A new prediction has been made about the growth of Christianity in China.

According to Rodney Pennington, who studies religious trends for OMF International, a mission organisation, the communist country will have the World's largest Christian population by 2030.

"We are overjoyed with what the Lord has already done in China. But that doesn't mean the task is finished. By 2030, China will almost certainly have the most evangelical Christians, and that will greatly shape the global evangelical Church in the coming years.

While 200 million Chinese believers by the year 2030 may seem ambitious, it certainly gives us a strong goal to pray toward", he added.

He was supported by Yu Jie, a Chinese Christian and democracy activist, who said, "the greater the persecution, the greater the revival."

Christians in China are currently facing a lot of opposition and persecution from the government, who believe that religion enables citizens to defy rules and traditions.

"We must manage religious affairs in accordance with the law and adhere to the principle of independence to run religious groups on our own accord", China’s President, Xi Jinping, said in May, 2015.

With all of these opposition, it is understandable that some might say that these figures are far fetched.
