This is a blog about our family and our “Vision for China.” Our family has been called of God to reach China with the gospel. Our vision is to evangelize, disciple, plant churches, and train leaders among the Chinese people. We have been sent out of Morningside Baptist Church to plant churches in mainland China. We are serving through Open Door Baptist Missions, a mission agency that is a ministry of our local church.
The names and places have been removed because of the persecution that continues for the Chinese house churches. If you would like to get in contact with us, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For centuries China has been hidden in darkness. It has been dominated by Confucianism, Daoism, and Ancestral worship. An ancient Daoist proverb says that there is a way to peace and balance, but it cannot be known.
Jesus said, “ I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” –John 14:6
In the Chinese Bible the same word used for Dao in Daoism is used in this verse. Dao means the way. Jesus declares that there is a way and that it can be known. He, Himself, is the way to everlasting life and a peace that passes all understanding.
He is . . .
道路 The way
真理 The truth
生命 The life
