What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

Taiwan, formerly known as “Formosa”, was mainly inhabited by Taiwanese aborigines until the settlement of Dutch and Spanish during the Age of Discovery in the 17th century. During the Japanese era (1895-1945), no new missions were allowed, with the result that Catholicism and Presbyterianism remained the largest Christian denominations. The development of Christianity took a whole new turn after 1949, when Christians of various denominations followed the Chinese Nationalist army in its retreat to Taiwan. Taiwan government statistics estimated that Christians comprise some 4.5 percent of Taiwan’s population, a figure which is about evenly divided between Protestants and Catholics. Nearly all of Taiwan’s aborigines profess Christianity (some 70 percent Presbyterianism, the remainder mostly Catholicism).
