The Pew Foundation reported in 2010 that there were roughly 2.2 billion Christians worldwide. In 2016, Wikipedia calculates there are approximately 2.6 billion Christians - not counting the growing Chinese and Middle-Eastern churches, making 3 or 3 1/2 billion professing Christians a more realistic number. There are roughly 650 million Christians who belong to Christian denominations teaching that the rapture will occur before the time of great tribulation. These denominations are made up of primarily of cessational Baptists, charismatic Assemblies of God, and a number of smaller Jesus Movement churches. Using the most conservative figure of 2 1/2 billion Christians worldwide, as many as 1/4 of today's Christians believe in a pre-tribulation rapture - or about 25%.
