Greetings! We are China Christian Daily, the first comprehensive English Christian news website about the church in China. Thank you for your sincere love, prayer for and contributions to the Chinese church.

Since the  16th century when Christianity truly took root in China, massive churches were built in the great land of China, whether in a western style or with Chinese characteristics. Some of them still remain to tell the stories of God's love and grace. We have selected some church buildings to give you a glimpse. You can also read September's trending news as well as features about how to interpret Christianity in China and a story about a church-run primary school.
