Chinese Police Stunned when House Church Raid Doesn’t Go as Planned

During a worship time at a Sunday morning house church, in the western Chinese city of Chengdu, the fellowship was disturbed by a knock on the door. When Dai Zhichao, a pastor-in-training answered the door, he saw it was the police.

The police immediately declared the meeting to be illegal and demanded to see everyone’s identification. The police were visibly shocked when the Christians did not hand over their ID and instead demanded to see a warrant. When the police tried to bully their way into the small apartment, the young minister and several elders blocked their way.  A video of what happened was posted on social media.


The police struck the pastor several times, injuring his arm, and eventually bullied their way into the house. They took the pastor’s cell phone and registered everyone’s ID. Almost everyone at the meeting was arrested, including more than ten children.

On this Sunday morning, let’s remember the persecuted church in China and pray for the churches that are not able to legally meet together for fellowship.

Dr. Eugene Bach is a known trouble-maker with an active imagination and sinful past. He has a PhD, but is not a real doctor, so please do not call for him during a medical emergency on an airplane when someone is having a heart attack. Eugene started working for Back to Jerusalem in the year 2000 after a backroom deal involving Chinese spies, the NRA, Swiss bankers, and a small group of Apostolic Christians that only baptize in Jesus’ name. He spends most of his time in closed countries attempting to topple governments by proclaiming the name of Jesus and not taking showers. From time-to-time he pretends to be a writer. He is not good at it, but everyone around him tries to humor him.
