A new study has concluded that most evangelical Christians do not live in North America or Europe. According to French researcher Sebastian Fath, most actually reside across Latin America, Asia, and Africa.
Of the roughly 660 million evangelicals in the world, roughly 215 million are thought to live in Asia, while 66 million are based in China, 28 million in India, 16 million in Indonesia, 13 million in the Philippines and 9 million in South Korea.
It is estimated that around 123 million live in South America, mostly across Brazil, Argentina and Guatemala. North America is thought to boast around 107 million evangelicals – 93 in the United States, ten million in Mexico and 4 million in Canada. Shockingly, Europe is host to just 23 million.
Fath’s study aligns with a previous report released by the Pew Research Center which highlighted the same explosion of faith across regions outside of the United States. “Christianity has grown enormously in sub-Saharan Africa and the Asia-Pacific region, where there were relatively few Christians at the beginning of the 20th century,” the report reads.
