WHERE FAITH COSTS THE MOST.
In 1955, as Brother Andrew sat watching thousands of delegates to the Youth Congress in Poland, God led him to Revelation 3:2: “Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have found your deeds unfinished in the sight of my God.”
Brother Andrew heeded God’s call earning him the nickname “God’s Smuggler” as a result of his work to support the persecuted church. The organization continues to live out Brother Andrew’s mission, in 2019, almost 2 million Bibles and Christian books were distributed around the world.
Many have been welcomed into the Christian family by Brother Andrew and those he inspired. But unfortunately, some of our brothers and sisters live in places where the cost of being a Christian and sharing the Gospel is very high. Thankfully, Open Doors is there for some of our persecuted brothers and sisters:
- 718,770 persecuted brothers and sisters benefitted from emergency relief, community development, education and medical care
- 3,840,306 Christians were discipled, trained, mentored or counselled
“So in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.”
When you join the One Partnership community, you faithfully stand with persecuted Christians to help them remain salt and light where they are by helping meet their immediate needs and support their efforts.
