Hardest countries to be a Christian

Get your free copy of the 2022 World Watch List and pray for your persecuted family living in the top 50 countries where faith costs the most.

Around the world, more than 360 million Christians live in places where they experience high levels of persecution, just for following Jesus. That’s 1 in 7 believers, worldwide.

The numbers are astonishing. But behind each number and statistic, there is a human story. The 2022 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.

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.
