Nepal is one of the world’s poorest and least developed nations. Nearly one-fourth of Nepal’s people live below the poverty line, making a subsistence living through agriculture. Once known for being the only Hindu Kingdom in the world, Nepal was declared a secular country in 2008. That year it became a Federal Democratic Republic, dethroning a 240-year-old monarchy.

Despite being 75 percent Hindu, Nepal also has significant Buddhist and Muslim populations. The country was closed to the Gospel until 1991 when a multi-party democracy was formed within the constitutional monarchy system. An insurgency by Maoist extremists broke out five years later and led to a 10-year civil war.

Broader freedoms have allowed Christianity to grow miraculously in the past few years. Today, it is estimated that the Christian population has grown to one million. The Nepalese Church is one of the fastest growing in the world today. However, the rapid growth has resulted in an insufficient number of spiritual leaders for the new churches.

Under the rule of the Maoists, Western Nepal has earned the title “The Wild West.” It is the area least reached with the Gospel in Nepal. Persecution is present but it has often had the opposite of the intended effect. The Church is growing with more and more people coming to faith in Jesus Christ.
