Open Doors works in over sixty countries,
supporting Christians who suffer
because of their faith in Jesus.
In 2016, we delivered over 2.5 million Bibles and Christian resources around the world.
Last year we trained over 1,050,500 Christians facing persecution or descrimination in church leadership and discipleship.
We provided jobs, health care, safe houses, emergency food and more to over 879,000 people in 2016.
"Not everyone has the opportunity to get a Bible. We need to make a difference.
Delivering Bibles and literature is risky, but I intend to continue in this work"
-Pastor in Central Asia
Pastor Jamal leads a church in Lebanon and welcomes refugees into his church. He wants to help those who have lost everything, and share the Good News of Jesus with them.
“We as Christians are the ambassadors of Christ. Our message for us as believers is to reconcile with God. I would like to try to open the eyes of the brothers and sisters in the rest of the world, to show them we are living in a very special time. We see broken people running away from Islamic extremists. This is the time to show them the real love of Christ. Many have never had the chance to hear the gospel.”
“Thank you. Without your support we could do nothing.” - Pastor Jamal*
