What We Do
Open Doors began with Brother Andrew distributing bibles to Christians who were unable to access their own. The ministry has now grown to include many other activities being implemented worldwide to persecuted Christians.
In over 50 countries we are:
Providing Bibles and Christian literature
Open Doors provides a wide range of Biblical materials in various languages to persecuted Christians, including Study Bibles, Children's Bibles, MP3 Bibles and discipleship literature.
Training for leadership and discipleship
Open Doors offers training in effective church leadership and discipling others, in order to help believers grow in their faith and learn how to stand strong in the midst of persecution.
Sustaining lives, supporting livelihoods
Open Doors practically supports victims of persecution, violence and natural disaster. We assist Christian families, widows and orphans with literacy training, livelihood and business opportunities.
Open Doors brings personal encouragement to many persecuted believers in various ways, including writing letters and cards of encouragement, as well as sending travellers to meet and pray with them in their local areas.
Speaking out in advocacy
Open Doors helps persecuted believers by advocating on their behalf, providing legal support, seeking positive policy changes and campaigning in Australia.
Raising awareness and encouraging prayer
Open Doors produces a range of resources that are available to Australian Christians, alerting them to the needs to the Persecuted Church and encouraging prayerful support.
