~Scripture Sentence~

“I am the light of the world,” says the Lord;

“those who follow me will have the light of life.”

(John 8.12)





Gracious God,

in order that we children of earth

might discern good from evil

you sent your Son to be the light of the world:

as the light of Christ shines upon us,

may we learn what pleases you,

and live in truth and goodness;

through the same Jesus Christ our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.

open doorsWhat is it like to be a Christian in the Middle East?

To simply have faith in Jesus can bring serious danger – and today, the existence of Christianity in the Middle East is at risk like never before!

In Iraq, Syria and in Egypt, attacks on Christians and their families, communities and churches continue, often with devastating results.

Open doors is standing with believers in the midst of the chaos.

We invite you to journey with us as we explore what Dangerous Faith looks like in these nations today.
