Beijing House Church Gathering Raided By Police

China  pdBeijing (China Aid)  Police in Beijing dispersed more than 25 people at a house church gathering on Sunday and took more than 20 of those worshipers in for interrogations.

Shunyi District’s Guoshulin Church, home to dozens of Christians who travel to and from Beijing for work or other matters, was holding a Bible study at 8 p.m. on Sunday when more than 10 officers from the Gaoliying Police Station raided the gathering.

“As we finished our worship, a missionary had just got to the podium to lead us in reading passages from the Bible, and we were praying when the police raided us,” a Guoshulin Church member said. “They told us to stop the gathering.

The police also took several copies of Bibles and hymnals.”

A special message from the publisher...

Dear Reader, because of your generous support, we have received enough funds to send many audio Bibles to Iraqi and Syrian refugees displaced by ISIS in the Middle East.
