Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor, Your Huddled Christians …
As Christians in the U.S. continue to debate issues of immigration and evangelism, the impact of Christian immigrants to the United States is becoming a major factor in our religious demographics.
Largely without evangelism efforts, the United States gained an estimated 620,000 Christians last year as a result of immigration. A recent Pew report breaks the numbers down.
"Christians remain by far the largest religious group among legal U.S. immigrants, though their estimated share has decreased from 68% in 1992 to 61% in 2012. Over the past two decades, the U.S. has admitted an estimated 12.7 million Christian immigrants." More at Christianity Today.
