Discipleship matters. One of the most effective ways to impact a nation with the Gospel is to disciple local believers to reach their own communities.


Discipleship and Missions Graduates

Over 10,000 students in China have completed our ABC discipleship training program or our China Mission School (CMS), providing valuable Biblical teaching for the underground church.


Lessons in our ABC Discipleship Program

World Compassion’s ABC training is 280 lessons of comprehensive Bible teaching. It helps disciple new believers from the basics of the faith all the way through to evangelism, leadership, and church planting.


Active Students

More than 4,000 students throughout China are actively studying in our ABC and CMS programs. Thousands more are ready and waiting to start as soon as more teaching materials can be distributed.

A conservative estimate is that there are 120 to 150 million Christians in China. In 2021, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) banned all religious content from being shared through any online platform.

The size of the Chinese church, combined with ongoing growth and stifling restrictions, continues to fuel the need for more trained leaders and Bible teaching. A strong house church discipleship program is essential for the health and growth of the largest national church on the planet.

We’ve created two programs with hundreds of hours of material available in print and audio formats to enable underground churches in China to reach people through comprehensive training.

ABC Program​

World Compassion’s ABC training is 280 lessons of comprehensive Bible teaching. It helps disciple new believers from the basics of the faith all the way through to evangelism, marriage, leadership, and church planting. Although new laws have further restricted gatherings and prohibited religious content from being shared online, hundreds of new students are added to the ranks regularly.

Many ABC students complete their training and begin leading their own house churches, often teaching out of the very curriculum we provide.

To build on the foundation of ABC, we also offer conferences as a rare opportunity for the underground Chinese church to get together in larger numbers to receive encouragement, a time of fellowship, and outside teaching on relevant topics.

China Mission School (CMS)

Students can also apply for our China Mission School that includes over 100 hours of training to reach unreached people groups, including nations across the Muslim world.

This program allows disciples to take the next step, giving them tools to learn how to share their faith with other cultures, and gives us the potential to train the largest national church in the world.

The Chinese church knows they carry the same responsibility that we have to “go into all the world and make disciples.” Our vision is to provide training to the Chinese church in mission work so that they themselves can be mobilized to the nations.

We can’t do this without you.

You can help a believer in China receive this new training, opening them up to new insights from the Bible and giving them the resources and confidence they need to share Jesus and effectively make more disciples.
