Chinese Christians Blocked from Attending Lausanne Congress

Summary: DUBLIN, October 15 MPBS24/7 REPORT From CDN – As organizers prepared for the opening of the Third Lausanne International Congress on World Evangelization tomorrow in Cape Town, South Africa, Chinese police threatened or detained some 200 delegates who had hoped to attend. House church groups in China had raised significant funds to pay the expenses of their chosen delegates, a source told Compass. When house church member Abraham Liu Guan and four other delegates attempted to leave China via Beijing airport on Sunday (Oct. 10), authorities refused to allow them through customs, reported the Chinese-language Ming Pao News. Officials detained one delegate and confiscated the passports of the other four until Oct. 25, the closing date of the conference. China’s State Administration for Religious Affairs and the Ministry of Public Security had notified border control staff that the participation of Chinese Christians in the conference threatened state security and ordered them not to allow delegates to leave, Liu told U.S.-based National Public Radio. The China Aid Association reported that on Wednesday (Oct. 13), approximately 1,000 police officers were stationed at Beijing International Airport to restrain an estimated 100 house church members who planned to leave for the Congress via Beijing. China accused the Lausanne committee of not issuing an invitation to China’s state-controlled church, but according to the Ming Pao report, delegates were required to sign a document expressing their commitment to evangelism, which members of the state-controlled churches could not do because of regulations such as an upper limit on the number of people in each church, state certification for preachers, and the confinement of preaching to designated churches in designated areas.
