Christianity has been in the United States since before the U.S. was established as a country. Christianity was established in the early colonial period when settlers from Europe brought Christianity along with them. Many settlers, such as the Pilgrims, settled in the United States in order to escape persecution of their particular denomination of Christianity in Europe.
