Around 130 million Chinese are Christians. Of those, 30 million associate with the Three-Self Patriotic Movement. (This is the only legal church, which is controlled by the communist government.) If you are caught being a Christian or going to church in China you will likely face imprisonment. 



China is ranked 17th in the persecution ranking. China has some of the most attacked/closed churches in the world. If someone converts to Christianity, it's very common for family members and the community to threaten them. The Chinese Communist Party sees Christianity as a threat. They believe the Catholic Church helped destroy communism in Poland. Making Christianity a serious threat that needs to be suppressed.Please pray for Christians and missionaries in China.
