Church in Nepal
It is said that Nepal saw the Bible in 1628 when Portuguese Father Juan Cabrel stationed in Kathmandu under gracious permission of King Narashingha Malla. Until 1951 no trace of the Church had been found so far. It is commonly believed that the first Church in Nepal was founded in Pokhara, Ram Ghat Church by David Mukhiya, an Indian Nepali.
As the political instability continued, Church growth took a momentum during administration of different government systems. The more they try to trash, thrash and diminish the Church, but it stood strong, like the Peepal Tree. No one knows the exact numbers of Christians in Nepal. It is observed that from 1million to 3 million Christians live in Nepal.
Christians in Nepal, in different forms, has greater investment in Nepal. Christians celebrate Sabbath, church day, on Saturday. Large numbers of Christian's social organizations, in partnership with the government of Nepal, are running in Nepal in different sectors, like health care, community development, education and development. The Church itself has no proper support from the state and they are always treated mean and low.
Today, Church need safety and support, like other religious groups in Nepal.
