(Dongguan, Guangdong—Aug. 25, 2020) Police, state security officers, and ethnic and religious affairs bureau officials raided Guangzhou’s Bible Reformed Church. They accused Christians of “spreading evil religion.” 

Authorities interrupted a Bible study, which had more than 10 attendees, and took three Christians, including Minister Yang Jun, to the police station. Officials released two individuals that night but detained Minister Yang for a day. They alleged he had been “showing off and swindling.”

Pastor Huang Xiaoning appealed to authorities on behalf of Bible Reformed Church. He said government representatives “can come at any time and ‘enforce the law,’ and we, at any time, might ‘be executed’ [Editor’s note: This means they might be subject to law enforcement at any time], but our worship will never cease.”
