(Nanyang, Henan--Jan. 7, 2013) Local police raided a Bible study being held by members of the Chinese House Church Alliance last Friday and banned the alliance from ordaining new clergy, ChinaAid has learned.
The raid was carried out at 12:30 p.m. on Jan. 4 in the city of Nanyang, Henan province, by seven people from the Nanyang Public Security Bureau, the Baihe township police station and the religious affairs bureau. The police officers and government officials ordered the Bible study attendees to register their names and banned the alliance from ordaining new clergy.
Alliance chairman Zhang Mingxuan negotiated with the authorities while the group continued with its lawful Bible study meeting. After the attendees had registered their names, the authorities left and the Bible study continued to meet. Glory to Jesus Christ!
