Columbia is one of the most violent and dangerous countries in the world today. For the last forty years, FARC guerrillas have tried to overthrow the Columbian government to create a socialist state. They eliminate anyone who stands in their way.
Columbian Christians stand right in the line of fire, boldly proclaiming that Jesus is the only hope for peace in this war-torn nation. Christians are seen as subversive by FARC. As they preach the truth of the gospel, Columbians are called to submit their lives to Christ, instead of to armed groups that demand undivided allegiance. Pastors are assassinated, Christians are terrorized, and churches are shut down or destroyed because they are seen as a threat to the interests and influences of the FARC.
But God is at work powerfully in Columbia through His persecuted Church as the gospel invades enemy territory. From early missionary pioneers to Columbian evangelists, from jungle pilots to converted FARC guerrillas, these brave soldiers for Christ have given their lives to see many receive salvation in Christ.
This brief overview of Christianity in Columbia reveals the reality of hope and courageous faith in the face of extreme opposition. These testimonies will encourage you to stand firm for Christ in your community, and you will be challenged and equipped to pray for believers in Columbia.
