The Akwapim people in general are known for their Christian beliefs and their religious approach to life. Akropong had become the historical home for the Basel Evangelical Missionary Society. The Presbyterian Church continues to be the dominant church in Akropong, however a conglomerate of other churches could be found: The Methodist Church, Pentecostal, Apostolic, Catholic and other faith based institutions can be found all playing a role and shaping the religious lives of the people of Akropong. Ancestral worship has remained strong and cohabited alongside the christian churches. One such notable okomfo was Okomfo Ama Anima. (The renowned strong and powerful Akonedi Shrine is located in Larteh just 10 miles from Akropong).
