The Only Country In The World Without A Church

Christians always worship in churches while their counterparts Muslims always pray in mosques. Christians are mainly divided into two major groups the protestants and the Catholics. The latter can worship in any Catholic church because the program is the same globally, while the protestants worship in different churches. Despite having so many Christians worldwide, there is only one country without a single church despite having almost 2 million Christians.

Although Saudi Arabia has an estimated 1.8 million Christians, the kingdom does not have a single church. Christians who live or work in Saudi Arabia face constant harassment from Muslims and the government. Many Christians still migrate to Saudi Arabia to pursue work and a better life despite the country's anti-Christian laws and practices. This country is devoid of religious institutions.

Prophet Muhammad is the only figure in whom Saudi Arabian Muslims lay their faith, and they consider Mecca to be the holiest city on the planet because it is where Muhammad was born. They did so as the primary justification behind the construction of at least two Meccas in each district. Around one million people adhere to the Roman Catholic faith in this Arabian state, and they do not practice discrimination.

Christians are always allowed to work and live in Saudi Arabia but are not entitled to worship their God publicly. This means that Christians living in Saudi Arabia always worship their God privately.
