Which country has the fastest-growing church in the world?

Christians in Iran face relentless persecution. Ranked ninth on Open Doors' list of countries where it's most dangerous to be a Christian, open churches are forbidden and converting from Islam – the state religion – is punishable by death for men, and life imprisonment for women. Last year more than 100 Christians were arrested or imprisoned and allegations of torture have emerged.

And yet, the church in Iran is thriving.

In 2015, mission organisation Operation World named Iran as having the fastest growing evangelical population in the world, with an estimated annual growth of 19.6 per cent. According to Mark Howard of Elam Ministries, an organisation founded by Iranian church leaders with the purpose of expanding the church in Iran, more Iranians have become Christians in the last two decades than in the previous 13 centuries combined.

I heard a really great Q&A with John Macarthur today and the question was asked why he doesn't talk much about politics, and his answer was so true. He said that the reason is because it makes no difference to the Gospel or to the Kingdom of God. Political agendas will NOT stop the Gospel from going forth nor will it ever effect the Kingdom. And that is so true! Since a true believers citizenship isn't of this world, we need to focus on the salvation of the lost and proclaim repentance.

So even Iran will never be able to stop the Gospel, nor any person or government. The true Word of God will prevail!

Amen.

Mk 16:9So then after the Lord had spoken unto them,
he was received up into heaven,
and sat on the right hand of God.
20And they went forth,
and preached
every where,
the Lord working with them,
and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.
