Description: Explore the city profile and learn about Wafangdian City.

Wafangdian, a city of more than 1 million people, is located in northeastern China close to the North Korean border. Like many cities in northeastern China, it experiences long winters. Often the temperature is below freezing for months.

Wafangdian is primarily an agricultural city, famous for its apples. But it also has a solid industry base. Nicknamed as the “bearing capital” of China, there are over 400 bearing factories employing the majority of non-farming people.

Changxingdao, the fifth largest island of China, is a part of Wafangdian and hosts a new ship-building center for the country. Wafangdian is also the home of China’s newest and largest nuclear power plant, as well as diamond mines that provide over half of China’s diamond output.

The city is comprised of primarily Han Chinese (over 90 percent), but there is also a mix of Manchu (7 percent), Xibe, Hui and Mongolians. Most of the people are atheists or Buddhists, and practice ancestor worship.

During the 1900’s there were a few waves of revival. One started with a man called Chang Shen who was a gangster, alcoholic and womanizer and later became a believer. He would walk from village to village sharing the Gospel with people he met. It is said that missionaries followed in his footsteps and baptized many who believed. A number of missionary groups worked in the Liaoning Province during the early 1900’s.
