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.

The name “rural church” is given because of its special location. When we talk about the rural church, we always believe that it has a poor environment, a small number of people, insufficient equipment, and a scarcity of preachers. However, with the diversified development of the times in recent years, rural churches have improved and changed in terms of number, quality, meeting mode, ministry and external environmental conditions. Now, we take this chance to review the past and analyze their changes up to the present.
