History of Christianity in China- 中國基督教歷史 (中国基督教历史)
Undoubtedly, Buddhism has been the most popular religion in
China. The evolution of religions in China, however, being influenced by Ancestor Worship, Taoism and Confucianism
was quite complicated. Since Buddhism in China is well addressed and documented on the internet, it is our
intention to focus on another religion in China, namely, Christianity. Christianity was introduced into China as
early as the 5th century. The first
three early missionaries failed to bear fruits.
The Fourth attempt which began in 1806 and ended
around 1956, had moderate success, but it indirectly sparked the
Anti-Christian Movement in the 1920's.
Since the Communist took power in 1949, Christianity have been growing steadily
against the oppressions of the government.
Today, there are more than 30,000,000 Christians in China (according to an unofficial survey). God Bless China!
