Title: Liechtenstein

Tier: 1

Type: country

Liechtenstein is a constitutional principality, and has some ties with Switzerland. The Prince’s family have always been Catholic, as are the native citizens, though most do not actively practise their faith. The numbers of Muslims and non-religious people grow. British, Norwegian, and Swiss believers started the only evangelical fellowship in 1985. Some of the extended royal family have connections with the Catholic charismatic renewal movement, and profess personal faith in Christ.
