Taiwan Mission Quarterly


Taiwan's Overseas Churches

Volume 7 Number 1 (Summer 1997)


In This Issue

Taiwan is certainly not known as a Christian nation. Any resource book on Taiwan will point out strong Buddhist roots and a lively practice of idolatry. Ancestor worship and animism also play a significant role in the lives of Taiwanese people. So how is it that strong, active Taiwanese churches have sprung up in various parts of the world? It seems that these vital Christian congregations are an outgrowth of the natural desire of Christian people to join together for worship and to reach out to other Taiwanese people in their communities. Perhaps it is simply a case of Taiwanese Christians applying Hebrews 10:25 to their lives. They do not abandon the practice of assembling themselves together in worship, but encourage one another in the Lord. From humble beginnings strong churches grow.
