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 coronavirus outbreak in late January, church buildings in China have been closed down and congregations have survived through the difficult time by gathering online and  finding encouragement from overseas. However, the pandemic has spread to the rest of the world and Christians in other countries have also suffered. Grateful for what they have received from foreign believers, Chinese Christians have joined in the global fight against the virus by praying and by sending donations of supplies and money.  Meanwhile, in spite of restrictions, domestic churches have been showing to be the salt and light through serving others.
