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. Later, Wheaton College's Dean of the School of Mission, Ministry, and Leadership, Ed Stetzer, wrote an article in Christianity Today, emphasizing the need of international Christians not to neglect the sufferings of Chinese believers.

Standing in firm agreement with these sentiments, overseas Chinese Christians wrote the letter below to vocalize their support of those persecuted by the Chinese state, and now they extend the invitation to sign to church leaders worldwide. If you work with a church or Christian organization, please take a quick moment to read over and sign this statement:

On October 18th of this year Standing Springs Baptist Church in Simpsonville, SC will be 200 years old.  Standing Springs was started as an “arm” of Fork Shoals Baptist Church.  It was organized on September 18, 1818 and the first service was held on October 18, 1818.

There were 10 charter members.  Arguless, Elizabeth and Rachel Henderson, William Mayhall, Rhonda Moore, Thomas, Delila and James Richardson and Christopher and Hannah Robbins.

The church met in the home of Mr. James Cox for over a year.  He gave the church three acres of land and the first building was erected in 1819.  In 1837 a new building was constructed further from the road.  This building has been remodeled many times over the years but the footings and beams are still in use today.  The church facilities are in the same location but the acreage has grown to over 42 acres with several buildings.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 11, 2018 /Christian Newswire/ -- In the wake of over 3,000 innocent people being murdered on 9/11/2001, media, politicians, and every day Americans asked the question: "Why did they do this?"

The answer lies in the narrative of Muhammad's life; his call to jihad, and the belief that acts of terror will result in mass conversion to Islam. Muslim terrorists read these words, believe them, and obey them.

Here are a few of the examples of Muhammad's words that terrorists believe and obey. Multiple references are provided for those who wish to confirm their validity.
