A church in Kobani, Syria, has invited disenfranchised Muslims to convert to Christianity following the terror spread by ISIS in the Syria-Turkey border city, NBC News reports.

"If ISIS represents Islam, I don't want to be a Muslim anymore," Farhad Jasim, 23, told NBC News. "Their God is not my God."

Conversion and Christianity have long been dangerous endeavors in the war-torn area, because "ISIS would kill you immediately," according to a 38-year-old who said his name was Omar for safety reasons, per the report.

"Changing your religion under ISIS wasn't even imaginable," he told NBC News.

". . . Most of the brothers here converted or come to church as a result of what ISIS did to them and to their families. No one is forced to convert. Our weapon is the prayer, the spreading of spirit of love, brotherhood, and tolerance."

According to the Aid to the Church in Need, only 4.6 percent of Syrians are believed to be Christian following the mass exodus of an estimated 700,000 Christians since the start of the country's civil war in 2011.

"If heaven is made for ISIS and their belief, I would choose hell for myself instead of being again with them in the same place, even if it's paradise," a 47-year-old man who asked to only be identified as Firas for safety reasons told NBC News.
