(ChinaAid—May 02, 2021) Early morning on May 02, Bob Fu, Ph.D., founder of ChinaAid, reported that Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials had kidnapped and detained Qie Jiafu [male] and Huang Chunzi [female], two ministers of Zion House Church, Beijing’s largest house church. This past week, CCP authorities also suddenly suspended several nationally influential, Bible-related WeChat public accounts.
Dr. Fu said:
Coupled with the new “Regulations on Management of Religious Personnel,” effective May 1 (Beijing time), the CCP has ordered many official churches to prepare programs to celebrate the CCP’s 100th birthday. This timely, calculated threat indicates that a major storm of persecution against churches in China is now forming.Dr. Ezra Jin and Zion Church leadership shared an update through social media about the latest wave of persecution in China; that the CCP had recently forced quite a few house churches in Beijing to shut down. Following the detention of two of his church’s ministers being detained during the past 48 hours, he and other church leaders issued an urgent prayer request to the world.
