GOD has opened doors for Christ to the World Ministries (CTTW) to partner with Far East Broadcasting (FEBC) in the Ukraine.
Since 2005, CTTW has produced and broadcast the drama stories based upon the scriptures to a broad and diverse listening audience.
Religion in Ukraine went through a series of phases, but one notably in the times of the Soviet Union. Such was the rule of the official oppressive communist regime, when Christians were persecuted and only a small fraction of people officially were church goers.
The 2006 Razumkov Centre survey indicates:
- 14.9 percent of believers identify themselves with the Ukrainian Orthodox Church - Kiev Patriarchate;
- 10.9 percent are adherents of Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchate) (which has the largest number of churches in Ukraine and claims up to 75% of the Ukrainian population);
- 5.3 percent belonged to the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church (sometimes referred to as the Uniate, Byzantine, or Eastern Rite Church);
- 1.0 percent belonged to the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church;
- 0.6 percent belonged to the Roman Catholic Church;
- 0.9 percent identified themselves as Protestants (Pentecostal, Baptist, Lutheran, Mennonites, Adventists);
- 0.1 percent follow Jewish religious practices;
- 3.2 percent said they belonged to "other denominations".
62.5 percent stated they are not religious or did not clearly identified their church allegiance (many Orthodox Ukrainians do not clearly self-identify with a particular denomination and, sometimes, are even unaware of the affiliation of the church they attend as well as of the controversy itself, which indicates the impossibility to use
the survey numbers as an indicator of a relative strength of the church).
There is a great potential to reach the people with the life saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
