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.

February 1 marks the 2021 Chinese New Year or also known as the Lunar New Year, China's most important festival for family reunions. While the COVID-19 pandemic worsened during the mass traffic period, most churches celebrated the grand festival through virtual services and some in person. However, the Xuzhou chained woman incident broke out, causing an unprecedented rage on the Internet, particularly among civilians. Chinese Christians spoke out their voices on the controversial event, exploring how we as followers of Christ should respond to such social issues in love and the truth. 

You can also read trending news as well as features about the declining megachurches, recalling the past history of Weifang from a female missionary's angle, the status quo of the Nujiang Great Canyon 
where western missionaries sacrificed their lives and financial difficulties of male seminarians. We also add a new column on the book release regarding Christianity in China.
