The Church in China

I came across the Joshua Project Website today and found it interesting.  There are 516 people groups in China, and 83% of them (428 people groups) are unreached (having no known believers among them).  Truly amazing though, is how quickly the Church is growing in China:

“The staggering recent growth of the Chinese Church has no parallel in history – from 2.7 million evangelicals in 1975 to over 75 million in 2010. Much growth is among the majority Han Chinese, with some growth among minority groups. A few groups with no known believers among them in the late 1990s now have networks of growing house churches.”

You can search the website for information on any country, and they have statistics for each people group and language….
