Reformation 500 Conference Voices: Bill Nyman

It is my belief that the Chinese church is mature and is finding its dependence on Christ, and does not require the assistance once provided by the church in America. The church in America needs to recognize the strengths and maturity of the Chinese church—the church in America needs to step back and release the Chinese church to be the church and serve without unneeded dependence on the American church.

Why Is Gospel Renewal Important for the Average Chinese Person?

These stories help highlight why CP exists and why we pray the Reformation 500 convention has an impact. We desire to equip pastors and church leaders in order for the Chinese church to be renewed in the historic gospel of grace, because through such gospel renewal, churches become better able to engage and love their neighbors, opening their doors to those seeking answers in Christ.

With Christians All Around the World – A Chinese National Ministering to Internationals

I had been serving in Chinese ministry at Second Presbyterian Church since 1996. In 2005, as more and more Christians from other countries came and joined the church, the Chinese ministry was turned into a multinational, diverse group called International Christian Fellowship.

So when all the hearts begin to pray for China globally, that will bring new revival to Chinese churches.

Because the government confiscated all of the Bibles, there was only a single copy remaining. But later on we got a complete printed Bible because we had some connections with some overseas preachers. There was an incident that happened in China because some foreigners donated a lot of Bibles to try to ship into China, but it was impossible, so those [Bibles] went into the ocean. But a fisherman found those Bibles and took them out. So even though the government customs blocked them, those Bibles got into China.

Time with a Living Legacy of the Chinese Church - The Personal Story

My parents converted in 1943, and in 1946 a worship gathering started in their house. My family had two worship gatherings. My mother loved the Lord very much. Many people who were possessed by demons would send to my house for my family and my mother to pray for them, and then they would get help. Actually when I was a young boy, I saw a lot of miracles happening in other people.
