    A hard number to measure since Christians are persecuted in many parts of the world.  Nobody can say for sure.  The only thing that can be sure is even with many parts of the world persecuting Christians,  Christianity is the largest professed faith on the planet.  The low estimate is around 2 billion.  1/3 of all people.

    I consider the real number to be half of the low estimates.  While there may be may be many Christians hiding their faith from pollsters,  the number claiming Christianity while not actually believing in Christ offsets it and more. I would consider the true number to be around 1 billion.  

    Atheism is commonly considered to be 16% of the population and I believe the number is actually double.  Atheism borrows from all faiths.  If a person of any religion does not really believe in it then they are an Atheist according to how it is defined.  What they say to pollsters is irrelevant.  The people taking the polls have no ability to detect a lie.

    Matthew 7:13-14

    Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: [14] Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

    There are approximately 3,000,000 who believe in the New Covenant established by Christ. These are the humble members of the "Church of God, World Mission Society."

    Jesus said the way to heaven is narrow and few find it (Matthew 7:13-14), and that most that claim to be Christian, are not (Matthew 7:21-23, where they are not Christians in reality because they add works to salvation, verse 22... that is why catholicism leads to hell and "Jehovah's witness" leads to hell, for some examples, JW also rejects the truth that Jesus is God)

    So the actual number of Christians in the world?  Very low.  But Jesus wants everybody in heaven, and everybody can be in heaven.  Jesus is God.

    Nobody can be good enough to avoid hell. The truth is that death leads to immediate heaven or hell, depending only on whether the person believed in Jesus for eternal life, or not.


    The truth is that Jesus loves you and wants to bless your life freely :) Most of all, Jesus wants you with Him forever, and not in hell. The truth is that every belief except one will lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire for every person. Because nothing pays for our sins except the death and blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of Jesus that is already accomplished by Him . Jesus loves you! The truth is that Jesus is God, and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works, not deeds, not religions. So the only way to heaven and to avoid hell, is by believing in Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47), without adding any of your own works (Romans 4:5). Believe in Jesus to take you to heaven, and you will be in heaven, no matter what, guaranteed. That easy, thanks to Jesus! Tell Jesus that you thank Him that you will be with Him in heaven when you die, because you believe in Jesus! It is too late to be saved, after death
