About the Solomon Islands

The Solomon Islands is a small country, consisting of 7 major volcanic islands plus numerous smaller coral atolls.

The capital is Honiara on Guadalcanal Island.

The population as at 2000 was made up of Melanesians 90.7%; Polynesians 3.7%; Other 5.6%.

Literacy is 54%, the lowest literacy rate in the Pacific.

The official language English. Trade language, Solomons Pijin, spoken by half the population.

There are a total of 66 languages, but up to 120 if distinct dialects are included.

Two languages have full Bibles, and 10 have New Testaments.

There is freedom of religion with a strong Christian emphasis. Cargo Cults = 1.92% of population; Traditional ethnic = 1.50%; Baha'i = 0.40%

The land has been so exposed to the gospel that only pockets of animists on Guadalcanal and Malaita resist it. Yet the continued influence of syncretistic or almost pagan 'cargo cults', which have prompted an exodus from churches in the past, shows the need for a personal appropriation of the gospel by each generation.
