Christianity

Zion Christian Church was founded by Pastor Yu Xisheng, a Chinese American, at Youlanmen (now Yanting Dongjie, Haizhu District) in 1901. In 1913, the Church relocated to Xihao 2 Malu. Later in 1935, as the location became a downtown area, it moved to Xiguayuan (now No. 392 Renmin Zhonglu) to buy a lot to build a new church. In February, 1936, the new church was completed and named Zion Christian Church, meaning "the Holy Residence of God".

In 1947, the Church acceded to the Guangdong Council of the Church of Christ in China. It was closed during the Cultural Revolution. Later, Guangzhou Municipality put into effect its policy on religion and gave back the Church.,, such that on September 21, 1980, the Church resumed religious activities. In 1983, it took back the fellowship hall and gradually resumed various ministries. Up to 1989, there had been 776 baptized and about 500 Sunday worshippers.
