The Republic of Cameroon is a unitary republic of Central and Western Africa. It borders Nigeria to the west; Chad to the northeast; the Central African Republic to the east; and Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, and the Republic of the Congo to the south (see map below). Cameroon’s coastline lies on part of the Gulf of Guinea and the Atlantic Ocean. The country is called “Africa in miniature” for its geological and cultural diversity. Natural features include beaches, deserts, mountains, rainforests, and savannas. The highest point is Mount Cameroon (13,435 feet) in the southwest, and the largest cities are Douala, Yaoundé and Garoua. Cameroon is home to an estimated 250 distinct ethnic and linguistic groups. English and French are the official languages. The assessed 2020 population is 26,812,635. Cameroon has a young population with a median age of 18.7 years and 41.25% of the population are 14 and under.
The Full Gospel Mission in Cameroon is experiencing rapid growth. Evangelism and church planting continue to be the passion and desire of the church’s leaders, pastors, and congregations. Our conviction is that as we partner with the national church in building a strong church through Bible School training and Tabernacle Evangelism, the results will touch not only Cameroon, the continent of Africa, but also the ends of the earth.
