Past conflicts have been damaging to Liberia's economy and infrastructure, and poverty is an issue that must be tackled. However, there is reason for optimism as Liberia is blessed with abundant natural resources, and peace and stability seem to have arrived for the longer term. Liberia was founded as a Christian state, so it is unsurprising that most of the population identifies as Christian.
