Spiritual awareness grows as the economy shrinks. Materialisms decline is faiths gain. Church life is reawakening and evangelical numbers are growing. The Nauru Independent Church is the largest evangelical group, but there are believers in the other denominations as well. The JESUS film has been seen by almost the entire population.
The Operation World book, CD-ROM, and DVD-ROM provide far more information and fuel for prayer for the people of Nauru.
