Indonesia Megachurch Opens to 4,000 Attendees

ICC Note:

In response to years of Indonesia’s smaller churches being raided and burned, an Indonesia megachurch opened this weekend to 4,000 attendees. Indonesia represents the nation with the highest overall percentage and number of Muslims in the world, and Christians make up only about 10% of the population.
