(CHRISTIAN EXAMINER) — In the face of an ongoing Communist crackdown, pastors in China have vowed to continue preaching the Gospel, even if it costs them their lives.

Aaron Ma, a representative of Open Doors’ Ministry in China, told The Christian Post in an email on Thursday that the watchdog group has so far heard of one case of Bible burning in the country.

“In this case, the authority confiscated belongings of the churches (including Bibles) and burnt them all,” Ma said.
