The Bajoran religion was the faith of the Bajoran people, based on the worship of the Prophets. The Bajorans believed the Prophets guided and protected Bajor from their abode in the Celestial Temple. (DS9 episode: "Emissary", et al.)

Almost all Bajorans followed the faith and the Bajoran religion infiltrated all of Bajoran society. For instance, in 2370, a Vedek, Sloi, was also director of the government Council on Ecological Controls. (DS9 novel: Devil in the Sky)

Any alternate interpretation of the relationship between the Bajorans and Prophets was met with hostilities and quickly quashed by the religious authorities. This strong enforcement of the religion kept Bajoran united, but had the more sinister background of crushing anyone with an alternative take on the Bajoran's relationship with the Prophets, such as Ohalu who realised the Prophets were aliens rather than gods and saw the Bajorans and Prophets more as equals, learning from each other. (DS9 novel: Avatar)

Bajoran religion is centered around worshipping the Prophets who reside in the Celestial Temple. The principle artefacts of their faith are the Tears of the Prophets, which were sent to the Bajorans over a ten thousand year period by the Prophets. (DS9: "Emissary", et al)

The Bajoran religion is overseen by the Vedeks of the Vedek Assembly, lead by the Kai, the highest spiritual leader on Bajor. In 2369, the Emissary of the Prophets was revealed when Benjamin Sisko discovered the Bajoran wormhole fulfilling a Bajoran prophecy. (DS9: "Emissary")

While most of the populous of Bajor worship the Prophets, a smaller subsection worship the Pah-wraiths. The worshippers of the Cult of the Pah-wraiths were widely considered a joke by most Bajorans but with the temporary closing of the Bajoran wormhole in 2374 increased the cult's influence. (DS9: "Image in the Sand")
