World Christians: 80-20 has flipped to 20-80

God has caused astounding worldwide expansion of His church over the last 100 years.

In 1910, 80% of the world's evangelical believers could be found in what is commonly called the West (North America, Western Europe, Australia and New Zealand).

By 2010, the distribution had been turned on its head ... now 80% of the evangelical church is non-Western! And a groundswell of new missionaries is emerging from the continents of Asia, South America and Africa.
