Open Doors works in the world’s most oppressive countries, strengthening Christians to stand strong in the face of persecution and equipping them to shine Christ’s light in these dark places.
One of the greatest challenges to Christians living under tyranny and oppression is isolation – from God’s word and from the body of Christ.
Where other Christian organizations cannot enter or have been forced to flee by oppressive governments or cultures, Open Doors can be found – supplying Bibles, training Christian leaders, developing Christian communities and ensuring prayer, presence and advocacy for these suffering believers.
When the Christians are strengthened in the Lord, they begin to demonstrate God’s forgiveness and reach out in love, even to their oppressors.
The witness of the persecuted church has a unique power to reach lives and communities that would otherwise never be open to the gospel – but they cannot do it alone.
