On May 16, Zhenba Christian Church in Hanzhong City, Shaanxi Province held its dedication ceremony.

Zhenba County is located in the spine of the Daba Mountains. According to historical records, Christianity began to take shape in Zhenba County in the 1820s. However, they never had a fixed venue and believers had to worship in churches located in Xixiang, Chenggu, and Hantai, which were almost 100 miles away. With the later concerns regarding the location of these churches and the support of the city's religious departments to establish the county's own church, the church bought 3,000 square meters of land to build a church.

In March 2017, the church was completed with nearly 1,000 square meters of building space and almost 2 millions of RMB were invested for the entire church.
