Muslims are severely hindered if they want to convert to Christianity, and converts are threatened when Bibles or other Christian literature is found in their possession. Sharing their Christian faith, even to family members, exposes them to grave risk.
The northern part of the country is especially difficult. There have been cases of Christian children being forced by non-Christian relatives to attend Islamic classes. Women who convert to Christianity can be coerced into marriage with non-Christians, and face the danger of abduction by Boko Haram.
In recent years the Islamist group Boko Haram has waged a series of attacks in northern Cameroon. In predominantly Muslim parts of the country, radicalization is setting in. Church activities have been hindered or disturbed in areas where Boko Haram has been active. Due to the displacement of people, churches have not been able to function normally in those parts of the country. In other areas, government security injunctions have set heavy restrictions on church activities.
A combination factors has pushed Cameroon into the World Watch List:
Open Doors have been involved in Cameroon for many years with OD awareness seminars being presented. From 2008 focus has been much more on finding and equipping the persecuted Church. Our vision for Cameroon is for Christians to increasingly understand persecution and be able to respond to it biblically, to be properly discipled, to increasingly have a biblical worldview on economics, share the gospel with unbelievers and care for new believers while their pastors are nurtured into servant leaders.
