‘Explosive growth’ of Christianity is changing China

The meteoric growth of Christianity in China’s state-registered churches is beginning to affect society and industry, according to a BBC Radio 4 Crossing Continents report. The General Manager of an industrial valves factory run on Christian lines told Christopher Landau that Christian staff ‘have a much better heart’ and are more reliable employees. Landau learnt that over a hundred academics at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences are studying the impact of Christian entrepreneurs in the Weng Jo area and at the role of Christianity in promoting China’s economic development. He also witnessed the contribution churches are making to elderly people’s care. Churches themselves, such as St Paul’s Nanjing, are growing at a phenomenal rate and impacting people of all ages, Landau found.
