Nearly 50 more members, including 11 kids, of a Chinese megachurch closed down by the communist government in December, were arrested at two different venues last Sunday, a watchdog group has reported.
According to an update from the church, multiple homes that were hosting prayer gatherings on Feb. 24 were surrounded by police officers who ultimately interrupted the proceedings. At two of the home church services, every person in attendance was detained.
In December following the arrest of Pastor Wang, over 160 church members were arrested.
China ranks as the 27th worst country in the world when it comes to the persecution of Christians, according to Open Doors USA’s 2019 World Watch List.
Last year, Fu warned that the Chinese government is supervising a plan to rewrite the Bible in its attempt to “sinicize” Christianity.
