MIDLAND, Texa, -- Recently, an unprecedented letter, signed by nearly 400 Chinese church leaders who risked everything, including their freedoms, their churches, and their lives, was released. Called A Declaration for the Sake of the Christian Faith, it openly condemns the Chinese government's persecution of Christians and reiterates an obligation to continue teaching the Bible regardless of government oppression.
