Indeed, what is experienced and experimented with by the immigrants in America have often become worldwide trends. The Internet has made publications instantly available to anyone anywhere in the world so that believers of the same religion often read the same periodicals, hear the same sermons, and watch the same worship services through online video. Consequently, theological and practical realignment happens constantly to individuals and communities around the globe. Globalization has accelerated the information flow and mutual influence of religious beliefs, practices, and organizations across national borders. In the globalization era, religion in America can no longer be understood in isolation.
