The Spiritual Need in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a major global urban center and one of the most densely populated areas in the world—with seven and a half million people living within the semi-autonomous territory on China’s southeastern coast.

The culture of Hong Kong is unique in its blending of Eastern and Western traditions and values. Traditional Chinese religions such as Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism have the largest following, with Christianity following as another important part of its religious history and current practice. The people of Hong Kong enjoy significant religious freedoms, but influence by China, which supports state atheism, has caused some uncertainty and barriers for religious practice.

Secular education has impacted the number of young people professing religious beliefs, leaving many with an atheistic foundation overlaid with cultural observance of traditional Chinese religion. In the hustle and bustle of urban life in Hong Kong, the peace of Christ is needed.

ABWE in Hong Kong

ABWE first began ministry in Hong Kong in 1951 with a strong emphasis on church planting and theological education. Our team is involved in the work of the China Baptist Theological College, which trains pastors and leaders for local church ministry, and for missions work to mainland China and other parts of Asia. In addition to the college ministry, our team has helped establish a strong fellowship of more than 30 self-supporting and self-governing churches in Hong Kong. This fellowship has also taken responsibility of planting more churches that are sending Chinese missionaries to other nations.

The ABWE team has established an international church located in one of Hong Kong’s red-light districts, and the church partners with another organization to reach out to victims of human trafficking, and to minister to refugees in the community.
