China: Police Continue to Raid House Churches

China Aid Association reports that on July 11, members of the Public Security Bureau and local policemen raided a house in Jianhu City, Jiangsu Province, taking away eight people and injuring two others who were present. The leader of the church, Pastor Zeng Zhengliang, had been a pastor for the Chinese government’s Committee of Three-Self Patriotic Movement, but had left to found a house church following disagreements with the government over theology. Elsewhere in the country, in Anhui province and the Inner Mongolia Autonomous region, at least five house church members were detained this week for their religious activity.
