United States of America
The United States of America, a former British colony founded in 1776 has become a land of dreams, opportunity, and freedom for many immigrants who have entered its territory. Located in the North American region, the U.S.A. as of 2020 has a population of 331,626,890 people. It is a global superpower being known to have a strong military and economic force. However, the injuries of slavery and other inhumane practices against minority groups has left unhealed wounds within the land.
Founding itself on Christian principles that have shaped the nation, these principles, unfortunately, have been on a constant decline. According to The Pew Research Center and Barna Group survey polls, Christianity is declining in the U.S. with the highest age group 18-29 years old (Millennials and Z generation) turning away from their faith. In 2019, 65% of people in the U.S. identify themselves as a Christian but less than 30% practice the faith.
On a contrasting note, for more than a century the U.S. has been a missionary force who has sent and supported thousands of workers to the nations reshaping the spiritual landscape of entire nations.
