 100 Chinese House Church leaders arrested


100 Chinese House Church leaders arrested

The China Aid Association has learned that more than 100 leaders of the China Gospel Fellowship (CGF) were arrested Friday, June 11.
The arrests took place at Wuhan City, Hubei province, in east-central China while the church leaders were meeting together. Eyewitness said about 50 police officers believed to be from the Public Security Bureau raided the meeting at about 2 p.m. and arrested all of the participants, including one of the senior CGF leaders, 39-year-old Xing Jinfu.
He had been arrested at least three times previously for his church activities. In 1996 he was sentenced to three years of re-education through labor for his “illegal preaching.”
The location of those arrested is still unknown. On the same day, well-known CGF pastor Shen Xianfeng was also put under house arrest in a residential area of Wuhan City after police offices searched his house.
The CGF, established in the mid-1980s, is one of the five major Chinese house church groups with an estimated membership of 5 million.
