China Christian Council

China Christian Council (CCC)

China Christian Council

The China Christian Council is one of two organizations (the other is Three Self Patriotic Movement) with which a Protestant church in China must register to become a Three Self church and be considered legal.

China Christian Council"China Christian Council," which implies a gathering that represents Christians in China, is a misnomer, not without intent, since most of the Christians in China (see underground church) do not belong to the China Christian Council, which isn't even a "council" per se but an executive body that rubberstamps and executes the policies of the Chinese Communist Party.

China Christian Council and Three Self Patriotic Movement comprise the liang hui, the two "Christian" facades ("liang hui" literally means "two organizations") from behind which the Chinese Communist Party tries to distort and suppress Christianity in China.

China Christian Council also manages China's dozen or so Bible colleges and sole seminary, Nanjing Union Theological Seminary, all bastions of heresy and Communist Party propaganda, as well as China's sole legal Bible printer, Nanjing Amity Printing Company, which supplies Bibles only to the Three Self churches where they are used as bait to identify and track Christians (see Christian persecution in China).

Founded in 1980, China Christian Council was headed until 2012 by "Bishop" Kuang-hsun, or "K.H." Ting (above), an atheist who opposed proselytizing, didn't believe in Christ's redemption or any Chinese going to hell, etc. Until his death in 2012, Ting faithfully served the Chinese Communist Party.

In 2018, China Christian Council and Three Self Patriotic Movement threw off any pretense of being Christian by jointly declaring the Sinicization of Christianity.
