 Russia’s Newest Law:   No Evangelizing Outside of Church

Foreign guests are not permitted to speak in churches unless they have a "work permit" from Russian authorities.

If a friend or relative from outside Russia wishes to share his or her faith in a Russian home, the guest will be fined and expelled from Russia. 

Any discussion of God with non-believers is considered missionary activity, and will be punishable. 

Missionary activity will be permitted by special government permission. Example: If one who is traveling on a train shares his faith without written permission, the offender will be taken into police custody for the duration of the journey and will be fined 50,000 rubles, or $1,000. 

Offenders from the age of 14 will be subject to prosecution. 

Religious activity is no longer permitted in private homes. Most churches in Russia meet in homes.

Every citizen is obligated to report religious activity, especially of neighbours, to the authorities. Failure to be an informant is punishable by law. 

One may pray, read the Bible at home, but not in the presence of a non-believing person.  Such activity will be breaking the law and be punished. 

If the church has purchased property, it cannot be converted into a place of worship. 

In church buildings, it is not permitted to invite people to turn to God. Worship services are permitted but making a non-believer a follower of Christ is against the law.
