The China Gospel Fellowship (Chinese: 中华福音团契) also known as the Tanghe Fellowship (唐河团契) is one of the largest evangelical Christian religious movements in China,[1] a house church network formed in the province of Henan.[2] In 2002, the Eastern Lightning Chinese Christian cult kidnapped 34 of the Fellowship's leading members and held them for two months.[3] In 2004, more than 100 leaders of the church were arrested as part of governmental raids against unregistered churches.[4]
