their beliefs in Jesus Chris Of Nazareth, they have Mecca as their place of worship, and Muslims from all parts of the world meet there to worship Allah during their Hajj trip.
This makes Saudi Arabia an Islamic state and a country without a church.
