Top 10 Evangelical Cities In America

The American Values Atlas project has determined the metro areas with the largest percentage of Evangelical Christians in America.

The Public Religion Research Institute’s American Values Atlas (AVA) is an interactive map that explores various religious, demographic, and cultural trends in the United States. Each year they conduct 50,000 phone interviews and make the data available via the AVA. Religious affiliation can be viewed by religions tradition or denomination and sorted by region, metro area, and state. In addition to different types of Christianity, information can be viewed on smaller U.S. religious traditions such as Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism.

Below are the top cities with the greatest percentage of white Evangelical Christians.
