Saudi believers must keep their faith completely secret. Christian expatriates risk arrest or being deported if they share their faith with Muslims
Some Saudis have had dreams and visions of Jesus. Many others have responded to Christian content on TV or the internet; Nawal is one of them. She first heard about the Christian faith online and got in touch with other Christians through an online follow-up network supported by Open Doors. They sent her discipleship materials and guided her towards an online Bible. Gradually, she felt the Lord speaking to her, and one day she gave her life to Christ.
Nawal keeps her faith completely secret. Believers like her risk being beaten or even killed by family members because of their faith. And yet, Saudi believers are becoming bolder in sharing the gospel with others.

Saudi Arabia is a strongly Islamic nation; according to Islamic tradition, it is the place of the birth and final resting place of Muhammad, the prophet of Islam. The legal system is based on Islamic law, known as Sharia. It is forbidden to openly practise a faith other than Islam. Leaving Islam is punishable by death.
The total score rose 2 points compared to WWL 2019. Pressure increased in 5 of the 6 spheres of life. The violence score was unchanged.
Open Doors supports the Body of Christ on the Arabian Peninsula through organizing prayer, distributing Scripture resources and training of believers and pastors.
Heavenly Father, strengthen and care for our persecuted brothers and sisters in Saudi Arabia. Embolden them in their faith to reach out to others with the gospel, and protect them from those who issue threats. Thank You that You are bringing more believers into Your kingdom.
