North Korea is regularly named as the worst country in the world to be Christian. All North Koreans are expected to follow Juche (self-reliance), an extreme cult of personality that venerates the ruling Kim family. Other belief systems are viewed as a threat to the regime’s authority, and it is illegal to be a Christian or take part in any Christian activity. Those caught may be detained in prison labour camps, where they are abused, tortured and worked to death. Pray that the Lord will sustain His growing North Korean Church.
