About China

Over the last few decades China´s Christian minority has faced severe persecution at the hands of the government but instead of halting the spread of Christianity this persecution has only helped to spread the Gospel like wildfire all across China.

Christian Aid supports the explosive growth of Christianity in China. As of May 2012, Christian Aid has helped to establish 50+ Bible institutes in China, the first of which was founded in 1990 and there is now one in every province.

Brother X struggled to train believers in his village. Born in southern Henan province, he had an experience with Christ on his deathbed. Revived, he went to Beijing to study theology.

Christian Aid’s Dr. Freddie Sun visited him in 1995 and saw his sincerity and how he was attempting to train 30 students in impoverished conditions. They met in shabby huts and had no electrical power; they had to use candles even in the daytime. Read more.
