Many Muslim Refugees In Gemany Convert To Christianity


refugeesMuslim refugees in Berlin, Germany are converting to Christianity, report says.

According to Christian Today, Associated Press reported that a Pastor at the evangelical Trinity Church, Gottfried Martens has seen his congregation grow from 150 to more than 600 in just two years, describing the number of conversions as a ‘miracle’.

One of these converts is Mohammed Ali Zonoobi, a carpenter from Shiraz, Iran, who was recently baptised. Zanoobi was introduced to the Bible aged 18 and attended secret services in Iran. When several of his Christian friends were arrested, he fled with his wife and two children to Germany.It has however been said that some of these conversions are not genuine as the refugees are professing Christian faith to boost chances of staying in the country.

Martens acknowledges this possibility, but says once in church, most people do engage and that around 90 per cent of converts continue attending after they have been baptised.

“I know there are – again and again – people coming here because they have some kind of hope regarding their asylum,” Martens said. “I am inviting them to join us because I know that whoever comes here will not be left unchanged.”
