OUR 3 A's
Advocacy is working through government leaders (US Congress, State Deptartment, and the White House) to change legislation, bring pressure on persecuting countries, or to secure the release of the imprisoned.
The Hidden Battle
Jeff King, ICC President
All over the world, a war is being fought. It’s not a war that you will see on CNN, or on the cover of Time magazine.
It isn't even one you can see with your physical eyes. It is a spiritual war, where the gospel of Jesus Christ is spreading into and throughout all the nations while the world and unseen spiritual forces battle back to keep out the light. Who are on the frontlines of this war? Your brothers and sisters.
In this past century alone, more Christians were murdered for their faith than any other century in human history, an estimated 200 million. The persecuted church suffers in the forefront of this war in order that the church might be established where the gospel is either non-existent or oppressed by other religions.
From Indonesia, to India, to the Horn of Africa, believers are economically marginalized, denied education for their children, beaten, tortured, raped, imprisoned and sadly even murdered for their faith. The oppression is limitless, and usually unseen by the world. Visit our persecuted countries page to see where the majority of persecution takes place.
Jesus has called the body of Christ to stand up for our hurting brothers and sisters. How do we help?
