House Churches’ Choice: State-Run Church or Persecution

China’s suppression of religious belief is at its worst since the Cultural Revolution, and Christian house churches are especially targeted. On January 16, 2019, the Christian persecution organization, Open Doors, published its annual report “World Watch List 2019,” and named 50 countries that are on the Christian persecution blacklist. China was on it – Open Doors estimated that over 20 million Christians in China were victims of persecution last year, more than any other year in over a decade. AsDavid Curry, the organization’s CEO in North America, said, freedom of religion in China is rapidly deteriorating under the current administration of Xi Jinping.
