On November 12, 2019, a new church was dedicated in Taobei District, Baicheng, Jilin province.
Originally founded more than 90 years, Liaobei Lu Church only owned four bungalows in 1983 when China implemented the policy of religious freedom. The new construction of the church building took four years to complete at the cost of 11 million yuan. The new building covers an area of 7,800 square meters (1.9 acres) with a floor area of 4,000 square meters (1 acres). While being engaged in the construction, the congregation was also involved in social service. During the service, Elder Sun Yongqin who is in charge of the church, gave a report as part of the dedication.
