The body of christ is hurting

Why Persecution Matters

1 in 7 Christians worldwide are persecuted for following Jesus.

That’s 360 million Christians who are denied access to jobs and education, are arrested, attacked, and even killed for following Jesus.

We don’t work to end persecution. Instead, Open Doors exists to strengthen the persecuted church through it.

We are the body of Christ. When they hurt, we all hurt (1 Corinthians 12:26).
