Sister Gao, one of the church staff, tells CCD that the church construction started in March 2016 with an initial fund of only 8000 yuan. Christians from the church and surrounding churches participated in the construction. As of now, the construction cost more than 200,000 yuan, leaving a debt exceeding 20,000 yuan. 

With around 100 registered members, the church has a regular attendance of twenty or thirty people in every service.
