Eric Michel Ministry Of America
The United States of America is a federal republic
composed of 50 states, a federal district, five major
self-governing territories, and various possessions.
Forty-eight of the fifty states and the federal district
are contiguous and located in North America between
Canada and Mexico. The state of Alaska is in the
northwest corner of North America, bordered by
Canada to the east and across the Bering Strait from
Russia to the west. The state of Hawaii is an
archipelago in the mid-Pacific Ocean. The U S
territories are scattered about the Pacific Ocean and
the Caribbean Sea and encompass nine time zones.
The extremely diverse geography, climate and wildlife
of the United States make it one of the world's 17
At 3.8 million square miles (9.8 million km2) and with
over 324 million people, the United States is the world's
third- or fourth-largest country by total area, third
-largest by land area, and the third-most populous.
It is one of the world's most ethnically diverse and
multicultural nations, and is home to the world's largest
immigrant population. The capital is Washington, D.C.,
and the largest city is New York City; nine other major
metropolitan areas, each with at least 4.5 million
inhabitants, are Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas,
Houston, Philadelphia, Miami, Atlanta, Boston, and
The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees the free exercise of religion and forbids Congress from passing
laws respecting its establishment. Christianity is by far the most common religion practiced in the U.S., but other religions
are followed, too. In a 2013 survey, 56% of Americans said that religion played a "very important role in their lives", a far
higher figure than that of any other wealthy nation. In a 2009 Gallup poll, 42% of Americans said that they attended church
weekly or almost weekly; the figures ranged from a low of 23% in Vermont to a high of 63% in Mississippi.
As with other Western countries, the U.S. is becoming less religious. Irreligion is growing rapidly among Americans under 30.
Polls show that overall American confidence in organized religion has been declining since the mid to late 1980s, and that
younger Americans in particular are becoming increasingly irreligious. According to a 2012 study, Protestant share of U S
population dropped to 48%, thus ending its status as religious category of the majority for the first time. Americans with no
religion have 1.7 children compared to 2.2 among Christians. The unaffiliated are less likely to get married with 37% marrying
compared to 52% of Christians.
According to a 2014 survey, 70.6% of adults identified themselves as Christian, Protestant denominations accounted for
46.5%, while Roman Catholicism, at 20.8%, was the largest individual denomination. The total reporting non-Christian
religions in 2014 was 5.9%. Other religions include Judaism (1.9%), Islam (0.9%), Buddhism (0.7%), Hinduism (0.7%).
The survey also reported that 22.8% of Americans described themselves as agnostic, atheist or simply having no religion,
up from 8.2% in 1990. There are also Unitarian Universalist, Baha'i, Sikh, Jain, Shinto, Confucian, Taoist, Druid, Native
American, Wiccan, humanist and deist communities.
Protestantism is the largest Christian religious grouping in the United States. Baptists collectively form the largest branch of
Protestantism, and the Southern Baptist Convention is the largest individual Protestant denomination. About 26% of Americans
identify as Evangelical Protestants, while 15% are Mainline and 7% belong to a traditionally Black church. Roman Catholicism
in the United States has its origin in the Spanish and French colonization of the Americas, and later grew because of Irish, Italian,
Polish, German and Hispanic immigration. Rhode Island has the highest percentage of Catholics with 40 percent of the total
population. Lutheranism in the U.S. has its origin in immigration from Northern Europe and Germany. North and South Dakota
are the only states in which a plurality of the population is Lutheran. Presbyterianism was introduced in North America by
Scottish and Ulster Scots immigrants. Although it has spread across the United States, it is heavily concentrated on the
East Coast. Dutch Reformed congregations were founded first in New Amsterdam (New York City) before spreading westward.
Utah is the only state where Mormonism is the religion of the majority of the population. The Mormon Corridor also extends to
parts of Idaho, Nevada and Wyoming.
The Bible Belt is an informal term for a region in the Southern United States in which socially conservative Evangelical
Protestantism is a significant part of the culture and Christian church attendance across the denominations is generally
higher than the nation's average. By contrast, religion plays the least important role in New England and in the
Western United States.
