Learn More About Persecuted Christians
What Is Persecution?
Persecution is any form of hostility experienced as a result of following Jesus. This can look different for the hundreds of millions of believers who face persecution every day.
For some, it is a denial of basic needs like clean water, food and healthcare, because of their faith in Jesus. Or rejection from their non-Christian family and community. For others, Christian persecution is acts of physical violence, imprisonment, or even death.
Blessed are the Persecuted
Persecution in the Bible
Jesus promises his followers that they will be persecuted, just as he himself was persecuted. While we are not called to avoid persecution, we are, however, called to support those who suffer for their faith, as the global body of Christ, as if we were caring for Christ himself.
