History Of Christianity In Asia - The Preaching's Fulfillment In All Nations


Jesus preached to all people, rich and poor alike, like His Apostles, such as Paul and Barbara. And Jesus expected others to do the same. There are many rich and poor people in Asia who need to be preached to. There is a long story about the history of Christianity in Asia. Because Asia is such a large continent with 4.6 billion people, it will be an excellent opportunity to preach to as many people as possible.

The Existence Of Christianity In Asia

During the late 12th and 13th centuries, some people tried to bring together Eastern and Western Christianity. There were also many missions from Europe to Asia, mostly by Franciscan, Dominican, or Jesuit missionaries. A lot of people in the Philippines were converted by Spain in the 16th century. In the 18th century, Catholicism spread in Korea on its own.

As of right now, Christianity is still the most common religion in the Philippines, East Timor, and Armenia. It is also the most common religion in Cyprus and Russia. This religion has a lot of people who aren't very religious in countries like South Korea and Taiwan. It also has a lot of people who aren't very religious in countries like China and India. The total number of Christians in Asia is more than 295 million people.

How Did Christianity Came To Asia?

Christianity in Asia has its origins in the early days of Christianity, which originated from the life and teachings of Jesus in 1st-century Roman Judea. The apostles' missionary work then spread Christianity, beginning in the Levant and eventually establishing roots in major cities such as Jerusalem and Antioch.

Christianity In China

It is said that St. Thomas went to China in the Syriac Breviary. The Roman Christian historian Arnobius wrote about China in 303 AD, and he is a good source for knowing that the Christian message had spread to the "land of the silk people." A monastery that was built in the seventh century has been found near Xi'an.

By the 8th century, Christians were common in Imperial China. The magnificent Nestorian monument in Xi'an still demonstrates their faith in God. It lists bishops from across the empire. A Christian doctor from Syria supposedly visited Japan around this period. The Tibetans invaded, and Buddhism re-emerged under the Ming rulers. By the time the Mongols conquered China in the 13th-15th century, Christians had returned. Unlike in the West, no emperors became Christians.

Christianity In Japan

After the persecutions of the 17th century, Roman Catholics in Japan escaped to the forests and caves. When the country reopened 200 years later, a whole group of people who had kept their faith through the ages was found around Nagasaki. When Nicolai became a chaplain for the consulate in Hakodate in 1861, he brought Russian Orthodox Christianity to Japan for the first time.

By the end of the century, about 24,000 Japanese were Orthodox Christians, which is about the same number as today. Americans did most of the Protestant work in the country from when it opened in 1858 until the end of the war. These were the years when Japanese people were in love with everything Western, and the church grew quickly for a while.

Christianity In Korea

People in Korea were persecuted because of their religion, especially during the time when Japan was expanding. American Presbyterians were at the top of their game when it came to Protestantism. In 1890, Nevius had a big impact on setting up a church that was not reliant on foreigners.

The Late 20th Century

Since World War II, there has been a lot more missionary work in Asia. Many people had a vision of how to spread the word of god while they were in the military. After the war, they went back to Asia as missionaries to spread the message to the people there.

During the 20th century, there was a rise in nationalism. This has had two effects on Christianity: There are a lot of things that make Asian churches unique and respectable. Countries like China and Korea have probably had more indigenous churches than at any time in history, and they're stronger than ever.

It has also led to a revival of older Asian religions and a search for ideas and beliefs that don't come from the West. If you go back 17 centuries, you can see that the scripture has been spread in Asia.

The Rise & Fall In Korea Which Affects The Christianity

In November 1997, Korea was hit with a currency-cum-banking crisis that left it with no choice but to ask for help from the IMF. This has also affected Christianity, their faith, and they have no choice but to do their work first. But, after years and years of counting, they recovered and have maintained their faith to this day.

The Preaching In Asia

There are lots of religious groups in Asia, for example, there are Buddhism, Islam, and Hinduism. They are the common religions that are known in Asia and also the most influential groups. These religious groups are spreading different kinds of teaching like worshipping big gods and goddesses statues and something that is connected to that.

But now there is also an organization that is preaching to people with the word of truth in Asia, they are telling people the importance of having faith these days. They are using an amazing tool to make their preaching more effective. This organization is not tolerating the worshipping of wood-carved gods. They preach God's Kingdom instead.


Christianity is rapidly spreading throughout the world, with millions of Christians living in Asia. True, Christianity has a long history in Asia, and it is a preaching's fulfillment in all nations, all people in all nations will hear the truth about God's Kingdom. It is becoming clear to people that worshiping dead gods means nothing to the true God. That is why the history of Asia's Christianity will show you how the previously obstructed truth has become clearer.
