By His Grace

This week on By His Grace, I talk with Andrew Croft about Christian persecution around the world. Andrew works with Open Doors Ministry in Canada. This ministry serves persecuted Christians through training, community development, trauma counseling, and other avenues to meet the persecuted believer right where they are.  

In my conversation with Andrew, we covered some shocking statistics, asked and answered difficult questions regarding persecution in churches worldwide, discussed how North Americans could help the persecuted church, and prayed for the persecuted church and believers everywhere. 

Key Takeaways

  • Research shows that 1 in 8 Christians worldwide face persecution due to their faith in Jesus Christ. 
  • Approximately 60,000 Christians are in prison camps in North Korea.
  • Last year, about 3,000 Christians died because of their faith in Jesus Christ.  
  • To help the persecuted church, we can pray, educate ourselves, and give to the local Open Doors Ministry.
