Giving hope to persecuted Christians since 1995

(CSW) – Eritrea has dramatically announced the official recognition of a Protestant Christian denomination – the Seventh Day Adventist Church – on 5th April at the United Nations Commission on Human Rights (UNCHR) in Geneva . Although the government has said that churches can apply for official recognition, the requirements for registration are both stringent and intrusive, and the majority of churches that have been able to meet them are still awaiting accreditation. The human rights situation in Eritrea has raised international concern over the past 6 months as even the officially recognized Christian sects were reportedly experiencing persecution. Meanwhile, the Eritrean government has denied all these Christian persecutions.
