Churches in China

In keeping with Rodney Pennington, who studies church growth for Overseas Missionary Fellowship (OMF). In An interview with The Christian Post, Pennington said, “We are overjoyed with what the Lord has already done in China. But that doesn’t mean the task is finished.”

“While 200 million Chinese believers by the year 2030 may seem ambitious, it certainly gives us a strong goal to pray toward,” he said. Pennington believes that China could become vital into the global Church. In recent years, China’s government has carried out an anti-Christians drive. The regime is hostile towards Christians and the Christian faith.

As part of this drive, hundreds of churches bulldozed, crosses removed from tops of churches, pastors and Christians arrested and tortured. However, in the midst of intensifying persecution, Christianity continues to grow. Chinese Christian activist Yu Jie says that “God is far from finished with China.” He continued, “Neither the dead hand of Communism, nor the cynical imitation of Confucianism, nor capitalism, nor democracy, nor any earthly thing will determine the fate of my land.”
