The Kingdom Grows

The number of Christians in Asia grew from 101 milion to 351 million between 1970 and 2010.
In China, it is estimated that 10k people per day become followers of Christ.
In China, Christianity has grown 4,300% in 50 years.
By 2030, China will have the largest Christian population on earth.
Where Christianity is growing the fastest:
  • there are no Facebook feeds of sermons.
  • there are no large gatherings
  • there are few buildings with padded seats
  • there are no Eventbrite or Facebook events about what’s upcoming
  • there are few full bands
  • some people have to walk dozens of miles to gather with a church of 30-50.
It’s not bad that we have been blessed with these things, but looking around the world we can be reminded that the kingdom grows without them. The Covid-19 crisis may also gives us an opportunity to assess the strategic value of all we do in growing God’s kingdom.
