Growth of Iran’s Christian Movement

It has been estimated that the number of Muslim converts who are risking the threat of imprisonment or death by secretly worshipping within Iran’s house church movement has grown to one million people according to research.
A theological centre known as Pars based in London is currently training ‘at least 200 Iranian Christians to become the next generation of Iran’s church leaders’.
The persecution of Christians in Iran has risen since 1979 and currently about 100 Christians ‘remain imprisoned under Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s rule’.
It is important to note that despite fierce persecution the church in Iran has continued to grow and many are finding Christ to be their Saviour and this is something to offer praise to God for.
