Mission StatementMORE »

To strengthen and equip the Body of Christ living under or facing restriction and persecution because of their faith in Jesus Christ, and to encourage their involvement in world evangelism by: Providing Bibles and literature, media, leadership training, socio-economic development and through intercessory prayer; Preparing the Body of Christ living in threatened or unstable areas to face persecution and suffering; and Educating and mobilizing the Body of Christ living in the free world to identify with threatened and persecuted Christians and be actively involved in assisting them.

Background Statement

At Open Doors, we’re committed to those who suffer for following Jesus, and we believe the persecuted Church is part of the DNA of every Christian.

Our ministry was launched by a courageous Christian man from the Netherlands named Brother Andrew. Many people best know Brother Andrew from his most well-known book, God’s Smuggler, which tells stories of his secret missions to smuggle Bibles into hostile regions.

During his life, Brother Andrew took great risks to bring the gospel into communist countries during the height of the Cold War. Brother Andrew believed no door is closed to us when we pray—and that same passion is embedded in our ministry:

“Our prayers can go where we cannot…There are no borders, no prison walls, no doors that are closed to us when we pray.” Brother Andrew

Today, Open Doors works in more than 60 coun­tries—serving persecuted Christians where faith costs the most. We support them with Bibles, emergency aid, discipleship training, vocational skills, trauma counseling, advocacy and a host of other ways so that they know they’re not forgotten and can stand strong to serve their communities. So that they can give life.

We’re present—on the ground—and under­stand the full story, not just sound bites or secondhand reports. We pull back the curtain to inspire and invite others to be part of the amazing story God is writing for His Church worldwide.

Because of our frontline access, we are uniquely set up to connect you with your persecuted family.

And we want them to know they’re not alone... that the worldwide Church stands with them.

This is our family. This is our responsibility. This is our mission.


Impact Statement

In God’s story, when one part of His family suffers, all of us suffer. And through faith in Jesus and support from donors like you, we get to regularly see God redeem the impossible. For example, because of your help in 2018:

· We provided things like community support, job training, emergency relief and education training to over 375,000 people.

· 570,000 believers received discipleship, mentoring and trauma counseling.

· Over 2 million Bibles and pieces of Christian literature were distributed to Christians hungry to grow deeper in their knowledge of God and His Word.


Needs Statement

·        In 2018 :

4,305 Christians were killed for their faith.

1,847 churches and other Christian buildings were attacked.
 3,150 believers were detained without trial, arrested, sentenced or imprisoned. 
Over 245 million Christians lived in places where they experienced high levels of persecution.
