The Evangelische Kirche in Deutschland (abbreviation EKD, English translation usually Protestant Church in Germany but sometimes also Evangelical Church in Germany) is an organization made up of 24 Protestant churches (see list at www.ekd.de/english/3863.html.) The member churches call themselves variously Evangelical, Evangelical-Lutheran and Evangelical-Reformed. Most of them are regional churches for a particular region of Germany. Together they have about 27 million church members and make up most of mainstream Protestantism in Germany.
