A Christian Revival In India

“India’s church has grown and is getting larger. It now comprises over 70 million members, according to Operation World. That makes it the eighth largest Christian population in the world, just behind the Philippines and Nigeria, bigger than Germany and Ethiopia, and twice the size of the United Kingdom. Unlike believers in those countries, however, India’s Christians live among one billion Hindus.”

“The 2001 Indian census placed Christians at just over 2 percent of India’s population. But currently, Operation Worldputs the figure near 6 percent and notes that “Christian researchers in India indicate much higher results, even up to 9 percent.” Many Indian Christians say that doors closed for centuries are swinging open.”

“Today, broad economic and cultural reforms are sweeping Indian cities, and villages feel the spirit of change. Indians are choosing new ways of life—and many more are embracing the gospel and following Christ. Researchers agree that India has more Christians now than at any other time in its 4,000-year history.”

Here’s the best in Christian belief, there is no caste system we “are all one in Christ” (Galatians 3: 26-28). For the full report: click Christianity Today
