The High Price of Christian Faith in Nigeria

Nov 11, 2021

Strengthen and Support Persecuted Christians

“Two Christians were killed in an attack on a church service in southern Kaduna state [Nigeria] … with eight others slain in earlier assaults on predominantly Christian villages,” reports Morning Star News.

“The lethal attack on Baptist worshippers in Kakau Daji village, Chikun County, also resulted in the kidnapping of dozens of Christians from the Sunday service,” church leaders said.

For years now, Nigeria’s radical Muslim Fulani herdsmen have targeted, assaulted, kidnapped and murdered Christians mercilessly.

One village member reported: “The herdsmen attacked our village at about 4:30 p.m.; they were large in numbers, and they were shooting randomly as they invaded our community. Two of our Christian villagers were killed many others had gunshot wounds.”

Another recalled the brutal slaying of a local pastor: “The pastor stood his ground by refusing to renounce his Christian faith, even when he knew it would cost him his life.”

My heart breaks at how tragic such violence and fear-mongering is. Innocent people in Nigeria are being relentlessly terrorized, solely because of their faith.

I ask you boldly today: Stand with our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ!

“There’s no doubt that it is worth dying for Jesus Christ.” This is what a local Christian said in the wake of the most recent violence in Nigeria.

What faith!
