Background Note: The BMG took over the Hongkong and Guangdong work of the Berlin Missionary Association for China in 1882. Financial difficulties after World War I compelled the BMG to transfer its Shandong work to the American Lutheran Mission. Having received material support from the American church since 1918, the official transfer of assets and some personnel occurred on 1 January 1925.

In 1935 the German mission entered an important new phase, when the German government severely reduced the amount of foreign currency that could be transferred to China. The Chinese church of the Berlin Mission thus became a church of self-support.
