Beijing Shouwang Church Sept. 30, 2012

Pray for Beijing Shouwang Church 北京守望教会Pastor Tianming applied for administration reconsideration on September 14, and Beijing municipal government replied:

“After investigation, we found no evidence in the application materials you submitted to prove the existence of the incident on which you applied for administration reconsideration. Therefore, according to The Administrative Reconsideration Law of the People’s Republic of China, your application is not qualified to be attended to.”

Responding to this reply, pastor Tianming submitted materials as evidence for the application, and stated:

“the fact that the personal freedom of the applicant, being the senior pastor of Shouwang Church, is restricted, and the related incident of Shouwang Church outdoor service, has long been known to the religious community and to relevant government departments as a public incident. What the applicant submitted is about this public incident. According to The Administrative Reconsideration Law of the People’s Republic of China, being the administrative body immediately over the respondent of this administrative reconsideration as well as the administrative body to implement this administrative reconsideration, Beijing municipal government is responsible for ‘investigating relevant organization and personnel to collect the evidence.’”
