Samuel Lamb’s Testimony / September 2010 Updated Print and Edition / Chinese house church leader
Published and Printed in CHINA by Pastor Samuel Lamb our beloved Pastor!
Samuel Lamb or Lin Xiangao (simplified Chinese: 林献羔; traditional Chinese: 林獻羔; pinyin: Lín Xiàn-gāo; Wade–Giles: Lin2 Hsian4-Kao1; October 4, 1924 – August 3, 2013) was a Protestant pastor in Guangzhou, China. He was a leader in the Chinese house church movement and known for his resistance against the state-sanctioned Three-Self Patriotic Movement (TSPM).
Lamb was born in a mountainous area overlooking Macau. His father, Paul Lamb, was the pastor of a small Baptist congregation.
Lamb was imprisoned for more than 20 years (1955–57; 1958–78) for his faith in Christ and refusal to join the TSPM. In spite of "honey-bucket" duty at labor farms or backbreaking work in coal mines at labor camps, Lamb continued to teach.
In 1978, Lamb was released from prison and, in 1979, he restarted the church in 35 Da Ma Zhan, Guangzhou. Because the attendance grew quickly, he then moved the meetings to 15 Rong Gui Li, De Zheng Bei Road. Now, the house church holds four main services each week, with an estimated attendance of four to five thousand.
He died in Guangzhou in 2013, aged 88. HE IS IN HEAVEN! For reasons of security and site elements, the date of the farewell ceremony was changed from August 17, 2013 to August 16, 2013, in Baiyun Hall, Yinhe park, Yinhe cemetery, Guangzhou. There were nearly 30,000 mourners in attendance.
