Shi Xinping, leader of a house church in Zongdian, Henan Province, was fined 50,000 yuan, or about $9,940, by the Regional Religious Affairs Committee for organising illegal activities without reporting them to the Department of Religious Affairs.
His church, the Hanzhuang Village house church, received three government notices in one week. The first warned of possible penalties, the second warned of a ban on the church and the third threatened more penalties. Members of the 200-member church, which has been in existence for more than 10 years, had refused to join the state-sanctioned Three-Self Church.
