Churches in India thrive to portray the post colonial hangover, the cultural Diaspora of India. In 30-33 A.D. the concept of Christianity
as it was known, begins. These churches expressed the idea that the followers of the religion can all be seen as part of one single group the concept of unitary totalitarianism. Although today there is no single political entity recognized by the secular world as the unique Christian Church. Each of the Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches claims to be the unique church established by Jesus the Messiah. Protestants would hold that the concept is justified by the notion that the Church is ultimately headed by Jesus Christ who acts as the unifying figure for all who claim to follow Him. The phrase `The Church` in its widest possible sense like `the Body of Christ` has a similar breadth till date.
As the waves of Christianity touched the Indian shores, Churches flourished all over India. Portuguese first introduced Church architecture in India. India has Churches of all kinds depicting different forms of Christianity. There are Syrian Churches, Catholic Churches, Protestant Churches and various others as well.
