Four Christians Detained in Guangzhou Church Raid

[308] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Pastor Detained.

Authorities raided a small house church in China’s southern Guangdong province during a service on June 14, detaining Pastor Huang Xiaoning and three church members. As Huang delivered his sermon, local police broke into Bible Reformed Church in Guangzhou, Guangdong, and demanded that he stop the service. Huang stated that the church had not violated any laws. Authorities videotaped and photographed church members before detaining Huang, a Christian named Wang Chuanjun, and two others working in the church’s kitchen. Once in custody, they were interrogated for hours before being released that night. According to one Christian woman, the church has been harassed many times before. Pray that the church will remain united and continue to meet despite persecution. Pray that non-believers in the community will come to know the truths of the Scriptures worth suffering for.
