The mission of Christian Freedom International is to help Christians who are persecuted and suffering for their faith in Jesus Christ. We are a non-denominational human rights organization providing real solutions to conditions of oppression and misery caused by religious persecution. We reach the part of the persecuted Church that is the most repressed, most at risk, and most isolated. In areas of disaster, we provide immediate relief to Christians, and their communities, who are ignored by conventional aid organizations.
It is our privilege to minister to the Persecuted through Bible distribution, medical aid, resettlement assistance, advocacy, asylum case-work, and aid to the disabled; to sponsor schools, vocational training, and self-help initiatives; to provide these services at no charge by CFI staff and volunteers. It is our goal to work together with Christians at home to ease the burdens of our struggling brethren around the world.
CFI is a low overhead organization comprised of a dedicated team of Christian men and women with a passion to serve the Persecuted Church around the world.
Statement of Faith
Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering. Hebrews 13:3
We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God.
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity and humanity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His present rule as Head of the Church and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved, to eternal life, and the lost, to eternal punishment.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, equal before God and made in His image.

She has been an expert speaker at numerous conferences, college classes and teen camps.
Wendy knows what it is to suffer for her faith, she was sentenced, twice, to six months in jail for praying and declining to promise to not do it again. Her cases, based on freedom of religion and speech, were decided by the U.S. Supreme Court and several state courts.
Wendy formerly served as president of Concerned Women for America. She has appeared in every major newspaper, TV and radio network, including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, LA Times, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX News, NPR and many others.

Abroad there are many dedicated, courageous, competent staff members in countries where CFI work is ongoing who deliver medicine, educate children, deliver Bibles, and lift up the name of Jesus Christ under very dangerous and trying circumstances. We do not disclose their names for their own safety.
