Members of The Church of Almighty God recount their ordeals trying to evade CCP’s persecution amid the coronavirus outbreak.
The Church of Almighty God remains one of the primary targets of China’s religious persecution, as its members are given hefty sentences for practicing their faith.
Jiangsu and Liaoning provinces continue reducing the number of places for believers to assemble, barring state-run and house churches alike.
To eradicate The Church of Almighty God, the CCP goes to great lengths to deprive it of financial means, including vicious harassment of its members.
Since the CCP launched its campaign to eliminate publications “damaging the country’s unity” last year, many books are no longer available to students in China.
Members of religious groups designated as “evil cults” by China’s regime are being “transformed” through indoctrination while they serve their sentences.
CCP uses many bullying methods to force unregistered believers to join the official Three-Self Church: from direct threats to extorting landlords who rent to them.
Labeled as most wanted criminals just for their faith, Church of Almighty God members are hunted by the regime, forced into hiding at great risk to their lives.
To implement direct orders from President Xi Jinping, the Jiangsu provincial government started in July a new targeted campaign in five cities.
