Status: Restricted Nation
Christians make up 2.67 percent of Azerbaijan's people. Armenian churches have been closed and few of the Christians left in Azerbaijan would feel secure enough to attend if they reopened. Police raided one of the nation's largest churches in September, 1999, and interrogated church leaders and foreigners in attendance.
Christian literature can be printed only with government permission, which is never given. There are currently only about 10 items of Christian literature available in the Azeri language.
- dc Talk from their book Jesus Freaks: Martyrs; Stories of those who stood for Jesus: the ultimate Jesus Freaks
- That the Lord would light a fire in the Azerbaijan churches and that many would come to know Christ as their Lord and Savior.
- That more Christian literature would be permitted to be printed to aid those in the country
- That the people of Azerbaijan would be brave and strong in the Lord, and not fall away because of fear.
and God bless the Azerbaijan people.
