CHINA PARTNERSHIP

We support an indigenous gospel movement in China

It’s time for a change in missions

Historically, the gospel has spread in China through the work of foreign missionaries. But the indigenous church is maturing, even as persecution is mounting. A new era calls for a new approach. 

We believe that the best way to help spread the gospel in China is by coming alongside the local church already there. They are taking the lead. It is time for us to listen and serve. Our desire is to serve a growing Chinese gospel movement by providing resources, prayer, training, and more. Will you join us?

In this account, he talks about the concept of face, which is very important in Chinese society. Although he lost face before others in this jail cell confrontation, Tan says he does not need to have "face" as others see it. Because of Jesus, he has all the esteem and respect he needs.
