Open Doors USA is dedicated to the radical idea that every Christian belongs to one Church and one Family
For more than 60 years, Open Doors has worked toward a simple goal: strengthening Christians, wherever they are threatened for their faith in Jesus.
We started because of a vision God gave our founder, Brother Andrew—a man better known by his nickname, “God’s Smuggler.” God convicted Brother Andrew with the words of Revelation 3:2: “Strengthen what remains.” And that’s still what drives us today.
In more than 60 countries, Open Doors is on the ground, bringing support and help, wherever we’re needed most. Working through local churches and Christians of every culture and language, we want to live out the command Jesus gave His followers: to be one.
Whether believers need long-term or emergency aid, Open Doors is there.
When Christians don’t have access to Bibles or Christian resources, Open Doors is there.
When believers are thrown out of their homes and forced to flee their families, Open Doors is there.
When Christians are persecuted, attacked, discriminated against and targeted because they follow Jesus, Open Doors is there.
And when you support the work of Open Doors through prayer and giving, you can be there, too.
