Seventh-day Adventist Church

Officially, Adventist congregations in China are part of the Three-Self Church. Those who kept their distinctiveness are now persecuted.

On August 14, 2021, the court of Kaili city, Qiandongnan Miao and Dong autonomous prefecture, Guizhou province, sentenced Zhang Wenying (female) and three other clergy of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Kaili city to heavy jail sentences. Zhang should spend 12 years in jail, and her co-defendants from 3 to 6 years.

The Adventist clergy were sentenced for “fraud.” Seventh-day Adventism is not labeled as “heterodox teachings”, and is theoretically allowed to exist in China, as long as its congregations accept to be part of the government-controlled Three-Self Church.
