“SAVE US” Movement Works to End the World’s Horrific Persecution Problem
“Why is the world silent while Christians are being slaughtered? The Jewish people understand all too well what can happen when the world is silent.” – Ronald S. Lauder, President, World Jewish Congress
Too few Americans know that 215 million Christians in a record number of countries around the world are subjected to brutal human rights abuses and even genocidal violence by authoritarian regimes and radical groups.
Western Media, countless elected officials, and even some faith leaders have been silent too long to this Anti-Christian plague of oppression and death sweeping the globe .
These crimes against humanity have been allowed to fester and proliferate.
Modern, Global Church Persecution Statistics
- By 2013, more than 450,000 Syrian Christians had fled their homes during two years of war and persecution (NY Times).
- 255 Christians are killed for their faith every month (Open Doors).
- 214 churches and Christian properties are destroyed every month (Open Doors).
- 772 forms of violence (beatings, kidnappings, rape, arrest, etc.) are committed against Christians every month (Open Doors).
Current data and anecdotal information from reputable sources, including the United States Government show this may be the most dangerous time in history to be a Christian.
Save the Persecuted Christians Coalition is a vast and growing group of faith leaders and community influencers determined to raise awareness of the plight of the world’s Christians (Wall Street Journal).
We seek not only to alleviate the suffering, but to discourage and stop those responsible for it by igniting a movement to hold the persecutors accountable and create real cost for their crimes.

The 10 countries where Christians face the most extreme persecution are, in order:
- North Korea
- Pakistan Sudan
- 10. Eritrea
With such staggering statistics available, and the knowledge that most of these crimes are not covered in the media, the STPC Coalition developed a special news aggregator—www.ChristianPersecutionNews.com—to capture current instances of persecution that do make the news and to provide those concerned an easy way to share these heartbreaking stories with others.
One of the ways Americans can render support is by encouraging their pastors and faith leaders to visit www.SaveThePersecutedChristians.org and to order a free banner to display in front of their houses of worship. These simple banners feature a graphic “SaveUs” plea with a cross and the coalition’s website where Americans can learn about the global persecution of Christians and find out more about what they can do to help.
