The Mission of the International Assembly

The International Assembly (IA) of the True Jesus Church (TJC) is the body that represents and unites all TJCs around the world. The mission of the IA therefore focuses on fully utilize the spiritual gifts and resources of all Churches around the world to further the global ministry.

A Brief History of the Establishment of the International Assembly

The True Jesus Church was established in 1917 in Beijing, China. The early workers, having received the Holy Spirit and revelation of the true gospel, began preaching the truth of salvation to every province of China. The power of God manifested mightily through the presence of the Holy Spirit and through accompanying signs and miracles.

However, with the change of political regime in China in 1949, the True Jesus Churches outside of China lost almost all contact with the Churches inside China. In 1967, the General Assembly (GA) of Taiwan coordinated with the Churches in various countries and organized the first World Delegates Conference (WDC). The 2nd WDC took place in 1975 and established the IA. The IA Office was then established in the Taiwan GA complex. Per the decision of the 4th WDC, the IA Office was relocated to southern California, USA in 1985. With the revision of the IA Bylaws in 1989, the IA was officially registered in California, USA. The organization structure was further amended during the 7th WDC in 1999.
