Three-Self Seminary in China Celebrates CCP’s Centennial
05/14/2021 China (International Christian Concern) – A state-sanctioned seminary in Southeast China is planning an evening of celebration for the 100th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s founding.
According to the event poster shared by the Chinese Christian Fellowship of Righteousness, Fujian Seminary will host the celebration at its auditorium from 7 to 9 pm on May 15, 2021.
Seminary students are heavily involved in the performances, as the school plans to showcase its appreciation for the CCP. From songs, dances, play, to sign language, the program features the so-called “Red Songs,” praising the CCP for all it has done for the country.
Fujian Seminary is not the only state-vetted Three-Self seminary to woo the CCP through a series of activities. Zhongnan Theological Seminary in Hubei province also held a patriotism study trip in March, sending the whole school to visit Hong’an, an important historic site of communists’ battle against the nationalists.
With Beijing’s intensified crackdown on Christianity, especially towards house churches, the Three-Self churches across the country have ramped up their initiatives to celebrate the CCP’s birthday in order to exhibit their loyalty to the central government. Some churches also start incorporating the CCP’s ideology in their sermons.
