There are over 4,000 distinct people groups in India, and over 1,500 languages spoken. Of the 1.3 billion people that call India ‘home’, less than 3% are Christ followers. Nearly 80% of Indians practice Hinduism and are taught to worship a myriad of gods. Another 12% of Indians practice some form of Islam, making India over 92% unreached. India is a land of people desperately needing the good news of Jesus (Source: Operation World). India is expected to soon exceed China as the largest nation in the world.

The red dots represent unreached people groups (groups that have no access to the gospel). India has the highest concentration of unreached people groups in a single country in the world.
