Are we on the The Cusp of Destiny in the 21st Century? How do UK mission agencies and the UK church respond to the changing needs of East Asia?
The 20th century was an age of unprecedented barbarism, yet also amazing globalisation of the gospel. Over the past 100 or so years Christianity has experienced an incredible transformation in its ethnic and linguistic make-up. The biggest phenomenon in the history of the church during the 20th century was the growth of non-Western churches. Today Christianity is a global faith, and you and I are privileged to live at a time of tremendous church growth.
This reality must not obscure the fact that there are still many peoples in many contexts who have yet to hear the gospel. But in the years since many of our UK mission agencies were founded, many of the national churches in Asia, Africa and Latin America have been growing and maturing and are engaging in cross-cultural mission themselves.
