Nantai Church sits in Nantai Town, Haicheng, China's northeastern Liaoning province.
In a Sunday service held on October 7, 2018, the church was flooded with believers. Rev. Sun Shuo, who has served for over ten years after graduation from Northeast China Theological Seminary, delivered a sermon on "Guard Your Heart".
Its sermons are often featured with the combination of the biblical truth with the traditional Chinese culture and believers' life and career. Excellent Confucian classics are often quoted in sermons, giving the congregation a "Chinese feeling".
Meanwhile, the church is active in joining social service like blood drives and clothes donation to oriented poor areas.
Despite the fact its other rural locations were recently demolished after the revised regulations on religious affairs came into effect last February, the church shows a positive attitude. It visits elderly believers unable to go to church at their homes and convey Sunday messages to them.
Every year, it also organizes a trip, financially assists some poor workers' children who attend universities, deal with believers' family conflicts and teenagers' Internet addiction.
It also joins activities with other religions like Buddhism and Taoism and has a 40-strong band that also includes non-believers.
