ran is the world's leading sponsor of international terrorism. But did you know the Islamic Republic is also the one country where Christianity is growing the fastest in the world? Mike Ansari of "Heart4Iran" spoke with CBN News' George Thomas and Emily Jones about how God is moving powerfully inside this Muslim nation.

Iran's hardline government has sentenced four Christians to harsh prison terms for putting their faith in Jesus Christ.

Pastor Victor Bet-Tamraz and his wife Shamiram Issavi, who are ethnic Assyrian Christians, and Amin Afshar Naderi and Hadi Asgari, who are Christian converts from Islam, were sentenced to a combined total of 45 years in prison for allegedly conducting "illegal church activities" and spreading propaganda which reportedly "threaten national security."

"These Christians were solely arrested for practicing their Christian faith, including attending Christmas gatherings and organizing house churches," Mike Ansari of Heart4Iran, told CBN News.
