 House church leader dies in China


The revered leader of China's "house church" movement, Allen Yuan Xiangchen, has died in Beijing at 91.
He died in a hospital in the capital from pneumonia-related organ failure and is survived by his wife and six children.

The house church movement in China is believed to include tens of millions of participants who worship without the sanction of government.

Yuan was invited by the White House to attend a breakfast prayer meeting in Washington, but turned down the offer because he did not want to worship with Chinese members of the official church.

One more testimony to us.

He drew his line in the sand, and now sits above with the Great crowd of witnesses, Heb12:1, watching and waiting for us.

I think when we see more views on posts like this, then on entertainers, then, maybe we've "got a grip".

He is the same pastor who signed the open letter that made the claim that "Heavenly Man" Brother Yun mispresents himself in the western world.

He was also featured in the DVD, "The Cross in China" available from
It is a documentary on the testimony of the Chinese church.
