11 Countries with Highest Christian Population

As Christianity has grown all over the world, we would like to share the 11 countries with highest Christian population. Christianity is a religion based on teachings and practices of Jesus of Nazareth. According to Paul Johnson in his book A History of Christianity, the first political act in the history of Christianity happened when Paul from Tarsus traveled south from Antioch to Jerusalem. During his travel, he met the surviving believers of Jesus of Nazareth. This Apostolic Conference, or the so-called Council of Jerusalem, is the starting point of Christianity.
