Friends of the Martyred Church

Givning future and hope to persecuted and suffering Christians

Friends of the Martyred Church (FMC) is an association registered in Finland. FMC was established in 1982 in order to support and help persecuted and suffering Christians. There are more than 360 million persecuted Christians globally.

In the beginning focus was on helping Christians in Sovjet and Eastern Europe. Today we support suffering and persecuted Christians around the globe.

We serve by:

  • Seeing and helping others see the persecution of Christians
  • Praying for our suffering brothers and sisters
  • Giving financial assistance to those in need


  • We believe that God is working today and that God’s word is true
  • We count on the power of prayer and trust God’s guidance
  • We want to be true to the mission we have been given and be a blessing to the body of Christ around the world.
    “If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it” (1 Corinthians 12:26)

To receive regular updates about our work, you can follow us @martyredchurch on Instagram and Facebook. Once a month we send a prayer bulletin by e-mail. If you want to pray with us for the persecuted church, you can subscribe to the prayer bulletin here.

We support some long-term projects and are also able to help at short notice when the need arises.
