Christendom: the shifting centre

Lest we think the west is still the centre of world Christianity, the following paragraph by the Rev. Dr. Don Faris is a reminder that things are not what they once were:

There are huge changes happening in worldwide Christianity. The mainline liberal dominated denominations of North America and Europe are in dramatic decline. There are now more Muslims worshipping each week in Britain, Germany and France than there are Christians! Meanwhile, the Biblically faithful, spiritually alive churches in Africa, the Pacific and Asia are growing dramatically. There are now more Anglicans in Nigeria than there are in Britain, Canada and the USA combined! There are far more practicing Christians in South Korea than in Canada! There may be more than 70 million Christians in China! Many of their leaders are serving long jail terms because they will not renounce their faith!
