Around the world, more than 260 million Christians live in places where they experience high levels of persecution, just for following Jesus. That’s 1 in 8 believers, worldwide.
The numbers are astonishing. But behind each number and statistic, there is a human story. The 2020 World Watch List is about these stories behind the numbers.
Each year, the World Watch List provides an unparalleled glimpse into the 50 places around the world where it costs the most to be a Christian.
You can download the 2020 World Watch List for free using the form to the left. As you read through it, consider the words of 1 Corinthians 12:26: “If one part [of the Body of Christ] suffers, every part suffers with it.” Pray through this year’s report and let it move your heart. Learn how the Body of Christ is hurting, and how they are finding joy in Him even in the midst of pain. And learn how, in Jesus, we really are one Church, one Family.
