What happened after the Zhengzhou, Henan authorities posted the Illegal Religious Meeting Violation Notice in Zhengzhou, China that was translated in a previous post:
(Pray for Us News) Brothers and sisters throughout China, we are the Zhengzhou Gaoxin District Christian Dali Church. Our church at 11 AM on the morning of September 9 (just after Sunday services had concluded) , twenty people from the Zhengzhou Gaoxin District Wutong （梧桐） Street Committee Office together with the local police station and the District government leaders responsible for religious affairs forced their way into our church and designated the meeting of our church congregation as an “illegal meeting” and on the spot posted a notice to that effect.
Our entire congregation all rejected that argument and stated that our congregation and our place of worship were legal.
First, we continue to be believers and we will not cease to gather.
Second, our gathering is legal and is protected by the relevant state laws and regulations.
That group of twenty people left.
On the afternoon of September 9th, the Zhengzhou Gaoxin District Management Committee, personnel from the Zhengzhou City Religious Affairs Bureau, together with the local Wutong Street Committee Office together with one hundred urban management enforcement plainclothesmen, gathered at the base of our building. They had intended to break into our church and to destroy the furnishings in our church. However, the brothers and sisters discovered them in time and a large group of brothers and sisters hurried to the church. By the time it got dark, several hundred brothers and sisters had gathered at the church. Everybody prayed, chanted psalms, and guarded the church as more and more brothers and sisters hurried to the church from all directions.
At about 9 PM, brothers and sisters who had come later were blocked at the elevators by the plainclothesmen and were not able to enter the church. Meanwhile, the several hundred believers gathered in the church had locked the large church door to prevent the plainclothesmen from breaking in.
The standoff continued until 11 PM when those plainclothesmen (there were all big guys dressed in black plainclothes) realized that there was no way that they could get into the church and more and more brothers and sisters of the congregation kept coming. Therefore they gradually dispersed.
