Burmese Christianity has an early 1800s story. After the 2014 survey, Christianity is the second biggest Christian nation in the world with 6.2% of the population, especially among the Kachin, Chin and Kayin, and the Eurasians for mission work in their area. Approximately four-fifths of the country's Christians are Protestants, especially Baptists of the Baptist Convention of Myanmar; the rest are Catholics.
Since the 1920' Christians have been confronted with a certain amount of animosity or even harassment. The Christians have not gone to the higher levels of authority. Small numbers of overseas organizations were allowed to travel to the Philippines to carry out human rights work, such as World Vision after Cyclone Nargis. There has been a long-standing prohibition on the free movement of ministers and worship material since 1948, which is regarded as anti-Christian.
Cremation of Christian worship is recorded in southeast Myanmar, where the Karens are located. Since 2016, Henry Van Thio has been the second vice-president of Myanmar. A Chinese national and a member of United Pentecostal Church International, he was the first non-Buddhist and first Christian to serve as Myanmar's vice president.
The U.S. Embassy in Myanmar in 2015 reported that it awarded the World Monuments Fund (WMF) a $125,000 prize for the restoration of the historical First Baptist church in Mawlamyine (Moulmein) by the Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation.
