Why China?

 

China is a vast country with roughly 1.4 billion people.  Since the 1990s the country has seen a rapid growth in Christianity.  About 130 million Chinese are considered Christian, most of whom worship in house churches.  About 30 million of these Christians are affiliated with the only legal church, the Three-Self Patriotic Movement which is controlled by the Communist government. This state church blends political messaging with a watered down version of the gospel.

The situation for Christians  has deteriorated due to government suppression and an intolerance toward house churches. 

 

In recent years, it is evident that the Chinese government is implementing a mandate to “sinicize” every religious ideology in the country.

Sinicize (sinuh-sahyz )

to make Chinese in character or bring under Chinese influence.

This process seeks to make beliefs, including Christianity, fall in line with their interpretation of Communism. This means a steady drip of pressure, where the government increases surveillance, control and restrictions of believers. New restrictions on internet, social media, non-governmental organizations and the 2018 regulations on religion are strictly applied, increasingly spread throughout the country, and all seriously limit freedom.

ABOUT

Our Work

Hudson Taylor Ministries is involved in various ways to bring physical and spiritual help to a nation in tremendous need. Ranging from humanitarian aid assistance to translation and higher education, we strive to follow Paul’s words to Timothy:

“And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.” (2 Tim 2:2 KJV)

Hudson Taylor Ministries is a worldwide organization, with independent non-profit entities in the USA, Canada, and the UK. 

The organization feels strong ties with Hudson Taylor, the famous missionary to Mainland China during the second half of the 19th century. Our Focus is Training, Publishing, Christian Education and relief to those within the church community that have urgent needs. Our Mission is to entrust the rich inheritance from our Reformed forefathers in Europe and in North America to the growing Church in China.
