There has been a flood of conversions to Christianity in China for both its Catholic and Protestant sects, according to Asia News.


Since April, more than 200 church crosses have been forcibly removed by the provincial government in Zhejiang, China.

Chinese authorities are escalating their attacks on churches since they perceive the growth of Christianity as a threat to their communist regime, according to The Washington Free Beacon.

Nanle County Church Pastor Shaojie Zhang was sentenced on July 4 to 12 years in prison in China, according to International Christian Concern.

Only one week after Chinese Christians in Wenzhou City fought back against Communist attempts to remove the cross from the roof of their church, government authorities returned and destroyed the cross, according to International Christian Concern.

Without warning early Wednesday morning, hundreds of government agents armed with a crane but without any legal documents forced their way into the BaiXiang GuanTou Church with the intent of removing the cross from the building's roof, according to International Christian Concern.

Thousands of Christians who worship in private "underground" churches across China are now facing public persecution, according to International Christian Concern.

Thousands of Chinese Christians in Wenzhou have once again formed a blockade to prevent the Communist government from demolishing the Sanjiang Christian Church, according to International Christian Concern.

Thousands of Christians formed a human shield around the newly-constructed Sanjiang Christian Church in Zhejiang Province after several hundred police officers with bulldozers threatened to demolish it, according to International Christian Concern.

Last month, Chinese police abruptly abducted a "Three-Self" pastor from his own state sanctioned church in Henan Province, according to International Christian Concern.

China Aid reports raids on two house churches and a home Bible study in Xinjiang last month.

China's closure of a dozen churches in Hainan Province while threatening to close many more strongly suggests that the Communist government has a clandestine plan to eliminate all unregistered house churches, according to the China Aid Association.

Incidents of Christian persecution in China rose by 42 percent last year as compared with 2011, according to a report by China Aid, a Texas-based human rights group.

Visitation rights for the family of a prominent Chinese house church leader incarcerated in Xinjiang have been severely curtailed, according to International Christian Concern.

The secretary of the Central Politics and Law Commission said China would end the practice of sending its citizens to labor camps without the benefit of a trial, but critics remain skeptical.

A high profile house church Christian in Shanghai who has been continually targeted for government harassment was just handed an extra-judicial sentence to a forced labor camp.

The government of Mengka Township in Yunnan Province has a long history of suppressing the spread of Christianity by persecuting missionaries and banning personal Bibles.

Police in Xinjiang recently raided a house church Sunday School, holding 70 children and their teachers for questioning while detaining seven other teachers.
