The number of people persecuted for their faith in Christ has risen 20% in just two years. Currently, there are over 260 million Christians across the globe who face high-levels of persecution.
Despite the growing crisis, Christian Persecution is widely ignored by the media and often overlooked within Western faith communities. For this reason, we invite you to March for the Martyrs on Saturday, September 5th to stand in solidarity with the persecuted faithful, march in remembrance of those who have been martyred for the faith, and join your heart to the persecuted members of the Body of Christ around the world.
Our's is a message of hope: persecuted believers are not forgotten, Christian Persecution will not be ignored, and Jesus Christ still has the victory.
"If one member suffers, all suffer together with it" 1 Corinthians 12:26
