It’s not easy to be a Christian in China.
More and more volunteers are taking on the much-needed role of pastor to shepherd small house churches throughout China. They do this at an enormous sacrifice to themselves and their families. Most have full-time jobs and are left to pastor their flocks on their "free" time. They are overworked and struggle to keep up with their demanding schedules. But they are dedicated to serve the Lord and determine to do whatever it takes to advance His Kingdom in China.
The Holy Spirit is clearly at work in China!
Despite daily opposition and limited Biblical resources, believers continue to grow deeper in their faith and thirst to learn truth from the Scripture. Many are coming to Christ through the witness of the church and desperately need encouragement and discipleship to grow in their newfound faith.
God called Keep Believing Ministries to equip and encourage these Chinese pastors and believers by developing a web-based biblical resource library. A library for pastors to find relevant, sound material to help with their own spiritual growth and their sermon preparation. A library for believers to discover encouragement to grow spiritually and live for the Lord in their daily lives; material to help them spread the Word of God to seekers. A library to reach seekers who are looking for truth and are not finding it in the many false doctrines being spread across China.
Several years ago, KBM created an in-house Mandarin site and began posting carefully translated sermons on a number of Chinese discussion boards. KBM's China website continues to expand and is known today as The China Resource Library (JianXinZhenli.com). The library contains carefully translated Sermons, Devotionals, eBooks and Books for Free Download, with new materials being added frequently. Recently, we've begun using Google AdWords, Chinese Blogs and Forums, and WeChat (Chinese Social Media) to advertise and spread these resources.
We are excited and encouraged to see that God has brought over one million visitors from over 220 cities across China and over 102 countries around the world to visit The China Resource Library, discussion boards, blogs and WeChat.
The feedback we have received from our audience has been encouraging:
"Thank you Pastor for your teachings! Lord, I pray, please strengthen my faith, open my eyes. I want to see your army!"
"This sermon is encouraging! Thank you! God Bless you!"
"I like your teachings, very biblical, I have forwarded them to our group members (church). They all like your sermons."
"I got to know your sermons from a blog, that blog is hosted in a very popular domain in China. It is wonderful that your sermons are in Chinese, what a blessing to us!"
"After reading many of your sermons, we found those teachings are note only helpful to us Christians, but also can be understood and accepted by non-Christian friends."
"There are many Christian websites with various materials. Your blog is among those (not many) that carry good, Biblical materials. We respect you."
