Christianity in India

First Online: February 09, 2003
Last Updated: October 31, 2016

Christianity arrived in India much before it reached Europe, and it is said that the first surviving church in the world is in India. Some scholars argue that Jesus spent his twenties in India, and it is generally believed that "the wise men from the East" were sages from India.
