Christian Persecution Rises in 2020

In Iran it seems there is a ‘forced exodus of Christians as the government acts to exterminate the Persian speaking church.’[1]

Officials aim to eradicate Christianity from the land by arresting house church leaders who are involved in teaching and evangelism.  Reports have shown that often ‘when a muslim is baptised as a Christian they can spend up to a year in prison while the person conducting the baptism can face up to five years imprisonment.’[2]

Many believers have sought asylum in the West but have frequently been refused.  In spite of this, Christianity is growing.
