Early Rain Covenant Church Bulletin (01/09/19-01/15/19)

“’May every street know the name of the Lord Jesus!’

We don’t know how many streets have heard the name of the Lord Jesus until now, but we know this number is increasing. This increase is not on account of our initiative, nor did we orchestrate it. And God is still continuing to send his ‘special ambassadors’ to prison. This week, eight brothers and sisters were released on bail pending trial, and four more were placed in administrative detention. We use the passive voice here because regardless of whether we are being arrested or being released, we are not doing this of our own initiative.

Jan. 8: The lawyer whom Pastor Wang Yi appointed for himself was taken away by Chengdu police after meeting with Pastor Wang Yi’s mother and son. He was released after six hours. As of now, none of the lawyers working the “12/9” case have seen their clients.

Jan. 9: Brother Zhu Xiaoguang, who was locked up for 27 days in criminal detention, was released on bail pending trial and returned home. He is the first brother we know of to triumphantly return home. He was charged with “illegal business operations,” and his crime was helping the church mail some books. He is the father of little Abel mentioned in the last church bulletin. All of his children were still counting flower petals today looking forward to their father’s return. God has given them an unexpected surprise!

Jan. 10: Brother Fu Lijun and sister Lü Jinheng, who were both in criminal detention, were released on bail pending trial. Brother Liu Yingxu, with whom we had lost contact for a long time, was also released on bail pending trial. Only then did we learn that he had been locked up the whole time. We could not learn any information about him no matter who we asked.

Brother Fu Lijun was the first Christian arrested during the first wave of the “12/9” arrests at Early Rain Covenant Church. His crime was selling the book with the highest volume of sales in the world, the Bible. The sales volume of this book in China is no exception.

Jan. 11: Through help of Facebook staff, our stolen account was returned to us. We officially began using it again on the 11th. These past few days, people have still continually been trying to break into it, resetting the password, and so on. But they have not succeeded. It is likely that these attacks will continue.

We were notified by chance that one sister has been continually and closely guarded at her home by 20 to 30 people since December 9th. She is not even being allowed to leave her home. When she tried getting on a public bus she was dragged off. Because communication channels are being blocked, we did not know that there are some brothers and sisters facing situations like this. Please pray fervently for them!

Jan. 12: Sister Huang Yaling and brother Luo Yao were released on bail pending trial.

Brother Li believed and was baptized in the intensive care ward at the hospital. Praise the Lord! He caused brother Li, who had been in a coma, to wake up that afternoon. His mind was clear and he could clearly communicate. His baptism went smoothly.

Jan. 13: For this second Lord’s Day of 2019, the Scripture was Matthew 12:28-34 and the topic was ‘Loving God and Loving Neighbor.’

One small group was raided while worshipping at a home. A total of eleven adults and three children were taken away during the ordeal. The youngest child was two years old, and the oldest was seven. While police were waiting for more people to come to take them away, brothers and sisters there still continued fellowshipping. Throughout the afternoon until late at night, news trickled in of the brothers and sisters being released one by one. On the second day, it was confirmed that five brothers and sisters had been placed in administrative detention. The sentence of one of them was temporarily suspended, and he was allowed to return home because his wife is still in detention and they have a young child.

Jan. 14: We learned that sister Huang Yutian was released on bail pending trial and returned to her home in Chongqing on the 13th. Brother Wang Fei was also released on bail pending trial.

A young couple announced that they are beginning a relationship together. They shared with everyone about how God led them these past six months from not knowing each other to falling in love with each other, and especially about how God worked all things together for good in the midst of danger and persecution. Through this, God made each of them know for sure that He was the one leading them to enter into a relationship. Even though they are currently forced to be apart and cannot see each other, may God bless them and allow them to break through the distance barrier so that they can know and love each other more, seeking a future running the Heavenly race together.

Jan. 15: Brothers and sisters are still often suddenly being visited by police and taken to the police station for a few hours of interrogation (in some cases even more than 20 hours). Police are searching their phones and trying to crack their passwords. This happened to two more brothers and sisters today. Video cameras have been installed outside the doors of brothers and sisters whose homes are being monitored. They are still being closely followed or secretly stalked. Photos are still secretly being taken of them, and so on. May the Lord give us brothers and sisters an alert mind to help us look out for each other!

National News:

Jan. 10: Fountain of Life Church, which belongs to Western China Presbytery, was raided. The Civil Affairs Bureau, the Religious Affairs Bureau, the Department of Culture, and the police came together, led by the deputy director of the police station. They cited social management regulations (Civil Affairs Bureau), the new religious regulations (Religious Affairs Bureau), and cultural management regulations (Department of Culture). They gave a verbal warning that the church could not organize illegal religious activities. The elders were briefly interrogated and refused to answer many questions. Authorities took a few books.

Jan. 15: At 9:00 a.m., around 50 people with the City Management and Law Enforcement Bureau in Xiamen, Fujian Province, illegally and forcefully removed the aluminum-framed glass partitions, the stainless steel security door, and the electronic lock on the 5th floor of the No. 6 commercial building in Yuanbo Liuli on Xinglin Street in Jimei District without presenting any legal documents. They did so under the pretense of it being a security risk, but their real reason was because the owner of the 5th floor is homeschooling many children and toddlers and throughout the year puts on many cooperative community group activities on the 5th floor, gives education training for teaching mixed classes of regular and special-needs children, hosts activities for families to help each other, holds training for parents, and so on. The security door prevented them from easily entering.

At 11:00 a.m., around 150 Christians in Nanyang prefecture in Henan Province were surrounded by armed police while attending a dinner at the Nanyang Bright Moon Hotel. A few believers who fainted were taken by ambulance to the emergency room. Phone signals inside the hotel were blocked. Details of the situation are not clear.

Summary and Prayer:

After seeing that brothers and sisters of one of our small groups were taken away, a pastor in Wenzhou responded in a message saying, “Thank God! The persecution you are encountering has greatly encouraged me. In the midst of trials and tribulations, you have steadfast hope. This has caused me to repent by fleeing comfort. The next time my church encounters persecution, you suffering saints will remind me that the cross is my glory. Christ’s perfect Kingdom of Heaven has sounded forth out of this environment in which you are trapped and has caused a chain reaction. God has heard our cries.”

Our lives are a play. People will watch it, whether we want them to or not. Sometimes it seems like we are living in peaceful times, but in reality, danger lurks around the corner. Sometimes it seems like the waves are crashing in, but in reality, we are safe and sound. If God uses us to let people see spiritual reality through the play of our lives, then we have lived worthy lives.

As we watch this persecution continue, churches and brothers and sisters from all over the country are being pulled into this storm. This is an opportunity to spread the gospel to the authorities and to all of society, to tell them that God’s only Son Jesus, the savior and king of mankind, was killed in order to save us sinners, was buried, and was raised from the dead by the power of God, that he overcame the power of sin and death. Out of his his love and mercy, God has prepared forgiveness and salvation for all who are willing to believe in Jesus, including Chinese people. At any time, any person can repent of any sin and turn to Christ and fear God, obtaining for himself eternal life and bringing upon his family and country the generous blessings of God.

Early Rain Covenant Church Bulletin (01/12/2019 – 01/14/2019)

Saturday, January 12:

“I’m going to pack socks and underwear, put on warm shoes, put on my down coat, delete everything from my phone, turn it off, and then go to Lord’s Day worship. I will bring a printed Bible and take notes by hand. These are the worst of times, Lord, and they are the best of times. The only question left is should I prepare dress clothes or jail clothes?”

Sunday, January 13:

Police detained at least one small group as they met for Lord’s Day worship this morning in China. The member who talked about not knowing whether to wear dress clothes or jail clothes to church this morning (see our previous post) was one of the many who was taken away. An account of the incident is given below:

“Our small group, the college small group, met at C’s home. At around 11:40 a.m., two police officers from a local police station came while we were having fellowship. They wanted us to register our IDs. We didn’t cooperate. They called over four more police officers and demanded again that we register. We still did not cooperate because they did not follow proper protocol for entering a home. Therefore, with the exception of sisters X and L, who were allowed to stay behind to look after the many children, all of the other brothers and sisters were taken away. Before we were taken, J wanted to lead us in a prayer and was forcefully kept from doing so! But God has already heard! While they were calling the other police officers, we continued fellowshipping together and ended with a time of sharing. Praise the Lord! The Lord is with us!”

Monday, January 14:        

Four of the brothers and sisters arrested this Sunday during their small group worship were sentenced to 15 days in jail. Chen Shaowen (receiving family) was released because his wife (Li Chengju) was already in the detention center and had a child at home:

Lord, please look after them and commemorate them for your church. May the Lord be with them personally and give them an unexpected peace! May the Lord personally comfort, inspire, use these limbs to go to the footsteps of the mission, and bring the gospel to those who are desperate and suffering in the dark!


Early Rain Covenant Church Bulletin (01/02/19-01/08/19)

“Praise the Lord! Brothers and sisters at Early Rain Covenant Church welcomed the new year with a New Year’s prayer meeting. Brothers and sisters sacrificed their love and their knees for the church and for those brothers and sisters in prison. They were also comforted and encouraged by God and by each other. In this new year, members of Early Rain Covenant Church are still being harassed in their workplaces and persecuted because of their faith. School authorities are greatly pressuring some members at their schools, and church workers who have not yet been detained are still being closely monitored through various methods.

Jan. 3: Brother C, who went missing for 48 hours, suddenly returned home and was being monitored by community police officers with “red armbands.” During these 48 hours, brother C was detained at the Chengdu City East Gate Police Station. On the first day of interrogations, police handcuffed this brother to the interrogation chair for 24 hours. He did not sleep or rest and was given no food or drink during this time. Many phones and computers from his home were taken. His wife was taken to the police station for interrogation while carrying her swaddled child. Three men and one woman, none of whom identified themselves, interrogated brother C for 48 hours straight using harsh language, threats, and yelling.

Jan. 4: 90-year-old scholar and brother Zhang Xianchi came down with a sudden illness and was rushed to the hospital. Brothers and sisters dropped what they were doing and went to the hospital. Brother H, from one of the church plants, was being strictly monitored at the time. He broke away from those trying to prevent him from leaving and came to Chengdu to be at the bedside of brother Zhang with the other brothers and sisters. They prayed, sang worship songs, and accompanied him during the hospital stay.

Jan. 5: In the afternoon, the pregnant wife of one brother in criminal detention hemorrhaged. Brothers and sisters rushed to help her get to the hospital. Our Father in Heaven took the child in her womb back to himself. His mom named him Abel and wrote a poem titled “On the Road.” Little Abel has already returned home. We are still on the road, waiting for the day when we all arrive home! (During the Dec. 9th incident at Early Rain Covenant Church, area police officers broke down their door in the middle of the night and dragged this sister from her bed to the courtyard of their complex. She was interrogated for a long time at the police station.)

Jan. 6: This was the first Lord’s Day worship of the new year. The Scripture was the Gospel of John 14:1-14 and the sermon was “Do not Be Troubled.” At 5:00 p.m., while nearly 20 students of the Gospel Class [a Sunday School class for seekers] were eating at a restaurant, area police officers from the Shuyuan Road Police Station arrested them. Students of the Gospel Class were released one by one around midnight. They were required to sign pledges that had been printed off ahead of time which forbid them from meeting together and from attending Lord’s Day worship and Bible studies at Early Rain Covenant Church. The next day, three people were taken back to the police station and interrogated. These three members (sister Li Chengju, sister Deng Keli, and brother Zhu Hong) were still not released after 24 hours. After many inquiries, we were told that they are being kept at the Pixian County Detention Center. Their relatives have not yet received any legal documents regarding their detention.

Jan. 7: Brother Chenbing finally found sister Xiaofeng’s detention notice at the post office. The reason it was stuck at the post office was because the mailing address on the notice did not contain the name of her residential district. Brother Chenbing can finally send clothes to his wife. Some sisters said, “We are truly joyful people in the Lord. When we receive a detention notice we are excited and thankful, as though we just received a letter of admission into the Kingdom of Heaven…God has not forgotten the female criminals in prison. He has sent them a few gospel heroines!”

Since the “December 9th incident” at Early Rain Covenant Church, churches from all around the world have been praying for Early Rain Covenant Church in many ways. There have been outdoor prayer meetings. There have been calls to pray every day at a certain time. There are also brothers and sisters from all around the country who are fasting and praying on their own for the members of Early Rain Covenant Church. We believe that God has allowed suffering to come to his children in order to accomplish something greater. Our ultimate hope is not that this country would allow freedom of worship, for the kind of worship our Father in Heaven desires is worship in spirit and in truth, and this worship cannot be restricted. Our ultimate hope is that the gospel would spread throughout the whole world and that the Kingdom of Heaven would come in its fullness!

Early Rain Church Report: Sunday, January 6, 2019

Police raided a Sunday school class for seekers this Sunday while the class was meeting in a restaurant. They took everyone to the police station. Three members have still not been released. An account of the raid is given below by one brother from the church who was taken:

“Today was the exam for the Gospel Class [a Sunday school class for seekers]. It was also our final class. We met at a restaurant to study and to have a fellowship meal together. We began around 5:30 p.m. At about 6:00 p.m., around 20 officers from the Jinjiang District Police Station rushed in and confiscated all of our cell phones and ID cards.

Then they took us to the nearby Shuyuan Road Police Station. At around 7:30 p.m., brother Zhu Hong and sister Ke Li were taken to the interrogation room and interrogated. At around 8:00 p.m., they took three to four brothers and sisters upstairs to be interrogated. Sister Ke Li was interrogated for around two and a half hours. The brothers and sisters upstairs later came down one by one. I left the station at around 12:10 a.m.

According to my cousin who came to pick me up, I was the second person released. I think the first person must have been sister Ren Pingying and her child (I was told that two police officers took them home). When I was released, brother Zhu Hong was still being interrogated (loud and angry yelling was coming from the interrogation room). Sister Cheng Ju is praying with everyone.

Praise the Lord, the police were fairly gentle this time. In the beginning they were quite severe, but later, while we were waiting, we could talk freely, read our Bibles, and sing hymns. During this time, sister Cheng Ju shared the gospel with an assistant officer and prayed for him.

Please pray for those seekers who have not yet believed in the Lord. This is a big test and trial for them. Please pray especially for brother Zhu Hong and sister Cheng Ju. Ask the Lord to protect them and give them words to speak.

The floor outside of the interrogation room is very cold. No one there has eaten or drunk anything yet. May God help us. May he destroy the schemes of Satan. May he give us the full armor of God so that we may testify well to the gospel and fight the good fight for the Lord.

When the police rushed in, my heart was at peace. Everyone was very cooperative. When we got to the police station, I remembered those brothers and sisters who had worshipped and prayed here before. When I realized that we got to share with them in the bitter cup of the Lord, my heart was continually grateful. May the Lord bless this night. Amen!”


Early Rain Covenant Church Bulletin (12/26/18-01/01/19)

“12/26: In addition to Christmas Eve gatherings in small groups, there were also small group gatherings in the middle of the week. Brothers and sisters studied, shared, and prayed together, and everyone was greatly comforted. The homes of some brothers and sisters were closely monitored on Wednesday evening and all day Sunday, preventing them from attending the gatherings.

12/28: Preacher Cheng Zhangchun was transferred to criminal detention after his sentence in administrative detention was served.

12/29: Little sister Zimi returned to her heavenly home. Around 70 brothers and sisters gathered at Zimi’s home in the evening to bid her a solemn farewell. They were very grateful. Two police officers came. It was a testimony of the gospel for them.

Twenty-some families have husbands or wives in jail. Family members who expressed their thoughts on Weibo or WeChat all had their accounts closed and their articles deleted. They started a public Telegram channel called “Reflections on the Early Rain Covenant Church 12/9 Incident” (https://t.me/qysysnpd). You are welcome to subscribe!

12/30: On the Lord’s Day, we gathered together for worship using special methods. The sermon was “The LORD Will Double Your Blessings” and the Scripture was Job 42:1-17. Everyone was greatly encouraged. However long we suffer, we will be blessed with double blessings for just as long, and this entire process will testify to the glory of God.

On the previous Lord’s Day, worship was interrupted at the home of Elder Su Bingsen. Almost 20 adults and children were taken to the police station until 5:00 p.m. On this week’s Lord’s Day, all of these people still persisted meeting together and used this as an opportunity to practice doing “small things” for the Lord and to practice overcoming fear and worry in their hearts. Praise the Lord! This was the first time these two groups finished a worship service in its entirety without interruption since December 9th.

Brother Wang Jun, who led the outdoor worship service on the Lord’s Day of December 16th by the river, completed his sentence today and returned home! Everyone called him “The Long-Bearded Knight” and “The Missionary.”

As New Year’s Day approaches, there are still brothers and sisters being forced to leave their homes immediately. They are looking for temporary places to say and trying to pack. They are experiencing many difficulties. The law firm where one sister works terminated her contract after she refused to sign a pledge promising not to attend gatherings at Early Rain Covenant Church. She may now not be able to obtain her lawyer’s certification. Many brothers and sisters have been given a “final notice” that if they attend a gathering at Early Rain Covenant Church again, they will be placed in detention.

12/31: The New Year’s prayer meeting began at 8:30. Each small group took turns leading everyone in a song and in a prayer and shared what they were thankful for. The brothers and sisters were greatly comforted and encouraged. As they entered the new year, everyone listened to the hymn “Everlasting Lord,” based on Psalm 90, hoping that they will have as many days of joy as they do of suffering.

1/1/19: Many family members of those detained have appointed lawyers to take on the 12/9 case, but the lawyers are still not being allowed to meet with their clients. The reason given by the detention center is still that the case is being reviewed. One of the litigants is from Guangdong and is not a Christian. She has been kept in Chengdu under suspicion of “illegal business operations.” Her lawyer has also not been able to meet with her. Not only have these appointed lawyers not been able to see their clients, they have been asked, one after another, by relevant departments to drop their cases.

Nation-wide News:

A Three-Self Church in Luoning County, Henan Province has been forced to remove the First Commandment from the Ten Commandments. Earlier in August, the cross on this church’s building was taken down by the government. Bibles have reportedly been completely removed in order to make way for a new translation of the Bible based on so-called “traditional culture” and the core values of socialism. The government has also required all churches to teach the “core values of socialism” as doctrines.

The homes of villagers in Anhui Province have started being searched and all things related to Christ are being destroyed. Some illiterate sisters have been sending voice messages to encourage each other not to voluntarily take down religious décor in their homes. As a result, their WeChat accounts have been deleted. House churches in cities are also being closed and banned.

Summary and Prayer

The new year will bring more challenges. Persecution may become commonplace in more areas. Ask the Lord to lead us and protect us as we walk in the will of God, that we would do so by faith and not by sight, that we would trust in the good purposes of God, that we would have hearts of gratitude and joy, and that we would respond to all maltreatment with a spirit of gentleness. Pray for all pastors, leaders, brothers, and sisters who are detained and in prison Ask the Lord to comfort, strengthen, and protect their bodies, souls, and spirits from harm. Ask him to open doors for the gospel, that they may boldly preach the gospel! Ask the Lord to look after and protect those who have been forced to move, those who have been threatened at work, and other brothers and sisters who are being coerced and forced into difficult situations. Ask that they would resolutely follow Him, that they would give the most beautiful testimonies for him on earth. Ask that those in authority would not abuse their authority, that those carrying out laws would not violate their consciences, and, more importantly, that God would soften their hearts and open the door of salvation! May the Kingdom of God come quickly!”


NOTE: There are two bulletins for 12/28/18: 1) Morning Bulletin and 2) Evening Bulletin:

Early Rain Covenant Church Bulletin (evening of 12/28/18)  

“At 6:00 p.m. this evening, a number of police officers came to the home of Preacher Cheng Zhangchun and searched his house. They took a few books, CDs, and his cell phone. Those who came notified his family that Preacher Cheng Zhangchun has been transferred from administrative detention to criminal detention. He is now being held by authorities at the Chengdu City Detention City.

On December 15th, authorities placed Preacher Cheng Zhangchun in administrative detention for 14 days on charges of ‘picking quarrels and provoking trouble.’ He was originally scheduled to be released on the 29th of this month. According to Chinese criminal law and the usual practices of the justice department, Cheng Zhangchun and the other brothers and sisters in detention might be facing indefinite detention. Authorities can continually alternate forms of detention, prolonging it for several years. The coming days will determine whether or not this is the case for Preacher Cheng Zhangchun.

We just received news that many family members of those in detention have been told they cannot leave their homes tomorrow because city leaders are coming.

A preacher from Enfu Church was notified that authorities are currently trying to determine how close the connection is between the two churches [i.e. Early Rain Covenant Church and Enfu Church].

Early Rain Covenant Church Bulletin (Morning of 12/28/18)

“Since the ‘12/9’ incident began, Early Rain Covenant Church’s WeChat [i.e. social media] groups, including evangelism groups, Bible study groups, fellowship groups, education groups, and humanitarian groups (nearly 200 in all), as well as over half of the personal WeChat accounts of church members, have all been permanently shut down or restricted from sending messages. Tencent, the company to which WeChat belongs, did not give any explanation when they shut down these ministry groups of Early Rain Covenant Church. Church members’ personal WeChat accounts have been shut down with notices saying the accounts are “fake,” “too large,” or “unused,” and they have not been given an opportunity to appeal.

The radio station used by the church to spread the gospel has been deleted by NetEase. NetEase has not only restricted the public from listening to the gospel through the NetEase cloud service, they have also deleted all of the gospel materials in the account and forcefully taken away Early Rain Covenant Church’s ownership of all the audio recordings in the account.

On December 11th, the church’s Facebook account was stolen, preventing us from telling the public about the harsh persecution brothers and sisters of Early Rain Covenant Church are experiencing.

Through a series of restrictions on Early Rain Covenant Church and on the faith of brothers and sisters, and through increasingly strict measures preventing church members from preaching the gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven, authorities are suppressing true churches like Early Rain Covenant Church by controlling various public resources. In this moment we see the mighty arm of God upholding his people, showing them favor and performing wondrous works.

Through much hard work, Early Rain Covenant Church members have opened new media accounts in order to spread the glorious gospel and eternal hope of the Lord Jesus Christ. They are as follows:

Early Rain Covenant Church Bulletin (Dec 27, 2018)

Chinese authorities have forcibly taken away four foster children from one couple at Early Rain Covenant Church. The following is an excerpt from a piece written by Early Rain member Jia Xuewei贾学伟)titled “A Kind of Evil Called Intentional Cruelty” (有一种 叫故意的残忍). Names have been changed for security reasons.

“What makes me weep most is what I saw this morning. The four children in sister C’s family are all being sent back to their birthplace in Xuanhan County and may never be able to return.

The biological family of these four children from Xuanhan is facing extremely difficult circumstances. Their father is absent. Their mother has a mental disorder. Their grandmother and grandfather are very old and have no energy to take care of them. Local welfare agencies won’t take them because of some strange rule. Of these four poor children, the youngest is three years old and the oldest is not yet ten. They were barely surviving at home. C and W brought them to Chengdu to foster them. I remember it caused a stir within the church at the time. With the addition of their own biological child, their family all of a sudden had five lively children. Of course, they were financially strained. W is just a normal mail courier. Providing for his whole family has been difficult. But this has not been a huge concern. God provides for his own children. We all supported them together. For more than a year, the children have been living here and going to school here. They have been so happy.

What is so upsetting is that after the [persecution against Early Rain] began, demons unleashed an even greater spiritual attack on sister C’s family, convincing Xuanhan authorities that those children have fallen into the midst of an ‘evil cult’ from which they must be saved. After they were forced to leave Chengdu today, C cried uncontrollably with her friends. Nothing brings me more pain and grief than what has happened today. My heart has been pierced.”


Early Rain Covenant Church Bulletin (Dec 22, 2018)

“As of today, 16 members of Early Rain Covenant Church have been placed by authorities in criminal detention, 4 have been placed in administrative detention, 5 have gone missing, and more than 150 have been arrested and taken to police stations for long interrogations, including pregnant women, children, and elderly people. Nearly 700 members are being monitored, followed, and threatened by community authorities and security departments of their workplaces. Two people have been beaten and suffered serious wounds. The sanctuary on the 23rd floor, the library on the 21st floor, the liberal arts college and seminary on the 19th floor, and the sanctuary and K-12 school on the 6th floor have all been ransacked and emptied.

Brother Wang Jun, while peacefully and reasonably negotiating with police, was seriously and violently attacked. His head, knees, and toes received wounds in multiple places. After the church lost its sanctuary, he, along with other brothers and sisters, worshipped Christ the Lord beside the Funan River on the Sabbath last Sunday, where he was once again detained. His child, who had just turned one year old, and his wife Tang Shuangfei were also detained. After being interrogated for more than 30 hours straight, brother Wang Jun was sentenced to 14 days in administrative detention.

On December 20th, police came again to the home of Elder Su Bingsen and searched it without a warrant, violating the privacy of other family members. Elder Su Bingsen, as well as the other pastors, elders, preachers, and members in criminal detention, have been deprived of the right to meet with an attorney. We have no way of knowing with reasonable certainty how police are treating them, whether or not they have been abused or tortured while in detention. We plead for the Lord’s mercy.

Normal gatherings at the homes of brothers and sisters are being greatly disrupted. Authorities are sending unidentified men to stand guard outside the buildings and residential areas where these homes are located. These men are following members when they go out and preventing people from visiting them. Families opening their homes for Bible studies are being greatly pressured and coerced. Police are threatening them by saying that if they open their homes again, they will immediately be placed in criminal detention on charges of ‘picking quarrels and provoking trouble.’

Even so, brothers and sisters are still holding fast to the teaching of the Lord Jesus Christ in the Bible to not stop meeting together. They are still bravely preaching His Truth and meeting together in various forms to study the Bible and to comprehend God’s Word.

We offer up thanksgiving to God. As his church is under great assault, he is reviving multitudes of His faithful children.

秋雨圣约教会简报【20190109-0115】

“让每一条街道都知道主耶稣的名!”

我们不知道到现在为止有多少条街道听到了主耶稣的名,不过,我们知道这数字正在增加。这增加不是我们主动的,也不是我们设计的。而且上帝还在继续差派祂的监狱特别大使,这周共有8位弟兄姐妹被取保候审(记录的日期可能会有差错),又有4位被行政拘留。之所以都用“被”这个字,因为无论被抓被放我们都是被动的。

1月8日 王怡牧师所委托的律师与王怡牧师的母亲、孩子见面后即被成都警方带走,6小时后获释。迄今为止129教案的律师们没有一位见到委托人。

1月9日 刑事拘留的朱晓光弟兄在被羁押27天后,被取保候审回到家中,是我们知道的第一位凯旋归来的弟兄。他的罪名是非法经营,罪行是帮助教会邮寄了一些书籍。他就是上期简报中报导的小亚伯的父亲,今天小猪猪们还在数花瓣盼望父亲回来,上帝给了意想不到的惊喜!

1月10日 刑事拘留的付礼俊弟兄和吕金衡姊妹被取保候审。长期失联的刘应许弟兄,也被取保候审释放出来,才得知他其实一直被关押,只是无论怎么查询都没有得到他的消息。付礼俊弟兄是12.9秋雨圣约教案第一波被抓捕的基督徒,他的罪行是出售全世界销量最好的《圣经》,这本书在中国的销量也不例外。

1月11日 经脸书工作人员的帮助,被抢夺走的账号又重新回到我们手中,11日正式恢复使用,这几天仍有人不断的尝试突破,重置密码等,都没有得逞。估计这样的争夺还会继续!

偶然的机会得知有一位姊妹,从129以来一直被二、三十人严严的看守在家,出门都不行,上公交车被强行拽下来。由于交流渠道被拦阻,我们不知道还有那些弟兄姐妹处于这种状态中。请切切代祷!

1月12日 黄雅玲姐妹、罗耀弟兄被取保候审。李老弟在医院的重症监护室内受洗归主!感谢主!让一直昏迷的李老弟兄在当天下午苏醒过来,神志清楚,交流通畅,施洗过程顺利圆满。

1月13日 2019年第二个主日敬拜,经文是马可福音12:28-34,主题:爱神与爱人。

某小组在家中敬拜时被闯入,前后共带走了十一位大人,三个孩子。最小的孩子2岁,最大的7岁。在警察等候更多人手来带走他们时,弟兄姐妹仍旧继续团契相交。从下午到深夜陆续有弟兄姐妹被放出来的消息传来,第二天得到确认有五位弟兄姐妹被行政拘留,其中一位因妻子仍在拘留期间又有一年幼孩子而暂缓执行放回家中。

1月14日 得知黄于阗姐妹已取保候审,于13日回到重庆家中;王飞弟兄也被取保候审;一对年轻的弟兄姐妹公开了他们开始恋爱关系,并跟大家分享在这不到半年的时间里上帝对他们的带领,从不相识到彼此倾心,特别是危难逼迫中上帝如何使万事效力,使他们彼此确认对方是上帝带领要进入恋爱关系的那一位。虽然他们目前被迫分离不能见面,愿主祝福他们可以突破距离的阻隔相知相爱,寻求同心奔走天路的未来。

1月15日 弟兄姐妹被突然上门带入派出所询问几小时,甚至二十几小时,搜查手机,试图破解密码等仍然时常发生,今天又有两位。被监控的弟兄姐妹家门口被装摄像头,贴身跟随或秘密跟踪,偷拍照等,仍在继续。求主给弟兄姐妹警醒的心,彼此守望!

国内简讯

1月10日,华西区会生命之泉教会受到冲击,民政局、民宗局、文化部门和派出所联合由派出所副所长带队一起来,应用社会管理条例(民政局的询问),新宗教条例(民宗局的询问),文化管理条例(文化部门的)。口头传达了不可以非法组织宗教活动。长老简单作了些询问笔录,也拒绝回答许多问题。他们带走了几本书。

1月15日,上午9点,福建省厦门市集美区城市管理行政执法局大约有五十人,在没有出示任何法律文书的情况下,非法将集美区杏林街道园博六里6号商业楼的5楼顶层商铺的铝合金玻璃隔断、不锈钢防盗门、电子锁暴力强行拆除。其借口为安全隐患,而真实的原因是因5楼业主有许多在家教育的孩子及幼童,并且在5楼常年举办许多社区互助的团体活动,特殊儿童与正常幼儿的混合教育培训,家庭互助,家长学习等活动。而此防盗门妨碍了他们随意进入干涉。

上午11点,河南省南阳地区约150位基督徒在南阳市皓月宾馆举行年终餐会祓100多武警团团包围起来。已有120急救车将几位晕倒的信徒送往医院抢救。宾馆内的手机信号被屏蔽,具体情况不明。

综述及代祷

一温州牧者看了主日某小组弟兄姐妹被带走后所发的信息,回应说:“感谢上帝,你们所遇的苦楚让我深受激励,你们在患难中仍有坚忍的盼望。我为之逃避享安逸而悔改,当我教会再次面临环境逼迫时,借着这些受苦的圣徒来提醒我十字架是我的荣耀,你们身陷其中的环境,基督完美的天国着实已经发声,荡起连锁反应,我们的呼声神已听见。”

我们的人生本就是一台戏,无论你愿意不愿意,都会被人观看。有的时候好像岁月静好,却实际是危机四伏,有的时候好像破涛汹涌,却实际是安全稳妥。若上帝使用我们,让人们透过我们这台戏看见那属天的真实,那么我们的人生便活出了本该有的价值。

我们看到逼迫还在延续,将会有全国各地更多的教会和弟兄姐妹被卷入到这场风浪中。这是向掌权者和全社会传扬福音的契机,那就是上帝的独生儿子、人类的救主和君王耶稣,为了拯救我们罪人而曾被杀,埋葬,并以神的大能从死里复活,胜过了罪恶和死亡的权势。因着爱和怜悯,上帝为包括中国人在内的一切愿意相信耶稣的人都预备了赦免和救恩。在任何时候,任何人,都可以从任何罪恶中向主悔改,归向基督,敬畏上帝,使个人得着永远的生命,使家庭和国家蒙受上帝慷慨的祝福。

我们小组,学院小组在C家主日聚会,十一点四十左右,正在交通团契,辖区派出所来了两个警察,要登记大家身份信息,大家不配合。他们又叫了四个警察来要求登记,大家仍旧不配合,因为他们没有任何手续入户登记。于是除了X和L姊妹容许留下照顾众多孩子,其他弟兄姐妹都被带走。走之前J要带我们一起祷告,被他们强行阻止!但神一定已经听到了!在他们叫另外的警察时,我们继续团契相交,直到分享结束。感谢主!主与我们同在!

感谢主,秋雨圣约教会弟兄姊妹以跨年祷告会迎接新的一年来临,弟兄姊妹为着
教会和在监狱里面的弟兄姊妹献上膝盖和爱心,也从上帝和彼此得到安慰和激励。
新年后,秋雨圣约教会肢体仍受到所在工作单位不断侵扰、因信仰受逼迫,有肢

不同方式地密切监控。

1月3日,失踪48小时的C弟兄突然回到家中由其居住社区“红袖章”看管。这48
小时里,C弟兄被关押于成都市东门一派出所,第一天的审讯,警方用铁铐将这
弟兄反拷在审问椅上达24小时,其间没有睡眠、没有休息、没有饮水和食物。家
里多部手机、电脑被扣押,她的妻子抱着襁褓中的孩子也被控制带往派出所接受

1月4日,九十高龄学者张先痴弟兄突发疾病入院抢救,教会弟兄姐妹们放下手中
的活赶往医院,布道所H弟兄正在被监视严管期间,冲破阻力来到成都同弟兄姐
妹们一起在张弟兄病榻为他祷告,唱赞美诗,在他的抢救过程中陪伴他。

1月5日下午,一位被刑拘弟兄怀孕十周的妻子大出血,弟兄姐妹们迅速前往帮助
她去到医院,腹中胎儿被天父上帝接回衪的怀中,妈妈给他取名叫亚伯,写了一

说是已经关押郫县看守所。亲属未收到任何关押法律文书。

1月7日沈冰弟兄终于在邮局查找到晓风姊妹的拘留通知书,被压在邮局的原因是
通知书的收件地址没有写小区名字。沈冰弟兄终于可以给妻子送衣物了。有姐妹

录取通知书。”“上帝没有忽略监狱里的女犯人,差去了几名福音侠女勇士!”

“12.9”秋雨圣约教案以来,世界各地的教会以各种方式为秋雨圣约教会祷告,
有户外聚集祷告会,有呼吁每天定时祷告;也有全国各地主内弟兄姐妹自发为秋

更大的事。我们的终极盼望不在于这个国家是否允许自由敬拜,因为天父要的敬

今天是福音班的考道也是最后一节课,在一个餐厅学习和爱筵,大约17:30开始,在18:00左右,锦江分局冲进来大约20人左右,没收了所有的手机和身份证,之后被带回到比较近的书院街派出所,19:30左右朱红弟兄和柯利姊妹被带到询问室接受询问,20:00左右带走了3-4位弟兄姊妹到楼上询问,柯利姊妹被询问大约2个半小时,后面楼上的弟兄姊妹逐个下来,我出来的时候大约0:10分,据来接我的表哥说,我是第二个被放出的,第一个应该是任凭英姐妹和他的孩子(据说是被两位警察带回),我被放出的时候,朱红弟兄仍在被询问(询问室的呵斥声很大气),成菊姊妹在和大家一起祷告。感谢主,这次警方执法比较温柔,前面时间比较严厉,之后我们在等候期间依然可以自由的交谈,读经,唱诗。期间成菊姊妹还和一位协警分享了福音,也为他作了一个祷告。请大家为那些还没有信主的慕道朋友祷告,这次的磨练和试探很大,也请大家特别为朱红弟兄和成菊姊妹祷告,求主保守他们,赐他们当说的话。

询问室门前的空地上很冷,大家一直到现在没有吃任何东西,也没有水喝,求神帮助我们,败坏魔鬼撒旦的诡计,赐我们全副的军装,为福音作那美好的见证,为主打那美好的仗。

警察冲进来的时候我心里很平安,大家的态度也都是很配合,到了派出所,想起之前也有弟兄姊妹在这里赞美祷告,与主的苦杯同有份了,心里就不住的感恩,求主保守这个夜晚。阿门!


秋雨教会简报 2018 12 26 – 2019 01 01

12月26日,本周平安夜圣诞日各组聚会之外,周间仍有小组聚会。弟兄姐妹共同学习,彼此分享交通祷告,很得安慰。有弟兄姐妹的家周三晚上和周日整天被重点监控,无法参加聚会。

12月28日,程章纯传道行政拘留期满后转为刑拘。

12月29日,子秘小姊妹回天家,晚上约70位弟兄姐妹聚集子秘家中,隆重送别,非常感恩。有两位JC跟来,对他们也是一次福音的见证。

二十几个家庭遭遇丈夫或妻子被监禁,家属们各自在微博微信里表达她们的思念之情,她们的账号都遭到被封文章被删 ,如今大家开创了一个共同的TG频道《秋雨圣约12.9教案思念频道》 https://t.me/qysysnpd ,欢迎订阅!

12月30日,主日采取特殊形式聚集敬拜,讲道《耶和华要加倍赐福与你》,经文约伯记42:1-17,众人大得激励。我们受苦有多长,后来蒙福加倍的长,整个过程都是见证上帝的荣耀。

上个主日苏炳森长老家中的主日敬拜被迫中断,近20位大人孩子被带去派出所直至下午5点,本主日大家仍然坚持聚集,并以此来操练自己为主做小事,操练胜过内心的惧怕和不安。感谢主,这是这两个组自12.9之后第一次完整且平安的完成了整个崇拜和团契。

在河边带领弟兄姊妹们12月16日主日户外敬拜的王军弟兄,今天拘留已满回到家中!被大家称为大胡子骑士和宣教士。

元旦将至,仍有弟兄姐妹被强迫立即搬家,寻找临时住处和打包等,经历恨多艰难。一位姊妹因拒绝签署不参加秋雨圣约教会聚会的承诺书,被所工作的律师事务所解除合同,可能暂时无法取得律师资格证。多位弟兄姐妹被最后通牒若再以秋雨圣约名义聚会就会被拘留。

12月31日,跨年祷告会从8:30开始,各组轮流带领一首诗歌,一段祷告,穿插分享和感恩,弟兄姐妹都很得安慰和激励。在跨入2019时,大家听到诗篇90篇改编的圣诗《永恒的主》,期盼受苦的日子与喜乐的日子一样长

2019年1月1日,迄今为止,已有多位当事人家属委托律师介入129教案,但是依然不让会见,看守所给的理由还是提审。其中有一位广东的当事人,其本人并非基督徒,涉嫌非法经营被抓至成都,其律师同样无法会见。不但见不到人,已经委托的律师还纷纷被有关部门要求解除委托。
国内简讯

河南省洛宁县一三自教会被勒令删除十诫的第一诫;早在8月,该教堂的十字架就被政府强拆了;据说《圣经》全面下架,是为了按照所谓传统文化和社会主义核心价值观重新翻译圣经,还要求所有教堂将「社会主义核心价值观」作为教理讲解。

安徽农村已经开始进入家庭搜查, 销毁一切与基督相关的东西,一些不识字的姐妹发语音彼此鼓励,不要自己主动拆掉家里的信仰装饰,结果微信帐号也被毁。城市家庭聚会堂点被取缔。

综述及代祷

新的一年会有更多的挑战,逼迫可能成为更多地方的常态,祈求主的带领和保守我们行在上帝的旨意中,凭信不凭眼见,相信上帝的美意,常怀感恩喜乐的心,以温柔的态度回应一切恶意的对待。为被囚被监禁的牧长、弟兄姐妹们祷告,求主安慰、坚固和保护他们身心灵不受伤害,为他们大开福音的门,放胆传讲福音! 求主看顾保守被迫搬家、工作受到威胁及其它各种要挟和为难中的弟兄姊妹,坚定跟随祂,为衪在地上做最美好的见证。祷告在上有权柄的不滥用权柄,执行的人不眠灭良心,更是求上帝软化他们的心,为他们开救恩的门!愿上帝的国快快降临!


秋雨圣约教会简报【2018年12月28日 晚】

今晚六点,多名警察来到程章纯传道家中搜家,拿走几本书籍、光碟、以及他的手机。来者口传告知程章纯传道由行政拘留转为刑事拘留,现已被当局关押于成都市看守所。

12月15日当局以寻衅滋事行政拘留程章纯传道14天,预计本月29日可以获得释放。根据中国的刑事诉讼法和司法部门惯有的做法,程章纯传道以及被关押的其它弟兄姐妹可能面临无期限的关押,当局可以用不断变换羁押措施拖延数年。程章纯传道面临的遭遇将会在接下来的时间证明不是最后一例。

刚刚收到消息,好几位被关押的家属被告知明天不要出门,市领导要来。

另有恩福传道被告知现在正在甄别两教会的关系,要看看有多深。

今天,在没有硝烟的中国,当你看到12月9日中国具有影响力的家庭教会被中国政府关闭,王怡牧师和他的弟兄姊妹不断被投入监牢,这一张被关押的基督徒名单告诉你中国真实景况。

秋雨教会简报(2018年12月28日)

发生“12.9”教案来,秋雨圣约教会用于传扬福音的微信群、各查经小组群、团契群组、教学群组、人道关怀群组近200个,教会会众个人微信帐号超过一半被永久封锁、限制发送信息等。微信所属腾讯公司在关闭秋雨圣约教会福音事工微信群组时不给出任何解释,对会众个人微信号的封锁采用假、大、空的告示直接封锁,剥夺申诉的机会。

教会传播福音的音频电台遭到网易公司直接删除,网易公司不仅限制公众通过网易云电台收听福音,并将教会帐号内福音资料删除,强行剥夺秋雨圣约教会对帐号内的音频资料归属权。

12月11日,教会Facebook帐号被当局劫夺,致使秋雨圣约教会弟兄姊妹受到严酷打压的信息无法向公众发布。

迫于一系列扼制秋雨圣约教会以及众弟兄姊妹信仰与阻拦众肢体传讲天国福音的手段加深加重,当局控制各种公共资源打压像秋雨圣约这样的真教会。此时,我们看到上帝大能的膀臂托举着衪的百姓,施恩赐下奇妙的作为。

秋雨圣约教会众肢体经过不懈努力开通了新兴媒介,旨在传扬主耶稣基督荣耀的福音和那永恒的盼望。

秋雨圣约归正长老教会
2018年12月28日星期五


2018年12月27日星期五

让我伤心落泪的,是早上看到C姊妹家的四个孩子,要被带回原籍宣汉,可能再也回不来了。

汉这四个孩子,家庭极其困难,父亲不在了,母亲有精神疾患,爷爷奶奶均年事已高,无力抚养,当地福利机构又根据什么奇怪规定拒收,可怜四个孩子,小的两三岁,大的也没过十岁,在家里也就是勉强活命而已。CW收养回成都,我记得当时教会轰动一阵,加上自己生的,他们家里一下子五个孩子,好不热闹,当然经济上也紧张了,W只是名普通快递员,养活一家不容易。但这都不是太大的事,神家的孩子当然神来养,大家一起养,孩子们一年多来在这里生活、上学,好开心的样子。

恼的是,这次事情开始后,魔鬼为了给C姊妹一家的属灵生命更大打击,给宣汉那边谎称孩子们落入了邪教团伙,要解救回去。今天被迫从成都出发后,C在朋友圈里哭成了泪人,再没有事情比今天这件事让我伤痛,心都被刀刺透了。


秋雨圣约教会简报

截至今天,秋雨圣约教会被当局刑事拘留16人、行政拘留4人、失踪5人,超过150人被强制抓捕进派出所长时间审讯,这其中有孕妇、儿童、老人,有近700名会友被社区、单位安保部门监视跟踪与威胁,被殴打严重致伤2人,教会23楼会堂、21楼图书馆、19楼人文学院、神学院、6楼会堂、学堂全部设施被洗劫清空。

王军弟兄和平理性地与警方交涉时遭到严重暴力攻击,头部、膝部、脚趾多处受伤,在失去会堂后,上周主日同弟兄姐妹在府南河边敬拜主基督安息之日再次被关押,同时被关押的有他刚满一岁的孩子和妻子唐双飞姊妹,在被连续审讯30多小时后王军弟兄受到行政拘留14日处罚。

12月20日,警方再次前往苏炳森长老家无证搜查,侵害家庭其他成员隐私。苏炳森长老以及其它被刑事拘留的牧师、长老、传道、会友被剥夺律师会见权利,对警方实施的行为无法具有合理性的确信,他们在被关押期间是否受到虐待、酷刑我们祈求主的怜悯。

弟兄姊妹们正常的家庭聚会受到严重干扰,当局派出大量不明身份人员24小时驻守他们的家庭或小区楼下,跟随他们外出、阻止来客到访,开放查经家庭受到高压逼迫,警方以再次开放家庭立即以“寻衅滋事罪”刑事拘留相威胁。

诚然如此,弟兄姊妹们仍持守主耶稣基督透过《圣经》所教导的不可停止聚会,仍勇敢传讲衪的真道,以多种形式聚会查考《圣经》领悟上帝的话语。

我们向上帝献上感恩,在衪的教会受到如此大的冲击时奋兴众多忠贞的儿女。

We help underserved church leaders
develop churches that transform lives and communities.

Members of Early Rain Covenant Church in Chengdu, China, gather and pray.

Editor’s note: 458 prominent Chinese house church pastors, including Early Rain Covenant Church Pastor Wang Yi, released a joint statement denouncing the Chinese government’s persecution of Christians. In this statement they vow to disobey all unjust laws relating to the worship of God and to accept the consequences. The first signed statement was released August 30, 2018 and the latest edition (11th) was released November 17, 2018.  We thank Brent Pinkall for his contribution in translating this into English.

牧者联署:为基督信仰的声明(第十一版,458位牧者)

我们是中国的一群基督徒,被至高的上帝拣选,成为祂卑微的仆人,并在各城各乡作基督教会的牧者。

我们相信并有责任教导世人,一位又真又活的三一上帝,是宇宙、世界和地上各族的创造主,人应该敬拜上帝,而不应敬拜任何人和任何事物;相信并有责任教导世人,上自国家领袖,下至乞丐囚徒,人人都犯了罪,人人都有一死,死后且有公义的审判,若没有上帝的恩典和救赎,人人都将永远沉沦;相信并有责任教导世人,那位曾被钉死在十字架上、又复活了的耶稣,是全球教会的唯一元首,是全人类的唯一救主,也是全宇宙永远的统治者和最高的审判者,一切信祂、向祂悔改的人,上帝赐给他们永远的生命和永远的国度。

从2017年9月国务院颁布新的《宗教事务管理条例》以来,到2018年2月该条例执行以后,中国各地的基督教会,在公共敬拜和信仰实践上受到了来自政府部门的程度不一的逼迫、藐视和误解,甚至包括各种企图改造和扭曲基督教信仰的行政措施。其中一些粗暴的举动,是文革结束以来前所未有的。如拆毁教会建筑的十字架,粗暴干涉基督徒家庭悬挂、张贴的十字架和春联等信仰表达,强迫和威胁教会加入官方控制的宗教组织,强迫教会悬挂国旗或歌颂世俗国家、政党,禁止基督徒的未成年子女进入教会和接受信仰教育,剥夺和取缔教会和信徒的自由聚会等。

我们认为这些诉诸公权力的不义之举,使中国社会面临严重的政教冲突。这些行为违背了人类的信仰和良心自由、也有悖于普遍的法治原则。我们有责任告诉掌权者和全社会一个坏消息,那就是对人的灵魂的一切压制和对基督教会的一切迫害,都为上帝所憎恶,并必将受到上帝公义的责备和审判。

我们更有责任向掌权者和全社会传扬一个好消息,那就是上帝的独生儿子、人类的救主和君王耶稣,为了拯救我们罪人而曾被杀,埋葬,并以神的大能从死里复活,胜过了罪恶和死亡的权势。因着爱和怜悯,上帝为包括中国人在内的一切愿意相信耶稣的人都预备了赦免和救恩。在任何时候,任何人,都可以从任何罪恶中向主悔改,归向基督,敬畏上帝,使个人得着永远的生命,使家庭和国家蒙受上帝慷慨的祝福。

为信仰和良心的缘故,也为中国的掌权者和全社会的属灵益处,并最终为着上帝的荣耀、圣洁和公义,我们向中国政府及全社会作出如下声明:

1、在中国的基督教会,无条件地相信《圣经》是上帝的话语和启示,是一切公义、伦理和救恩的来源和最高权威。任何政党的意志、政府的立法和人的命令,若直接违背《圣经》的教导,损害人的灵魂和反对教会所信仰的福音,我们有责任顺从神、而不顺从人,也有责任如此教导教会的全体成员。

2、在中国的基督教会,始终仰慕和决心走基督的十字架道路,也乐意效法那些曾为信仰而受苦、殉道的中国教会的前辈圣徒,在任何情况下,我们都情愿和有责任以和平、忍耐和怜悯之心,承受来自政府和社会一切可能的逼迫、误解和暴力。因为当教会拒绝服从恶法时,不是出于任何政治目的,不是出于怨恨和对抗,乃是单单出于福音的要求,出于对中国社会的爱。

3、在中国的基督教会,愿意顺服上帝在中国设立的掌权者,尊重政府有管理社会和人的行为的权柄。我们相信并有责任教导教会的全体信徒,政府的权柄乃是出于神的,只要政府不越过《圣经》为世俗权力所设定的界限,即不干涉和侵犯一切关乎信仰和灵魂之事,基督徒就有责任尊敬掌权者,并热心为他们的益处祷告,也切切为中国社会祷告。甚至甘愿为福音的缘故,忍受不公平的执法所带来的一切外在损失;出于对同胞的爱而情愿放弃一切原本属于我们肉身上的权利。

4、为此,我们相信并有责任教导信徒,凡在中国属于基督的真教会,必当持守政教分立的原则和基督是教会唯一元首的立场。我们声明,教会愿意在外在行为上,如其他社会团体一样,接受民政或其他政府部门的依法管理;但在任何情况下,不带领教会加入官方控制的宗教组织,不带领教会在宗教管理部门登记,也不接受任何方式的挂靠。我们也不接受因信仰的缘故而对基督教会的“取缔”和“罚款”;并愿意为着福音的缘故,预备承担一切损失乃至失去自由和生命的代价。
