Protestant Christian churches in Mongolia are Lutheran, Presbyterians, Seventh-day Adventists and various evangelical Protestant groups. The Mongolian Evangelical Alliance estimates there are 35,000 Protestant Christians in Mongolia.

Protestant Christian teaching did not reach Mongolia until the mid-19th century, brought by missionaries such as James Gilmour. The rise of a communist government in the 1920s meant an end of the Protestant missions. However, since the end of communism in 1990, Protestant missionaries have become active again.[1]

The country has a local Christian TV station, Eagle TV,[2] and a pro-Christian radio station, Family Radio.

The Seventh-day Adventist Church[3] has around 1,200 members[4] and a language school in Ulaanbaatar.
