Our ministry partner in India is ministering to the Dalits - the lowest in the Hindu caste system. Through a variety of programmes, Bible Faith Mission provides Dalits with opportunities to both hear the Good News about Christ and build a better future for themselves.
Bible Faith Mission believes that the preaching of the Gospel should lead the people to a holistic transformation since God cares for the development of the whole person. Their micro-enterprise projects offer small loans to deserving Christians so they can start a small business and help provide for their families.
India is a country diverse in language, caste, religion, and culture with a staggering 4,635 distinct people groups. Hinduism claims about 80 percent of the Indian population, with Islam at 13 percent and Christianity at just 2 percent. Though India is a secular and democratic country, the call for a return to Hinduism is growing in strength. Several states have enacted strong anti-conversion laws which hamper evangelism and ministry efforts.
