The Punjabi are mostly located in India and Pakistan, although many have spread to other countries, such as those in Oman. One result of having their roots in India and Pakistan is that the Punjabi have a somewhat mixed religious background, with roots in both Hinduism and Islam. Sikhism is another major religion for the Punjabi, which is a mixture of both Islam and Hinduism. The aim of Sikhism is to seek “one god who transcends all religions.” There are around 65 thousand Punjabi in Oman, with only around 0.14% Evangelical among them.*
The church has been planted in Oman, with plans to spread further into Oman, as well as to the surrounding countries.
Join in the effort to reach the Punjabi in Oman.
Sustainability — The Bigger Story
Because of the religious diversity of the Punjabi and the pursuit of many for “one god who transcends religion”, we have a great opportunity to share the love of God with them and show them the one God who transcends all religion that they have been seeking.
Partnership — Move Beyond
– Pray that God will give boldness to the believers in Oman, and will empower them to show the Punjabi the one true God.
