Qom is a city in north central Iran, about 90 miles south of Tehran. Though relatively small with just 1.3 million people, it has considerable religious significance. Qom is considered holy in Shi’a Islam, as it is the site of the shrine of Fatimah bint Musa.

Since the revolution of 1979, Qom has become the clerical center of Iran, with more than 45,000 Imams, or “spiritual leaders,” living here. Many Grand Ayatollahs keep offices in both Tehran and Qom.

While the Iranian constitution recognizes Christianity as one of the four acceptable religions, an exception is anyone who converts from Islam to Christianity, which is illegal and can be punishable by death. Despite this, the last few years have seen a tremendous number of converts. Some estimate this to be as high as three million, although it is difficult to access accurate numbers as many of the house churches meet clandestinely.

Whatever the number is, we can praise God for the growing Jesus movement in this city and nation!
