It was with great sadness that we learnt about the passing of Rev. Dr. Billy Graham. A true man of God and one of the most influential Christian leaders in the world, Rev. Billy Graham has transformed tens of millions of people's life through his gracious lifetime service.
We have been particularly grateful for Rev. Graham's concerns and commitment to the Christians in China. His family and he have been dear friends to the Church in China over the decades through dynamic dialogues and collaborations. Rev. Graham's faithfulness and humility have been inspirations to countless Chinese Christians, and his messages of love and hope will remain in the hearts of many and continue to be guidance in their spiritual lives for long even after his time.
On behalf of CCC&TSPM and Christians in China, we mourn together with Christians all around the world over the loss of him. We shall remember his faithful witness and think of his family in our prayer.
