For the third year in a row, the modern persecution of Christians worldwide has hit another record high. Here are some facts from opendoorsusa.org:
- Approximately 215 million Christians experience high, very high, or extreme high persecution.
- North Korea remains the most dangerous place to be a Christian. (14 years straight)
- Islamic extremism remains the globally dominant driver of persecution, responsible for initiating oppression and conflict in 35 out of the top 50 countries on the 2017 list of worst countries for persecution.
We must not forget our brothers and sisters! This weekend, we will pray in our services for them. Please join us as we pray.
