The responsibility and role that Chinese takes in world missions is becoming larger, growing from a gospel receiving nation of people to a vast army to proclaim the gospel to the ends of the earth. A growing challenge in world missions is finding the method to serve people with other religious beliefs in the mission fields.

A missionary to Africa said disappointedly that the numbers of Muslims are increasing rapidly in numerous areas, but missionaries with experience, knowledge from research, and expertise are extremely scarce.

In addressing this challenge, CCCOWE has decided from the latter half of this year to create a platform with research information on other religions, which will initially focus on the Muslims, Buddhists, and Jews as the research subject.

This platform already has valuable information posted by scholars, missionaries, and mission agencies, allowing readers to freely access. This will provide great help to the missionaries, who are situated in areas where the cultural norm is of other religion other than Christianity.
