The European Union’s Muslim population is only 3% according to The World Christian Database. This is in a slight conflict with the recent Pew Research Forum study. It says that the European Union is 6% Muslim.
What is fascinating about this is that the population of Agnostics and Atheists is 5 times the size of the Muslim population.
I did an interview recently with a pastor in England. He told me of a French woman in his congregation who had become a follower of Jesus a couple of months ago. She grew up not far from Paris. She had never seen a Bible. Never. She could only remember that her parents had told her one story about Moses, she is not sure what it was.
In my experience there are a lot of people in Europe like her. Please pray for Europe. Operation World is a great prayer guide for that. Here is their link. You should, we all should, support Christian missionaries in Europe. They could be from Europe, Asia, Latin America, Africa or North America. There are people from all of the continents bringing the Gospel to Europeans. The European Union has a larger population than the United States and yet has only a fraction of its evangelical believers.
Here are the numbers the World Christian Database has for the European Union:
|Percent of total Population||80%||3%||2%||14%||1%|
