The Gospel to the World

While Christianity has been the fastest growing religion worldwide, Islam is predicted to surpass it.


While Christianity has been the fastest growing religion worldwide, Islam is predicted to surpass it in the next few decades. Christianity is also suffering great losses, with seeming multitudes leaving the faith.

But the stats aren’t the whole story. Non-traditional growth is expected to explode in regions like China and Southeast Asia, as home churches and “underground” churches continue to draw in new Christian converts.

Additionally, the scourge of ISIS has left a strong distaste among many traditionally Muslim peoples and a growing number are turning instead to the Man of Peace, Jesus Christ. “Here’s the Best Prediction Yet of How Christianity and Islam Will Change Worldwide by 2050,” Christianity Today, April 2, 2015.

Jesus did not predict a worldwide conversion to Christianity. He only said that all those living on the earth before He returned would have a chance to hear the gospel. Matthew 24:14. The vast majority of earth’s inhabitants, however, will choose to worship the Beast who claims to be God’s representative on earth. Revelation 13:8.
