A recent surge of police action against churches in China has raised concerns the government is getting even tougher on unsanctioned Christian activity.
Among those arrested are a prominent pastor and his wife, of the Early Rain Covenant Church in Sichuan. Both have been charged with state subversion.

One Christian in Chengdu told the BBC: “I’m lucky they haven’t found me yet.”
China is officially atheist, though says it allows religious freedom. -BBC
