Europe. One of the major cultural centers of the world with its many countries, diverse regional culinary delights, fashion, and architecture. The birthplace of modern day philosophy. The place where the reformation and the Renaissance took place. The cradle of Christianity and once the largest missionary sending force of its time. Europe has definitely risen throughout the ages, and as we’ve climbed, we’ve also walked away from the Lord.

Christianity has become part of the culture, it has fallen to the wayside and most Europeans are nominal Christians at best. According to The Cambridge Companion to Atheism, 19 out of the 25 counties with the highest percentage of atheists, agnostics or people who claim not to believe in God, are European. Sweden is considered the foremost atheistic country in the world. With only 2.5% of Europeans actively following the Lord, there are more Evangelicals in Kenya, one country in Africa, than in all of Europe.

Europe is in desperate need of the Gospel!
