VISSER Martin CONVERSION GROWTH OF PROTESTANT CHURCHES IN THAILAND. (Mission 47.) (Thailand has over 4.000 Protestant churches, with a total of 325.000 members. Among the ethnic Thai only 0,3% are Protestant Christians. This percentage is slowly growing because the number of Protestants is growing 3% a year faster than the population. Churches in Thailandare mainly growing through conversion. A trickle of people from all over Thailand, and from a wide variety of social backgrounds, are becoming Christians. Protestantism is overrepresented among urban and highly educated people. Although these people have had more opportunity to hear the Christian message, there is little indication that they are more receptive to it. Personal relationships are extremely important in the conversion process. Thai who have a Christian relative are hundreds of times more likely to become Christians than those without Christian relatives. Thai living in a village with a church are almost a hundred times more likely to become Christians than those who live in a village without a church. Some churches attract more converts than others The most important factor is the age of the church. Over 50% of the difference in conversion rate between churches can be accounted for by their age. Young churches attrect far more new Christians than older churches. Another important factor is traditionalism. The conversion growth rate of traditional churches is lower than that of churches that are less traditional. The social stabiblity of Thailand makes it unlikely that Christianity will grow explosively in the short term, but this study shows that continued steady growth of the Protestant community in Thailand is very likely.)
