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.
2021 was deemed as being in the post-pandemic era after 2020, a year full of fantasy and authenticity due to the COVID-19 pandemic which would have a profound impact on the world and human history. Registered churches encountered sudden lockdowns and reopening from time to time due to the virus, while house churches were restricted from having large gatherings and instead met online. The campaign for the Sinicization of Christianity remained ongoing in official churches, but regulations on religious management were released to narrow down religious freedom. Church leaders were seeking new ways to renovate ecclesiology and to pastor their congregations during the strange period. As we embrace 2022, the editorial team of China Christian Daily has selected the top 10 Christian news stories of 2021 based on the number of views, keyword searches, shares, and prominence of articles.
You can also read trending news as well as features about rural pastors, the possible church transformation, and an individual's testimony. We also add a new column on the book release regarding Christianity in China.
