// WELCOME TO OPEN DOORS
Open Doors is an international ministry serving persecuted Christians and churches worldwide.
We supply Bibles, leadership training, literacy programmes, livelihood support and advocacy services. We also seek to mobilise the church in the UK & Ireland not only to serve Christians living under religious persecution but also to learn from them what it means to be a disciple of Jesus.
Open Doors originated in 1955, when a young Dutchman known as ‘Brother Andrew’ started smuggling Bibles across the Iron Curtain to the persecuted church. Now, some sixty years later, Open Doors serves millions of persecuted Christians in over 50 countries – including some of the most dangerous places in the world.
It's the gifts of thousands of supporters which make this work possible. Here’s how we spent your money in 2013.
// TOGETHER THIS IS WHAT WE DO
"Behind every number there is a story: a life saved, a future transformed, someone given new hope and strength. And none of this could be delivered were it not for our supporters - people like you." - Eddie Lyle
