Chinese authorities continued their raids during outdoor worship services of an underground Christian “house” church in Beijing the first Sunday in May.

The arrests show the intention of China’s newly appointed Secretary of Religious Affairs to “break up and crush all house churches” and bring them under the mantle of government control, a member of the church told The Epoch Times.

At least 31 Christians of Beijing’s Shouwang Church were taken away from their outdoors worshipping site by police on May 1 according to China Aid Association. People were sent to different Public Security Bureaus or police stations, among them a minister from Beijing’s New Tree Church who had joined the service of Shouwang Church. He was held by police for two full days.

This latest crackdown on Shouwang Church followed earlier police raids on Apr. 17 and 24—Easter Sunday—when several dozen church members were arrested and 500 members placed under house arrest.
