(Worthy News) - The pastor of a church in Tajikistan has called for prayer after secret police raided a church worship service on Sunday 11 March 2018.

Police took photographs and filmed the congregation. They also attempted to search church ministry offices, without the permission or presence of the church leaders. They discovered and confiscated a piece of Christian literature.

After the service, the police questioned the two church leaders at length before leaving. The pastors of the church have already been given two warnings and fined. If a third fine and warning are issued, the church faces the possibility of being shut down. [ Source: Barnabas Aid (Read More...) ]

  1. Do they know, and understand, the shed blood of Jesus Christ?

    It saved and protected, even delivered, God's people in Egypt. So this is a valid question.
