Strengthening Christians wherever they're in danger for their faith in Jesus.
God called our founder, Brother Andrew—better known as "God's Smuggler"—to a singular vision: to "Strengthen what remains" (Rev. 3:2). And so he did, smuggling Bibles behind the Iron Curtain to help persecuted Christians stand strong.
That's still what drives us
Today, more than 360 million Christians worldwide experience extreme persecution and discrimination for their faith.
Our mission is to stand with them and let them know they are never alone ... They are part of one Church, and one Family.
Open Doors is the largest network in the world serving persecuted Christians.
We work directly with pastors and church leaders to address the most critical needs of the suffering church on the ground. In every region, the needs might be different, but we seek to strengthen the church where it's needed most.
We are present, on the ground in more than 60 countries where faith costs most. From Sudan to Syria and North Korea to Nigeria—we are serving persecuted Christians where the risk is greatest.
