Lumen Life

LumenLife.orgLumen Life is a ministry focus of 1Body Church that seeks to raise the awareness of:

  • The plight of persecuted Christians around the world
  • Our opportunity—and biblical responsibility—to help them.

“Anyone who loves their brother and sister lives in the light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble.” (1 John 2:10)

  Did You Know


  • Christian persecution is the greatest—but least reported—human rights violation in the world.
  • Christian persecution is raging at an all-time high with 245 million Christians experiencing high levels of persecution and suffering in the world today.
  • More Christians were killed for their faith last year in Nigeria then the combined total of all other religious killings throughout the world.


  The Bible’s Emphasis

Home with a heart in it to represent helping the poor, suffering and persecuted Christians.
Globe with a heart to represent helping the poor, without distinction between Christians and non-Christians.
Pyramid of people to represent supporting gospel workers, such as missionaries, pastors and elders.

  Heirloom Love – Small Group Study


Heirloom Love by Dominic Dsputo.Heirloom Love is the legendary first-century Christian love that changed the world 2,000 years ago. We can recapture that love today, and God will use it to change the world. This powerful study will help small groups learn how the love that drove the spread of the early church, where people were coming to Christ even during times of intense persecution. They were willing to follow Jesus even if it meant losing their loved ones, their livelihoods and their very lives.
