WEA: Pray for Shouwang Church



Friday, April 29, 2011

imageThe WEA wishes to express its concern over the recent incidents related to Shouwang Church and the local authorities, and calls upon its member constituency to pray for a peaceful resolution to the situation.

The unsuccessful bid by Shouwang Church to secure their preferred place of worship led its members to express their frustration by choosing to worship outdoors the past three Sunday mornings, which resulted in the arrest and subsequent release of its members by local authorities.  That has created an environment of conflict and mistrust.    


Despite all the reasons that led to confrontations between church members and authorities, we pray that the situation can be equitably resolved.  It is our belief and understanding that the Church in China wishes to be a blessing to their nation, to be good and faithful citizens, and to participate in nation building together with all Chinese.
We call upon all Christians to pray for the Church in China and specifically for this situation.  May the Father’s peace and protection surround those who are amid difficulties and may both sides find a way of bringing about an environment conducive for a peaceful resolution.

The World Evangelical Alliance is made up of 128 national evangelical alliances located in 7 regions and 104 associate member organizations and global networks. The WEA is the world's largest association of evangelical Christians serving a constituency of 600 million people. The WEA is a voice to governments, media, and other faith communities and holds consultative status at the United Nations.
