Chinese Christians Possibly Kidnapped by Police

Ad Feedback

A human rights group now fears nine leaders from a Chinese megachurch have been kidnapped by local authorities.
    
Leaders from Fushan Church were headed to Beijing, China, to protest the destruction of their church last month by security officers.

No one has heard from them since Sept. 25, according to the ChinaAid Association.
    
Authorities destroyed 17 buildings in a factory complex where Fushan Church was housed. Christians were attacked while they were sleeping and more than 100 were injured.
    
Human rights activists say Chinese House members are peaceful, but still persecuted because they refuse to compromise their faith.

"The government wants to exercise total control of the Church and to order the Church not to exercise their faith, especially to practice their faith by sharing the Gospel wherever they are," said Bob Fu, president of ChinaAid. "And that's the core reason why the Church is under attack."

Fu said Christians are under extra scrutiny now because of the 60th anniversary celebrations for China's Communist regime.

"We call on the international community to continue protesting the brutal treatment of Christians and the suppression of religious freedom in China," he urged.
