Christian Persecution

Christian persecution has touched our conscience as historic Christian lands are emptied due to severe persecution. From the Middle East to Africa and parts of Southeast Asia, Christians are facing new and increasing challenges, causing many to flee.

These countries are of particular concern for KMS:  China, North Korea, Indonesia, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Libya, and Nigeria. There are four main kinds of Christian Persecution in the world today:

  • Persecution born out of war torn contexts like Syria and Iraq
  • Persecution by extremist groups where Christians are the minority like Bangladesh and India
  • Persecution where Christianity is in a sort of active tension with another group like in Nigeria or Indonesia
  • Persecution where Christianity is in a destabilizing relationship with the government or banned altogether like in China or North Korea

KMS helps to host evenings of prayer and witness around the Persecuted Church.
