There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

    
Welcome to the site! This next has nothing to do with the quality of your question, it's just standard to help new visitors avoid misunderstanding the site (as I did at first.) As a new visitor, I'd recommend checking out the following two posts, which are meant to help newcomers "learn the ropes": help page and How we are different than other sites? –  David Stratton Dec 13 '13 at 1:01

Unfortunately, I don't think this question is really a good fit for this site. It's an interesting question, to be sure, but doesn't really fit our format. For one,the answer is likely to change, and fr another, there's the question of where to draw the line. Do we include countries where Christianity isn't banned, but owning a Bible is? Or where it's illegal to convert from Islam, or to evangelize but not illegal to simply be Christian? It's just too broad and non-specific. This needs more focus to be a good question. –  David Stratton Dec 13 '13 at 1:08
    
China, Myanmar and any Muslim countries. But this is actually a "list question". If you'r lucky, someone might make the complete list for you. –  Mawia Dec 13 '13 at 7:00
    
Since this is indeed a dynamic list, I suggest you look at this Wikipedia page. More details can be found on this Open Doors page. –  Wikis Dec 13 '13 at 11:29
    
It is also worth noting that in the more liberal western align muslim countries like the UAE there are churches to which you can go and worship but the attempt to convert muslims is still prohibited. Making them not entirely religiously free. –  Neil Meyer Dec 13 '13 at 14:40
