(Qingyang, Gansu—June 2, 2016) Public security officials from China’s northwestern Gansu province forced an entire church congregation to register their identification cards and used threats to keep them from holding services last Sunday.

Officials raided Huoshi Fellowship, not to be confused with the recently persecuted Huoshi Church in Guizhou province, on Sunday, filed all of the information on the church members’ identification cards and warned them not to continue meeting.

China Aid will continue to report on this story once more information becomes available.
