House Church Raided, 6 Elders Taken Away in China’s Guangxi

07/12/2020 China (International Christian Concern) –  On July 5 around 4 pm, dozens of officials from the Ethnic and Religious Affairs agency raided the Enguang church in Guanxi region’s Guiling city.

The house church was having its worship during that time at a hotel, when local government officials and police barged in and grabbed the microphone to denounce the gathering. Worshippers were asked to show their IDs. Six elders were taken to Qixing police station, after they were first placed in a room along with other church staff and interrogated.

According to China Aid, as of 11:00 a.m. Beijing time on July 6, four of the six elders were still being held at the police station. Christians gathered outside the public security bureau to sing hymns as they waited for their return.
