The Barnabas Fund states the following:
We believe we are called to address both religious and secular ideologies that deny full religious liberty to Christian minorities, while continuing to show God’s love to all people.
We believe in the clear Biblical teaching that Christians should treat all people of all faiths with love and compassion, even those who seek to persecute them.
We believe in the power of prayer to change people’s lives and situations, either through grace to endure or through the deliverance from suffering.
“Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” (Matthew 25:40)
We seek to meet both practical and spiritual needs.
We seek to encourage, strengthen and enable the existing local Church and Christian communities, so that they can maintain their presence and witness, rather than setting up our own structures or sending out missionaries.
We seek to tackle persecution at its root by making known the aspects of the Islamic faith and other ideologies that result in injustice and oppression of non-believers.
We seek to inform and enable Christians in the West to respond to the growing challenge of Islam to Church, society and mission in their own countries.
We seek to facilitate global intercession for the persecuted Church by providing comprehensive prayer materials
