On August 28, 2019, a new church for a Christian meeting point in Dongsheng Village, Baicheng, Jilin was dedicated.
Founded in 1996, the meeting venue had a chapel with an area of 100 square meters (0.02 acres) for more than 50 members, according to Baicheng Christian Council & Three-Self Patriotic Movement (CC&TSPM). By 2016, the congregation had increased to more than 200.
In January 2017, the board of deacons decided to build a new church because the old chapel had become dilapidated over the years. Elder Shan Chunping, in charge of the church, led the staff in carrying out the construction project. The new church was completed about two years later.
Performances were given by believers to show gratitude and patriotism for the 70th anniversary of the PRC.
