Parts of Germany are among the most godless areas in the world. Belief in God in the old communist east is only 13%. But, at the House of God’s Help (Church) in Berlin, Persian converts to Christianity have doubled the size of the church Deaconess Rosemarie Götz said. “Suddenly new people started coming every week and asked to be baptised.”
Germany has experienced a surge in Islam this year. Muslims conducted a nationwide campaign to give away Korans. But the Iranian immigrants have already known the darkness and oppression of Islam in their native land, and they are hungry for the freedom and joy of Christ.
Götz said, “They’re ahead of us in a sense because they have already been persecuted for Christ. It’s not known how many Persian immigrants have joined churches in Germany, but it has become a nationwide phenomenon, and the baptisms are said to number in the thousands. At the House of God’s Help, it has reinvigorated the congregation. “These young, energetic, diligent Iranian Christians have brought a little revival from Iran to our congregation,” Götz said.
