How many evangelical Christians are there in the world? Researcher Sebastian Fath estimates the number at the beginning of 2020 is 660 million.



Evangelicals, according to Fath, represent 26% of the 2.5 billion Christians around the world.



Asia has the highest number of evangelical Christians: 215 million. China (66 million), India (28), Indonesia (16), Philippines (13) and South Korea (9) are the countries with the biggest evangelical communities.



Africa comes next, with 185 million evangelicals, with Nigeria (58 million), Kenya (20), Ethiopia (18), DRC Congo (15) and South Africa (15) leading the numbers.



South America has, according the estimates, 123 million evangelicals: 47 million in Brazil, and 5 million in Argentina and 5 in Guatemala.



North America has 107 million evangelical believers: 93 in the US, 10 in Mexico and 4 in Canada.



Europe counts 23 million evangelical Christians, with United Kingdom (5 million), Russia (2), Ukraine (2), Romania (2) and Germany (2) in the first positions.



Finally, Oceania counts 7 million evangelicals (3 in Australia, 2 in Papua New Guinea and 1 in New Zealand).



Sebastien Fath underlines that these figures are approximate - based on 25 documents analysed which address the evolution of evangelical Christianity in the world.

If these statistics were correct the 660million evangelicals aould have evangelised the world by now. Sadly only a very few of these evangelicals can actually effectively evangelise accoring to Matt 28. Our Evangelical leaders need to take teams of evangelicals and show them how to evangelise. There are vast numbers of people waiting to hear the gospel and meet the Lord Jesus Christ.
