The Christian community in China condemned the so-called Church of Almighty God and warned believers nationwide to stay vigilant against cult influences.

Kan Baoping, secretary-general of the China Christian Council, said religious leaders should take immediate action to shield their congregations from the cult.

Kan hailed the recent nationwide police crackdown on cult members who are spreading doomsday fears. More than 500 suspects have been detained.

About 400 suspects were detained in Qinghai province alone. Many others have been detained in the Inner Mongolia autonomous region, Chongqing municipality, and Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Fujian, Shaanxi, Hubei, Sichuan and Guangdong provinces.
