(Christian Post) Venezuela’s Ministry of Interior and Justice announced last week that it will take action to accelerate the process of legalizing all evangelical churches in the country.

According to Mundo Cristiano, a Hispanic news outlet, most Protestant churches in the South American nation are not registered with the government. However, officials have pledged to help them become legally recognized as religious institutions after various churches expressed their support for federal programs such as Venezuela’s national voluntary disarmament plan.
