Christian Wei is founder and president of Christian Way Missions, Inc., pastor of Christian Bible Church, and president of EUCON International School, all based in Saipan. He sends the following letter regarding persecution of Christians in China.
There are three stages of the Chinese government to persecute house churches in China: The first stage was from 2014 to 2017, which is the urging stage. The Chinese government advised house church leaders to register. The second stage is from 2018 till 2020, which is called the legalization stage, when the Chinese government passed religious laws to criminalize those who did not register under the government. Then finally, the third stage is from 2021 till 2023, which is called the enforcement stage. This is the time when the Chinese government will force all house churches to close. Some stated that it will be returning to the time of “the Cultural Revolution.” But “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1). Please pray for the Chinese Christians.
