A Study of the Emergence and Early Development of Selected Protestant Chinese Churches in the Philippines


Uayan weaves the story of six churches in the Philippines into the local history of their individual settings. Uayan presents a rich and previously unacknowledged heritage and support from US mission organisations from 1898–1946. The seeds sown in Chinese communities across the Philippines resulted in indigenous churches that are bearing fruit in missionary activity in China. This is an important contribution towards a global church history.
