Dr Prabhu Singh, is Principal of the South Asia Institute of Advanced Christian Studies  and has been leading the largest body of research into Christian movements in India, where the church is the fastest growing in the world even in the face of alarming religious animosity. He also revealed that nearly 90 percent of new believers in India are actively engaged in evangelism and that those who come to Christ primarily did so through a friend, family or mission worker.  It’s a challenge to UK churches that we need to not long preach the gospel in words but also in actions building relationships along the way.
