I have learned that Christians around the world are often harassed, imprisoned,and even killed for refusing to renounce their faith in Christ. What is the best way to assist those being persecuted for their faith?

Thank you for concern for those around the world who are being persecuted for their faith.

There are several ministries to persecuted Christians that we can recommend. While we don’t formally relate to these groups, we prayerfully partner with them in their efforts as is appropriate.

Compass Direct News is a good source of news and information on this critical topic.

The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (SBC) is a vocal proponent of human rights and freedom of religious expression for those in spiritual bondage around the world in our country’s foreign policy endeavors. As an appointed member of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom , Richard Land (president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission) advocates for these rights as well.

Again, we are grateful for your passionate interest in the plight of our brothers and sisters who are suffering in silence. I hope this information is helpful.
