The predominant religion is Roman Catholic, but there is a scattering of other Christian faiths. Indigenous Peruvians, however, have blended Catholicism and their traditional beliefs. An example is the near synonymous association of Pacha Mama (Mother Earth) and the Virgin Mary.

As of 2017, most of the population identify with some form of Christianity (74.6%), with the majority identifying as Catholic (60%), followed by 11.1% identifying as Evangelical. Of the remaining population, 3% identify with some other religion, 4% identify with no religion and 21.1% are unspecified.
