[Open Doors USA] Chinese authorities are now taking steps in rural areas of China to intensify the ongoing crackdown on Christian gatherings often known as house churches. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is reportedly resorting to offering monetary rewards to anyone who spies on a neighbor or even family member and reports a group of believers to authorities.

In documents obtained by Bitter Winter magazine, monetary incentives
are spelled out based on the specific report and its impact. For example, a
document issued by a subdistrict in Nanyang city in China’s Henan province states
that anyone
who discovers and reports a group will receive a reward of 200 to 1,000 RMB
(about $30 to $150).

Reporting someone for making or spreading images earns a reward of $75 to to $300. And if the report has significant impact, the reward is $750 to $1,500. Turning in a believer from The Church of Almighty God (the largest Chinese new religious movement) brings $15 to $300.

To make it easy to tip off authorities and report believers, China has set up reporting boxes in villages, phone lines and websites. A village officer revealed that when a caller reports a gathering, the caller’s location will be recorded right away and the meeting venue’s address can be quickly determined,

The number to the free
tip hotline is printed on iron reporting boxes that read “Box for reporting private (meeting) venues and missionary activities.”

A reporting box was recently installed at the entrance to the village committee of Chenzhuang village in the Mangzhongqiao township (several villages constitute a township) in China’s Henan province (where the country’s underground church movement started).
