Second, commemorate the 200th anniversary of Robert Morrison entering China (Protestant Church entered China) --- “Today’s Chinese churches are the fruits bore through the sacrifices of the early day missionaries, who scattered the seeds of the gospel.
For 200 years, Chinese churches have received too much grace from God; we hope that we can not only receive God’s grace, but we need to repay this great love of God; we need to “receive the gospel, proclaim the gospel”, walk into world missions stage, participate in world mission movement.
