On October 5, the local Christians of Gulonggang Town of Xingguo County, Ganzhou, Jiangxi, held a thanksgiving ceremony to celebrate the completion of the first church in the town. About 400 church co-workeres and believers from Wenzhu, Ji'an, Shangrao, Yichun and Ganzhou witnessed this moment.

Zhong Fujin, the head of the church, said that Fengshui culture dominates the town and the first Fengshui village --- Sanliao Village is located here.

In the early 1990s, the Gospel entered into the area and believers grew. During the next decades, the church held services at the homes of believers in turns while also suffering from the cults.

In 2012, the church staff bought a land approved by the local authority at the expense of 70,000 yuan. One of the staff tells CCD that the reason why they chose the site was that two thirds of the congregation reside in surrounding places and moreover, the environment is good.

Due to a lack of enough funds, the construction hadn't begun until June 2014. Two years later, the church has been completed, costing 1.2 million yuan in total. Currently, the congregation reached over 100 people and two preachers and one seminary graduate serve here.
