It is easy to report about the increased persecution in China, but we mustn’t forget that the church continues to grow during these difficult times.
Two days ago, during a special Sunday morning service in China’s ancient capital city of Hangzhou, China, more than 30 new believers were baptized. According to China Christian Daily, Pastor Zhou Hongliang of the Gospel Church in Lin’an District, five churches came together to host the baptism after new believers passed a test demonstrating their faith.
After the baptism, Rev. Chen Rongmei presided over the first Communion that the new believers were able to join in.
Heaven rejoices over these new believers as do we! As the forces of darkness increase in the world, it has yet to overcome Life, because “in Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (John 1:4-5).
