“The Bible course I followed provided me with a foundation, but I continued by personally studying the Bible. The word of God gives strength.”
The Church in Tunisia is growing. Many are interested in the Christian faith, but this doesn’t come without opposition. Muslims make up 99 percent of the population and Islamic militants are targeting Christians. Those who convert from Islam are being locked up by their own families. It is nearly impossible to read the Bible or attend church.
Every citizen of Tunisia is registered as a Muslim. Changing their official documents is impossible and has serious consequences. Many believers are kicked out of school and university; some are forced to marry a Muslim. Christians’ businesses are attacked.
It is very difficult for pastors to publish or hand out Bibles. Without Arabic translations of the Gospel it can be hard for churches to grow.
In cooperation with local partners and churches, Open Doors is supporting the Church in Tunisia through discipleship, Christian literature distribution, socio-economic development and advocacy. Open Doors also raises prayer support for believers in Tunisia.
