Answer :from a Non-Christian Perspective Often by force. Constantine made it the "official" religion of the roman empire which is the main reason (in my opinion) it is as pre…vailant as it is today. The crusaides were 200 years of holy wars, and during the inquisition which lasted 600 years and ended just this last century, anyone within the church's grasp could be tortured, executed, etc (usually by the most horrific means imaginable, being cooked alive, having your bones crushed and dislocated etc) for contradicting the teachings of the church even (or I should say especially) if you believed in the bible and christ. When the first settlers came to America, for instance, it was illegal not to go to church, and anyone who refused would be publically whipped. Nowadays however society has moved past such barbarism, and Christianity usually spreads through psychological manipulation, such as offering broken down individuals (people in 3rd world countries, rehab, prison etc especially) an invitation to heaven, where all of their burdens will be no more and they will live forever. And especially through indoctrination. I've talked to thousands of people about their religious beliefs and 99% of the time if someone believes in the bible it's either because they were instilled with a bias towards it in their youth, or they were told they *had* to believe in it to improve their lives, relieve guilt, get into heaven etc. Another way, which is really cynical I think - is in catholicism the teaching that condom use is immoral (despite all common sense and with no rational biblical argument) at the expense of millions of lives each year in Africa alone lost to HIV. I think the catholic church does this to make sure catholics have unprotected sex, lots of children, and that way they retain their numerical dominance in the theater of world religion. Answer: from a Christian Perspective At the very beginning of the Christian era, on the day of Pentecost, it is specifically mentioned that 'there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men out of every nation under heaven.' (Acts 2:5) These, who heard Peter's sermon and were converted took the Christian message to their respective nations at an early date. Persecution of the early Christians actually helped to spread it, contrary to the expectations of the persecutors. The disciples were then spread far and wide as they fled their attackers and shared the gospel wherever they went. Acts 11:19-21. Rome also, being a centre of both trade and government had a Christian presence from an early date as people travelled there who had received Christ elsewhere. Persecution has never been a method used by the spirit of God to spread the Christian faith since co-ercion is specifically an anti-Christian activity, despite the name of Christ being wrongly taken or mis-used by those who sought to win others by force. Since belief in Christ involves a willing assent, co-ercion cannot produce a repentance and willing change in the heart which is required. This has never been God's method and true Christians and non-Christian alike are rightly offended at its use.

As with the spreading of it too most other area's, Evangelist have traveled all over the world to spread the Christan Faith and share with those that are not fortunate to have… heard it before. These areas included African.. One of the earliest reports of the spread of Christianity to Africa comes through the story found in the New Testament book of Acts 8:26-40. This chapter relates how the early evangelist Philip met an Ethiopian who was studying the Old Testament book of Isaiah. Philip offered to explain the meaning of the passage he was reading, and this led to the conversion of the Ethiopian to Christianity. This particular Ethiopian was described as being an important official in charge of the treasury of Queen Candace, so he evidently had some considerable influence. For this reason, Ethiopia in Africa is regarded by many as where Christianity spread out further from.. Christianity became the official reliion of the Roman Empire in the 4th Century AD, including North Africa. Muslims controlled this region later, but they were very tolerant of Christianity, while seldom the reverse is true. In the 19th Century, Christian missionaries ventured into Africa. By the 20th Century, most of Africa was divided and colonized among Christian European countries. The colonial era has ended, but the religion of the former colonizers has remained.
Through Jesus and his disciples. Now-a-days: Christian families, people learning about it in schools, Churches, The Bible.
Many people have spread the Christian religion. One notable person was Saint Paul in the first century who spread it to many Gentile communities, because he believed that God …does not distinguish between groups of people in his love and salvation. His actions have been imitated by many since then, including many saints, like Saint Patrick, and political leaders, like Clovis I. The spread of Christianity was helped by Constantine establishing freedom of religion in the Roman Empire in 313 and Theodosius I making it the official religion of the empire in 395.
Actually it started from the Apostles that take action to spread the Gospel and with the guidance of the Holy Spirit they told the Gospel story. It started from the country of… Israel and spread towards North Africa and the Mediteranean countries and the Middle East Countries. After many centuries the Gospel message reached Northern Europe and was spreak to North America and South America. China was reached and the rest is history. Missionaries, ministers, neighbors, co-workers and both genders spread the gospel. Children spread the message that you can have eternal life in Jesus if you believe he is the Son of God and declare that. Kids are the best story tellers of how Jesus came, died and rose and saves us. You gotta love em.
Both Peter and Paul both sought to reach out to Jews and non-Jews with the gospel. Both preached the same gospel. However, whereas Peter was better attuned to the sensitivi…ties of Jewish Christians, Paul was better attuned to the sensitivities of non-Jewish Christians. The led to a conflict between them over sharing meals (Gal. 2:11-21), which is often - but wrongly - considered to thought to be about Holy Communion, which was resolved at the Council of Jerusalem (Acts 15). The resolution of this conflict meant that Paul and others continued to earnestly preach the gospel to non-Jews. Peter also did the same, sending Silvanus to support them (1 Peter).
They built churches (missions) in colonized lands, which werestaffed by Catholic clergy, and in this way spread Europeanreligion as well as Spanish influence.
