The Persecution of Linfen Church

Before dawn on Sunday, September 13, 2009, a crowd of 400 government officials, police and hired ruffians launched an attack on Linfen-Fushan Church in Shanxi. With no warning, members who were sleeping at the church construction site were mercilessly beaten, with more than 30 left in critical condition. Bulldozers razed the factory and church building to the ground, and the mob looted any valuables and smashed the remaining property. Following the brutal attack, the Fushan governing officials arrested more than ten Linfen church leaders. On November 25, the Linfen case was sent to trial. ChinaAid has since documented the Linfen Church story, to make the truth known to the world.

I am so amazed by the testimony of my Chinese brothers and sisters in Christ. How great is your reward in heaven. May God give you the strength to endure and the peace to withstand all persecution.

To the Linfen Church Members,

I salute you in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord & Savior, for your persevering faith in spite of severe persecution. Reading your testimony, touches my heart, I feel the pain & trauma you undergo. Keep your faith strong in the Lord; the end is near, Jesus Christ is coming soon.

Thank you so much for publishing my concern; I pray that China Government Authorities shall know the truth, and the truth shall set them free from the bondage of the spirit of hostility towards the followers of Jesus Christ, the King of kings & Lord of lords. May God bless China Government. Amen!

I gave thanks for you when I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus.
听到你在基督耶稣里的信心,我为你献上感恩。
