The Chinese underground House Church has suffered intense persecution in the last half century, but the intense revival fire that they have experienced during times of the most intense oppression can only be explained as a miracle from God.
During the darkest hours of persecution, it is easy for the Chinese church to feel isolated, alone, and forgotten by the rest of the world, but there is a group of believers that partner with the underground house church to let them know that there are others that are standing together with them. Those believers are a group simply known as GateKeepers.
GateKeepers are a group Bible believing Christians who “remember those who are in prison as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body.” (Hebrews 13:3)
GateKeepers offer a sacrifice every month as a way to show solidarity with the persecuted church. That monthly offering is given in support of Bibles, training, aid, disaster relief, and helping spread the Gospel in the darkest regions on earth.
Jesus told us, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” The underground house church is showing that their treasure is stored up in heaven. They are giving their most valuable treasure to complete the Great Commission – their children. Today, Chinese Christian families are sending their only child to go and serve in places like Iran, North Korea, Iraq, and Pakistan with the knowledge that they will not be returning home to China. Parents are selling their homes, emptying their bank accounts, and sending monthly salaries to support the young missionaries to complete the Great Commission.
Back to Jerusalem GateKeepers strongly believes that there is no great honor than to join the Chinese in this calling. If your heart burns with with a similar desire and you would like to partner together with Chinese believers to reach the unreached, then consider becoming a BTJ GateKeeper.
For less than $1 per day, your monthly commitment of $25 or more can let the underground house church know that they are not alone.
