The Philippines is a predominantly Catholic country, with a significant number of Protestant denominations and a growing Muslim population. Many religious groups hold significant assets, which can include land, buildings, and businesses. These assets are used to fund the church’s activities, such as social services, education, and missionary work.

  • Donations from members
  • Tithes and offerings
