The church in Iran is being called one of the greatest stories in the world today. The Iranian revolution of 1979 established a hard-line Islamic regime. Over the next two decades, Christians faced increasing opposition and persecution. Officials at TGC say persecution threatened to wipe out Iran’s tiny church. Instead, the church in Iran has become the fastest growing in the world, and it is influencing the region for Christ. In fact, more Iranians have become Christians in the last 20 years than in the previous 13 centuries put together.
