On January 24, 2018, Xiamen Xinqu Church released a WeChat message to remind its congregation to guard against active members of the Korean-based cult group "Shincheonji Church" who are evangelizing near the church.
The church said that the cult "Shincheonji Church of Jesus the Temple of the Tabernacle of the Testimony" (SCJ) preached its belief by first establishing relationships with church members and then bringing them to engage in their activities and Bible studies. The next step was to let them participate in a so-called "Bible training program" against Christian doctrines lasting from three months to one year.
It added that the cult distorted the Bible and didn't claim the real name for itself when reaching people.
Scattered in 75 countries, the cult originates from South Korea, with over 100 branches and 50,000 members in China. Before, churches like Beijing Gangwashi Church, Hangzhou Chongyi Church, and Tianjin Shanxi Lu Church experienced its intrusion.
