Last week, on the outskirts of the city of Ningbo, a Chinese underground house church pastor shared the details of Beijing’s Five Year Plan incorporate Christianity into the One Religion of China.

Pastor Amos (not his real name) is a pastor of an urban underground house church network with about 150,000 members. It is one of the largest urban networks in all of China. Unlike most pastors in the underground house church however, he is also a pastor in the government sanctioned Three-Self church.

Pastor Amos risked his life to share the information shared in this article.

Pastor Amos is a known Christian. He’s a part of the local leadership for the government’s Three-Self church and in this FOUR PART SERIES reveals the Chinese government’s FIVE YEAR PLAN to Sinanize Christianity and create a One World Religion.

According to the official law of China, “Sinification is the sustaining direction for all religions in China; meaning that religious doctrines are to be guided by the core socialist values, are to promote excellent Chinese traditions, and cultivate ideas such as unity, progress, peace, and tolerance; extracting content from the doctrines that are conducive to social harmony, contemporary progress, health, and civility, while preserving fundamental beliefs, core religious doctrine, and ritual systems, the Sinification aims to extract, and interpreting doctrines in ways that meet the requirements of China’s contemporary development and progress and fit with exceptional Chinese traditional culture.”

It is called the One Church of China because the effort is to bring all of the five main religions including Buddhism, Daoism, Islam, Catholicism, and Protestant Christianity, under the structure of one entity that would all put state above faith. Just as China is ruled by one party, the Communist desire is to also get all religions to also be unified under the CCP.

On December 20, 2023, the eleventh National Christian Conference in China ushered in the top representatives for each religion to lay out the blueprint for the next five years.

In attendance was Rev. Wu Wei, representative for the official church in China, Yanjue, President of the Buddhist Association of China, Li Guangfu, President of the Chinese Taoist Association, Imam Yang Faming, President of the Chinese Islamic Association, and Bishop Li Shan, President of the Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association.

Parroting the CCP’s official vision, Rev. Xu Xiaohong shared a message entitled “Continue to Promote the Chinanization of Christianity and Run Chinese Churches Well in Accordance with the Socialist Society” Rev. Gao Feng explained the new laws to shape the official church of China in the next five years. Several Bible verses were shared to promote Communism and the closing service ended with a song entitled, “I Love the Chinese Church.”

China’s efforts to create the One Church of China comes as at a time when the underground house church currently outnumbers the number of registered party members. The explosion of the house church in China has been something that China has tried hard to contain, but they have failed.

This is not the first time that we see man trying to create a counterfeit to God’s true worship. The Bible highlights one such instance in John chapter 4, when Jesus approaches the woman of Samaria and she says, “Sir, I perceive that you are a prophet. Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you say that in Jerusalem is the place where people ought to worship.”—John 4:19-20 (ESV)

She illuminates the fact that her Samaritan ancestors worshiped on this mountain, but it was well known that Jews considered the place, Mount Gerissim, to be counterfeit and against what God had told them to do.

The problem with Samaria arose after the death of King Solomon when his son Rehoboam was set to become the next king. Jeroboam, his brother, led a revolt and the 10 tribes of Israel crowned him king. Only two tribes, Benjamin and Judah remained faithful to King Rehoboam.

Unfortunately for the King Jeroboam and the ten tribes of Israel however, the Temple was in Jerusalem. God’s people were commanded to worship Him there. King Jeroboam knew he couldn’t remain king long if he allowed his people to leave Israel once a year to offer sacrifices to another, so he set up his own temple as an alternative.

In like manner, the government of China feels out of control when their people worship something other than the Communist Party. Karl Marx called religion the “opiate of the masses” and it is against the basic ideas of Communism, that enforces atheism, to allow such a division in allegiance.



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.
