Report: Millions Convert to Christians in China; China to Become World's Largest Christian Pop.

According to a new report released by the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR), China is on track to contain the world's largest Christian population, due to a surge in underground house churches and state-sanction places of worship, the Newsmax website reports today (March 10, 2018).

In a background document titled "Christianity in China," the CFR estimates of the number of Protestants at anywhere from 58 million to 115 million and higher -- although fewer than 30 million attend officially registered churches.

The CFR report states the number of Chinese Protestants has grown by an average of 10 percent annually since 1979, putting China on track to have the world's largest population of Christians by 2030.

Estimates of the Catholic faithful in China, meanwhile, range between 10 to 12 million.
