Greetings! We are China Christian Daily, the first comprehensive English Christian news website about the church in China. Thank you for your sincere love, prayers, and contributions to the Chinese church.

Worship & praise are considered one of the most important church ministries in China. This month we selected four new and old articles about music worship to give you a glimpse of the ministry in China. Some workers claim that the worship part just serves for the proclamation of the word of God afterward, and worship ministry has been greatly impacted by the Southeastern Asian style, which highlights "singing with the heart" rather than techniques. A music producer holds that it will take two generations for Chinese worship to really rise as young people embrace a better music environment and higher education. "Hip-hop," a controversial issue in the church, was once hotly debated among the Christian community after being used in an evangelistic music meeting to reach millennials.
