Global Church Persecution
The plight of the church persecution around the world cannot be pushed aside.
In this episode of Truth and Life Today, Dr. John Neufeld sits down with Johann Mathies, director of Multiply—a mission that mobilizes European partners, churches, and schools for world mission.
The Church in North America has seen very little, if no, persecution. This is not the story for millions of Christians around the world- who are in fear for their lives that their beliefs will land them in prison, or worse.
The plight of church persecution around the world cannot be pushed aside. The Truth of the Gospel must be spread to all of God’s people. It is this reality that fuels Johann Mathies. By recounting some of his stories of evangelism in closed countries like China and Socialist Germany, Johann paints a vivid picture of what Christians across the globe are dealing with – and why North American Christians need to know about it.
