Protestants in China [electronic resource]: Growing Spiritual Movement

China's economy is booming-and so is its Christian community. This program examines the rise of the country's nondenominational Protestant movement, its basic structure and organization, and its relationship with the government. Spotlighting new, moderate religious freedoms in Chinese society, the film visits Christian churches in Nanjing Province and interviews a number of ministers and congregation members. Cao Sheng-Jie, President of the Chinese Christian Council, discusses building a "truly Chinese church," while students at a prominent state-supported seminary describe their reasons for converting to Christianity and entering the ministry. The role of Christianity in President Hu Jintao's "harmonious society" is also explored.

Leaders from Beijing's Christian Council, the China Christian Council, and other groups are featured.
