Is there such a database?

This can be inferred from UNData census data, however, each country has a different set of options, e.g., some countries differentiate between different Christian churches, while others don't.

The Factbook includes a religon entry, for example, the entry for Canada reads:

Roman Catholic 42.6%, Protestant 23.3% (United Church 9.5%, Anglican 6.8%, Baptist 2.4%, Lutheran 2%), other Christian 4.4%, Muslim 1.9%, other and unspecified 11.8%, none 16% (2001 census)

You can get all the data in the public domain in JSON from openmundi/factbook.json for example. Canada example in JSON:

"religions": { "text": "Roman Catholic 42.6%, Protestant 23.3% (United Church 9.5%, Anglican 6.8%, Baptist 2.4%, Lutheran 2%), other Christian 4.4%, Muslim 1.9%, other and unspecified 11.8%, none 16% (2001 census)" }
