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.

As the coronavirus outbreak continues, churches in China have had to be closed down and start ministries online. Facing both network restrictions and live streaming challenges, the church strives to explore ways to feed its flock. Meanwhile, the notorious Korean Shincheonji cult, which is said to have 20,000 members in China, has taken advantage of its systematic online network to seduce people into the organization. Despite difficulties amidst the epidemic, believers are holding on to their faith through family worship and devotionals.

You can also read trending news as well as features about the famous coronavirus whistleblower's Li Wenliang and about a pastor couple's testimony in fighting the terrible virus. At the bottom, we invite you to write your prayers and words of encouragement for the Chinese people during this difficult time.
