Church Raided for Third Time in 30 Days

[234] prayers in [12] nations have been posted for Pastor Huang and the Bible Reformed Church.

On July 15, local authorities entered the Bible Reformed Church in Guangzhou, Guangdong, for the third time in a month. As in previous raids, the officials detained and interrogated the pastor and several others. According to Pastor Huang Xiaoning, about 30 government officials entered the church during a service, told the Christians to stop gathering and required everyone to show their ID cards. They then took Pastor Huang and at least five others for interrogation, which lasted for hours. In June, the church was raided twice and fined 50,000 yuan (about $7,500) for holding religious activities in an unregistered building. The church has been pressured to join the government-sanctioned Three-Self Patriotic Movement for the past eight years, but the church has resisted. Pastor Huang said the church will appeal the charges “in order to become witnesses on God’s behalf.” Pray for justice and that they will be a strong witness for Christ.
