A forum titled "Christian Studies: China's Position and World Vision" in 2022 was held online.

Hosted by the Center for the Study of Christianity at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CSC) on October 29-30, the symposium was organized by the Guangzhong Research Base of CSC and co-organized by the Department of Philosophy of Sun Yat-sen University.

Based on the two different perspectives, in two sub-venues attendees talked about "China's Position in Christian Studies" and "World Vision in Christian Studies". Experts and scholars shared their views and made academic discussions on topics such as "Historical Perspective of Christian Studies in China", "Dialogue and Mutual Immersion between Christianity and Chinese Culture", "Theological Theory and Reconstruction", and "Religion and Cultural Construction".
