The Persecuted Church

World Watch List 2018


The Open Doors World Watch List (WWL) tracks the degree of freedom Christians have in exercising their faith. This is done through the data gathered from Open Doors workers on the ground and independent experts.


We hope that the WWL will not only give you a unique insight into global persecution, but also inspire you to stand strong with the Persecuted Church through prayer and action.


“Persecution is not decreasing, it is only shifting further away, and in absolute terms, is only increasing.
In this respect, the World Watch List worries me, but it is a good means of gaining ideas for prayer.”
