China

China: A Changing Country.
The overarching goal of China’s Communist Party is to maintain power through national unity and limiting outside influences in any way possible. If the government decides the church is a threat, life will get much harder for Christians. The church continues to grow and has pledged to send out 20,000 missionaries by 2030.  

Materialism A New Distraction
Although many churches experience more freedom, they can be targeted if they become too large, too political or invite foreign guests who challenge local authorities. For young Christians, materialism has become a big distraction from the gospel.

Life is hardest for those who leave Islam or Buddhism to follow Jesus. They’re often rejected by their families, and can lose their homes and jobs. These communities are struggling to survive.

Your help is making a difference for Christians in China by:

  • Providing biblical and discipleship training to believers from a Muslim and Buddhist background. 

  • Distributing Bibles and Christian literature.

Pray for China

Pray for the government who wants to control the church. Pray that they understand true freedom in Christ. 

Pray for local Chinese Christians to reach out to minority groups in Xinjiang and Tibet. 

Pray that young Christians would understand the value of Christ above all else.
