Time passes by, along with the developing of YanJi, we have witnessed the city has learnt how to from nothing to everything and from small to big. YanJi’s church was funded in October, 1911. it has experienced its first worship, a re-construction and a close down. Till 1981.9, the church was once more opened.


To commemorate the first 100 year of Yanji Church, and its re-use for the first 30 years. The current dean of the church, pastor Liu Doufeng has organized prays for different language including Korean, Mandarin, English and also special arrangement for disabled people. There are 5 pastors, 5 priest, 16 teachers and more than 500 lay-workers. There are more than 4000 believers.

Because there is a Korean Minority Autonomous Prefecture near Jilin, therefore, Yanji church is a church full of Korean culture. As mentioned, they have different language for prayers. And since 1999, they have organized a publicity department involving:


1. Provide financial aid to other churches for over 12 years now, such as Inner Mongolia, Shanxi, Yunnan, Sichuan, Guizhou, Hainan etc. provinces. And they have helped building up more than 60 churches as well.


2. Provide financial aids for more than 200 theological students and ministers for the last 10 years in Inner Mongolia, Shanxi, Yunnan, Sichuan, Guizhou, Hainan, etc.


3. Provide financial aid to more than 100 children in Yunnan, Guizhou, and Sichuan etc.


4. Provide financial aid to poor area, helping others to relive their living expense.


5. Relive people in disaster. They bring their cares and love to people in disaster.


Yanji Church is still a small part of this community and their involvement in aiding has just started. They said they will keep learning from helping others, hoping one day they can help more people. They are using their motivated actions to express Jesus love.
