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.
East or West, which is best? The history of Christianity in China must relate to the West as the gospel was introduced by foreign missionaries into the country. An American Chinese church history professor explores how Christianity took root in China owing to his Christian family heritage, urging the Chinese church to feel proud of its accomplishments and learn from the missionaries. However, a Chinese pastor, calls on Christians in China to be cautious about overseas theological education and preaching because the West doesn't share the same situation as the East. She adds that many questions arise as most church history material is written from the Western-centered perspective. The Chinese must balance westernization and localization.
