      Christianity in Ghana has all through the history overshadowed other forms of religion. Although more than half of the Ghanaian citizens are Christians which makes it a Christian nation (with the denominations including Catholics, Methodists, Anglicans, Presbyterians, Lutherans, Seventh-Day Adventists, Pentecostals, Baptists etc), many know too.   Ghana’s 24 million people comprise six major ethnic groups that break into more than 60 smaller ones. The six larger groups are the Akan (Ashanti and Fanti), the Ewe, the Ga-Adangbe, the Mole-Dagbani, the Guan and the Gruma. Like most other African nations, Ghana has rich, traditional cultures that differ from one ethnic group to another.
