God is working! Praise the Lord! Worldwide Outreach is Happening!
A few weeks ago, I mentioned in a sermon about worldwide evangelism and outreach. It is awesome to see how Christianity is growing in some of the hardest places in the world. I want again to give you the following stats.
In the Pew Research Center 2020, 65% of adults in the United States identified themselves as Christians. They were 75% in 2015, 70.6% in 2014, 78% in 2012, 81.6% in 2001, and 85% in 1990.
Over the past four decades, Christianity has grown faster in China than anywhere else in the world. Daryl Ireland, a Boston University School of Theology research assistant professor of mission, estimates that the Christian community there has grown from 1 million to 100 million. Feb 2, 2023
LA 2018 study by the Gordon–Conwell Theological Seminary discovered that more Christians live in Africa than any other continent, with 631 million Christians throughout the landmass. The study also states that Latin America has the second-highest number of Christians at 601 million Christians, while Europe has the third-highest with 571 million Christians.
According to updated data for 2021, there are now nearly 685 million Christians in Africa, with 760 million expected by 2025. This surpasses earlier estimates of 630 million to 700 million for 2025: “By 2025, that number is expected to nearly double, to somewhere between 630 and 700 million believers.”
Pray for Worldwide Evangelism and Local Evangelism.
