What a difference a decade makes! Over the last ten years the nation of China and the Chinese Church have changed significantly; so has the world. It's a new China. It's a new Church. It's a new world. China's Cultural Revolution that ended in the late 1970s was followed by a 20-year-long spiritual harvest spanning the 1980s and 1990s. It was an awakening that many have called the greatest revival in history; but now we must face the reality that this phenomenal harvest is over. The year 2000 marked a turning point, the dawn of a new era.
When I returned to Beijing recently, I couldn't help but think of a meeting in that same city ten years prior. Eighty servants of God had gathered for what would be an extraordinary time of prayer and in-depth discussions. The assembly included the main families of the house church, pastors from the Three Self Church, and the entrepreneurial and educated leaders from China's emerging urban church. Following that meeting I communicated with Brent Fulton of China Source to glean from his wisdom and verify facts and figures about the historic move of God that had been happening across the world's most populous nation. At that time we were working independently; now Brent and I are working together to issue a new report, bringing to the world the realities of the current situation and bringing to the Church in China some crucial words of encouragement.
On my latest visit to China I was especially heartened in meeting with emerging leaders from the Beijing Forum and other groups. I listened with great interest to their stories - heartfelt accounts filled with a passion and determination to raise up a new generation from the 4/14 Window to bless the nation of China. I was repeatedly reminded that so much has changed over the past decade. This is indeed a new China in which a new Church has emerged in a new world. We are honored to bring the details to your attention in the report that follows.
