“Christianity” (much of which is highly influenced by the prosperity gospel and syncretized with traditional African beliefs and magic) is most dominant In the southern part of the country and Islam is most dominant in the north and more urban areas.  

A fun fact but also a tool for spreading the gospel, Ghana has a higher percentage of cell phones per citizen than the USA.  The capital city Accra, has a population of 1.9 million and Kumasi has a population of 1.4 million. The two most spoken indigenous languages are the Twi language of the Ashanti people and the Dagbani language of the Dagomba people.  Over half of the population is said to be able to speak English, in fact the national anthem is in English.  In the final analysis, Ghana has many languages and cities that are in great need of the gospel and Bible believing churches.
