Take a look at this graph. What do you notice?
Of the four major ethnic groups on earth, there are fewer Asians are following Christ.
In God’s sovereignty, He is turning this problem into one of our greatest opportunities. Today, there are two times more foreign-born Asian Internationals living in the USA than there are Latino Internationals. Foreign-born Indian Nationals living in the USA have increased 500% since 1990. In some US communities, Indian Nationals are now the largest minority.
God has literally brought the foreign mission field right next door!
According to Pew Research Center, in 2015, Christians were the largest religious group in the world:
- 7.3 Billion People on Earth
- Christian 31%
- Muslims 24%
- Religious “nones” 16%
- Hindus 15%
- Buddhists 7%
Adherents of folk religions, Jews, and members of other religions make up smaller shares of the world’s people.
Between 2015 and 2060, the world’s population is expected to increase by 32%, to 9.6 billion. Over this same time period, the number of Muslims – the major religious group with the youngest population and the highest fertility – is projected to increase by 70%. The number of Christians is projected to rise by 34%, which is slightly faster than the global population, yet far more slowly than Muslims.
Catch this! The total population of all Asian countries as of 2019 is 4.6 billion people. Not only does that cover the entire 10/40 window but that is two-thirds of the earth’s total population!
So let’s be crystal clear:
- Asians represent 2/3 of the total earth’s population.
- Asians are the smallest group of Christians in the world.
- Foreign-born Asians are the fastest grow population of internationals in the USA.
- The population of Asians in the USA is expected to DOUBLE in the next 15 years.
- NEVER in the history of The Church has there been a better opportunity to reach Asians with the gospel than TODAY.
- As The Church reaches foreign-born internationals, they will reach other foreign-born internationals. Now that is truly changing the world!
