Read what other publications are saying about China Partnership and the gospel movement taking place. From popular blogs to journalistic articles and academic citations, we love contributing to our collective understanding of the house church in China.

The Gospel Coalition:

Love from the Margins: Lessons from 4 Pastors in China

“Only the power of the gospel can enable churches to continue loving the city from the cultural sidelines. And rather than making churches impotent, the call to suffer with Jesus is empowering.”

Young Restless and Reformed in China

“In many ways, Reformed theology in China looks like a newborn colt attempting that first walk—eager, stumbling, up and down and up again. And hopefully, growing stronger and more stable with time.”

Persecuted Chinese Pastor

“A persecuted Reformed pastor in China issued a letter explaining the meaning and necessity of faithful disobedience, how it is distinct from political activism or civil disobedience, and how Christians should carry it out.”

Reformation 500

“Wenhong remembers house-church meetings in living rooms, with the curtains pulled tight…so when Wenhong walked into the auditorium of the Reformation 500 conference in Hong Kong this spring, and saw more than 3,500 attendees (most from mainland China) gathering and worshiping in the open, she could not stop her tears.”

Hope for Hong Kong

“Because we hope in a heavenly King, we do not have to take sides to promote an earthly king. Christians don’t have to bend the truth to either support or denigrate any societal faction.”

Theology Mag:

Perceiving China’s Church-State Relationship through the Nestorian Stele

“Will the unregistered churches survive this wave of persecution? Will they repeat the footsteps of Nestorian Christianity in China and be entirely wiped out? The answer is an unequivocal, astounding ‘no.’ But why?”

Christianity Today:

Women in China’s Churches

“That is where we’ve heard the most from the women: We want more of this. Whatever you’ve got for us, we want it, we’re ready for it, we need it.”

China Closes Megachurches

“Raids on major congregations led by pastors Wang Yi and the late Samuel Lamb represent ‘the most horrendous evil of Chinese society … hindering [non-Christians] from coming to Jesus.’”


Remembering Our Chinese Brothers and Sisters

“Now is an intense and a hopeful time for the church in China. During the past 40 years, Christianity has grown rapidly in the country; scholars estimate that by 2050, nearly 15% of the population will identify as Christian. Yet if these predictions are accurate, the church’s growth likely will happen against a backdrop of persecution.”


Conversations from Reformation 500

“On the one hand, the first generation of believers’ mentality was rather utilitarian: this faith is able to solve my immediate personal problems, therefore I will join this religion or faith. But going forward, you realize that this faith isn’t just to solve people’s individual and immediate problems; rather, it speaks of God’s kingdom.”
