Africa Mission
Church planting and growth | Supporting

church communities in Malawi and Mozambique
JAM works with the Free Baptist Church of South Africa in their mission to Africa. There’s currently 10 Free Baptist Churches in Malawi and another 7 in Mozambique. We visit these churches and communities annually and supply them with the necessary tools and training to grow their churches and better their communities. We also plant new churches, help with material to build their buildings and supply the necessary material to repair the old ones.

Mozambique
Mozambique
According to the most recent national census, more than half of Mozambicans are Christian, though a significant Muslim presence is also felt.

The South African nation Mozambique gives its people full rights to practice any religion of their choice. However, no official religious holidays are there, but it allows its people to take leave on their respective religious days of observance. In this respect, it would be interesting to explore the religious beliefs in Mozambique.

Roman Catholic Christianity 28.4%, Atheist or Agnostic 18.7%, Islam (predominately Sunni) 17.9%, Zionist Protestant Christianity15.5%, Evangelical Protestant Christianity 10.9%, Other Beliefs 7.3%, Anglican Protestant Christianity 1.3%.
