Before the Islamic revolution of 1979, there were fewer than 500 Christians from a Muslim background in Iran. In 2020, many estimate there are a million or more. Despite severe persecution, the church is growing rapidly.

Prayer has been a vital part of the story of Iran’s church. In the 1950s a group of believers met every night for four years to pray for Iran’s millions.

Iran 30’s short, easy-to-read prayer topics will help you play your part in the beautiful story God is writing for Iran and beyond.

Through her tears, the girl revealed that her relationship with her mother had broken down: she was... Read more

    A new survey by a secular research body has shed new light on the religious leanings of ordinary Iranians. In the survey by Netherlands-based researchers GAMAAN, 1.5% of respondents identified as Christian.
