I’ve been doing some research on the state of the evangelical church in Europe.
I already knew that Ireland is only about 1% evangelical, but it turns out that statistic is not uncommon for Europe. If you take Europe as a whole, it’s still only about 1-2% evangelical. Some countries are as low as .04%.
To put things in perspective, North America is about 30% evangelical. The evangelical church is growing 50x faster in Africa than Europe. Even in Asia, the church is growing 43x faster than Europe! If you go by continents, Europe has the lowest percentage of evangelical Christians in the world.
Yet Europe is powerful global influence and many people from restricted nations are moving there in search of better jobs. A strong church in Europe could easily have a global reach! Pray for us as we seek God’s wisdom and power to reach Europeans with the good news of God’s grace!
