Churches in China are seeing a massive surge in attendance after an ease on lock downs.
At an official church in Southern China’s Shenzhen, 45 new believers were baptized in Bu’ji Church. Each believer was given a Bible after their baptism. Pastor Chen Yong’an shared a special sermon titled, “Believe and Be Baptized” where the importance of baptism was emphasized for the new believers.
The church erupted in songs of praise by singing the traditional hymn, “Oh, Happy Day.”
This is just one church in Shenzhen, but it is happening all over China. “Our house is so packed,” said one house church believer, sharing concern about the number of believers meeting in their Shanghai apartment. After a loosening of the restrictions in Shanghai, believers flocked to the homes of other believers to be in fellowship.
Please keep the house church in prayer as many Chinese seek for the one true God.
