The main religions in Samoa are of a Christian nature, Congregational, Catholic, Methodist, Assembly of God, Seven Day Adventist, Bahai, the Latter Day Saints and Jehovah's Witness. Prior to Christianity the Samoan practiced a religion that involved ancestor worship as well as the worship of a variety of gods. Nafanua, the goddess of war had predicted that a day would come when a new religion would destroy the old Gods, and as a result of this prophecy the first missionaries to arrive on the island found some very easy converts. Today, religion is an integral part of Samoan life, so much so that it is incorporated in their nations motto, Samoa is founded on God. Daily prayer time is practised in all villages and is called for by the sound of bells or horns. AT this time the village matai's (chiefs) surround the village to ensure this time is respected by passers by, comanding respect and reverence for the practice of prayer. If passing through or visiting a village at this time you must show your respect by not entering the village but sitting quietly outside until the prayers are finished.
