Around the globe, millions of Christians are under siege by Muslims. They are being brutalized, enslaved, imprisoned, killed, and their churches burned solely because of their faith. A genocidal campaign is being waged by Islamists in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia determined to purge Bible-faith people, both Christian and Jewish, from the countries they now occupy, even though the Christian communities they are targeting generally predate Islam by hundreds of years. According to Open Doors USA, more than 100 million Christians worldwide face interrogation, arrest and even death for their religious beliefs, with millions more suffering other kinds of oppression and abuses.

The Israel Christian Nexus stands with these persecuted Christians and is organizing major solidarity events in Southern California to call attention to their plight. The gatherings will bring together prominent Christian and Jewish leaders with representatives of the persecuted churches — Egyptian Coptic Christians, Assyrian, Chaldean and Evangelical Christians in Iraq, Syria and Iran. Organizations providing relief to those in Nigeria, Sudan, Somalia and other African nations where Islamic gangs are murdering Christian believers and wiping out their villages will also be part of the events. Members of Congress will be invited to attend to learn more and to see the support their constituents have for the victims of Islamic persecution.

If you would like to attend or organize participation by your church or synagogue, call (818) 503-0300 or check back here on our website for details.
