In China a three phase plan has been exposed that is an effort to shut down all underground Christian churches. The plan is to take place on Hainan Island, the smallest province in China off of the southern coast. Churches have already begun to be closed on the island. The officials have closed these churches claiming that there is “cult activity” taking place. The first phase was from January 2012-June 2012 when the State Administration for Religious Affairs investigated house churches and made reports on them. The second phase is currently happening where unregistered churches are encouraged to sign up to become a part of the TSPM (Three-Self Patriotic Movement – a church system). Come 2015 they will begin to shut down the churches that do not comply with the rules of the TSPM.
