Nine Significant Features of the Chinese House Church

Or would we, with total faith and complete abandonment of our own feeble wisdom, scrap the idea of a committee and any other plans and simply lift our staff and cross the sea as God had commanded, trusting in Him to perform a miracle?

May we all learn to trust more in the Lord than ever before by seeing what He has done and continues to do in China.

The Chinese House Church didn’t have a choice; it had to accept the latter. May we all learn to trust more in the Lord than ever before by seeing what He has done and continues to do in China. May we all stop looking at the teachings of the Word of God through the limited scope of our own culture. May the mysteries that have brought the underground House Church in China through the most turbulent time in China’s history teach us to rely on God always for everything. If the sovereign Creator of the universe can use the evil schemes of man to bring about the greatest spiritual harvest in history, surely He can provide for us as we walk in obedience to Him one day at a time.
