Syria

The level of persecution in Syria is extreme.

With the violence of civil war and ISIS in recent years, Syria has been become a devastation. Until 2011, Syria’s Christians comprised 10% of the population, approximately two million. Syrians now are one of the largest refugee groups, but many still live around Damascus and Aleppo. ISIS killed and kidnapped Christians in Syria and destroyed almost all churches in its territory. Religious leaders have been a main target for violent Islamic groups. Current civil war still threatens the region with Christians being the most marginalized.

Christianity dates back to the first century. On the road to Damascus, Paul the Apostle underwent his dramatic conversion. Greek Orthodox Christians are the largest in Syria with Baptists, Evangelicals, and Pentecostals as easy targets. Please support Christians in Syria.
