Topic - South China Church

South China Church is an Evangelical denomination of China. In 1990 or 1991 it formed as an offshoot of Peter Xu's "All Ranges Church" which is also known as the Born Again Movement. Its former head Gong Shengliang was sentenced to a death penalty, but this sentence has since been commuted to life imprisonment. The South China Church is a banned church deemed a cult by authorities. The main criticism outside of that is that they are fundamentalist and charismatic. The official hostility to the church has garnered it support among several groups concerned with religious persecution. It is an "underground church" so membership figures are uncertain, but most estimates state it has tens of thousands of members. - Source: Wikipedia
