(Sanmenxia, Henan—Dec. 14, 2018) Crackdowns on churches in Henan and Sichuan happened simultaneously this week, in addition to the widely publicized oppression of the Early Rain Covenant Church.

On the morning of December 13, a house church located in Sanmenxia, Henan, was raided by the police during their fellowship. They took away three ministers, but more details are not available at this time.

According to the message from one of the church’s members, more than 200 people attended the fellowship, and police removed three ministers without telling others where they were being taken. The news came from a Christian, who was forced to hide in the bathroom to send it out.

One Christian said about the church, “We hold worship and fellowship secretly. We can’t gather at the church, so we meet at home and can’t let others know.” He also stated that the original venue for worship was severely damaged, with the cross being removed and Christian signs disappearing.

ChinaAid exposes abuses, such as those suffered by Christians in Henan, in order to stand in solidarity with the persecuted and promote human rights, religious freedom, and rule of law.
