China’s Church Growing Despite Intense Persecution and Violence

Churches in China growing despite persecution

Some of the most intense persecution against Christians in China in decades is happening now. According to China Aid, it may be the most opposition the church has faced since the cultural revolution in the 1960s. Speaking in an interview with Greg Musselman of The Voice of the Martyrs Canada China Aid’s Bob Fu highlights how even the state run churches are coming under attack.

“The government-sanctioned churches some pastors were even sentenced to 17 years imprisonment for simply refusing to take down the cross from the rooftops of the church buildings.  Hundreds of thousands of the church crosses were forcefully taken down, burned, destroyed or some even totally levelled with bombs, dynamite by the Chinese Communist Party under the leadership of President Xi.”

Fu cites another case of a church raid in Sanming City in Fujian Province in South Eastern China where even parents faced violent attacks in front of their children.
