Who We Are

The True Jesus Church originated in Beijing, China in 1917. The Holy Spirit revealed the truth to the early workers and established the True Jesus Church. Since then, the gospel of salvation has spread from east to west across the world, and to date it has a history of more than a hundred years.

The True Jesus Church was not founded by certain individuals. Neither was it derived from any denomination. It was founded by the Holy Spirit. By His grace and mercy, God our Father established the True Jesus Church to restore the church of the apostolic days. Everywhere that this gospel of the kingdom is preached, we witness the Lord Jesus pouring out the promised Holy Spirit. Those who receive the Holy Spirit speak in tongues, just as when the apostles first received the Holy Spirit (Acts 10:47, 11:17). By the authority given by the Holy Spirit, the True Jesus Church baptizes in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins (Jn 20:21-23; Acts 2:38).

The True Jesus Church is built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus as the cornerstone (Eph 2:20). Therefore, it adheres to the truth of the Bible and firmly believes that the way of salvation must be completed according to the Bible, without any additions or subtractions. The True Jesus Church preaches the truth of salvation, and God testifies to the truth according to His will through signs, miracles, and the gift of the Holy Spirit (Heb 2:3-4; Mark 16:20).

In the 100-year history of the church from its beginning until now, God’s miraculous deeds have defied rational explanation. This is because the Holy Spirit has worked in the church since its establishment and has never stopped. If it were not for God, the True Jesus Church never would have risen from the impoverished and undeveloped Chinese society of the early twentieth century. But the church flourished and developed rapidly even amidst the anti-superstition and science-centered ideological trends at the time. If it were not for God, the True Jesus Church would not have continued to develop, receiving no financial support from foreign missionaries. We wholeheartedly thank God that the gospel of salvation has currently spread to six continents and over sixty countries. Our believers worldwide come from many different races, and more churches continue to be established everywhere under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

The mission of the True Jesus Church is to spread the gospel of salvation to all the world, to make all peoples disciples of the Lord Jesus, and to teach the disciples to obey everything the Lord Jesus commanded. The church strives to adorn herself to be ready to welcome the Lord’s return (Rev 21:2).

What We Believe

  • Jesus Christ, the Word who became flesh, died on the cross for the redemption of sinners, resurrected on the third day, and ascended to heaven. He is the only Savior of mankind, the Creator of the heavens and earth, and the only true God.
  • The Holy Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, is inspired by God, the only scriptural truth, and the standard for Christian living.
  • The True Jesus Church, established by our Lord Jesus Christ, through the Holy Spirit during the time of the ‘latter rain’, is the restored true church of the apostolic time.
  • Water baptism is the sacrament for the remission of sins for regeneration. The baptism must take place in natural living water, such as the river, sea, or spring. The Baptist, who already has had received baptism of water and the Holy Spirit, conducts the baptism in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. And the person receiving the baptism must be completely immersed in water with head bowed and face downward.
  • Receiving the Holy Spirit, evidenced by speaking in tongues, is the guarantee of our inheritance of the kingdom of heaven.
  • The sacrament of footwashing enables one to have a part with the Lord Jesus. It also serves as a constant reminder that one should have love, holiness, humility, forgiveness, and service. Every person who has received water baptism must have his/her feet washed in the name of Jesus Christ. Mutual footwashing may be practiced whenever is appropriate.
  • The Holy Communion is the sacrament to commemorate the death of the Lord Jesus Christ. It enables us to partake of the flesh and blood of our Lord and to be in communion with Him so that we can have eternal life and be raised on the last day. This sacrament shall be held as often as possible. Only one unleavened bread and grape juice shall be used.
  • The Sabbath day, the seventh day of the week (Saturday), is a holy day, blessed and sanctified by God. It is to be observed under the Lord’s grace for the commemoration of God’s creation and salvation, and with the hope of eternal rest in the life to come.
  • Salvation is given by the grace of God through faith. Believers must rely on the Holy Spirit to pursue holiness, to honor God, and to love humanity.
  • The Lord’s Second Coming will take place on the last day when He descends from heaven to judge the world: the righteous will receive eternal life, while the wicked will be eternally condemned.

Why We Are Here

We are here today because the True Jesus Church has been established by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. This is the same way the Lord Jesus established His church in the Bible (Acts 1:4-8, 2:1-33). Wherever the True Jesus Church may be in the world, we can witness the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, which is evidenced by speaking in tongues. People who come to hear the good news of Jesus Christ and pray to Him can experience firsthand the presence of the Lord in the church.

Because of the presence of the Holy Spirit, baptism administered by church in the name of the Lord Jesus has the power to wash away sin. All who are baptized belong to this one body of Christ, regardless of ethnic background or social status (1 Cor 12:13).

Furthermore, the Holy Spirit confirms the commission which Jesus entrusted to His church—to preach the good news and baptize for the remission of sins. Our mission therefore is to bring people of all nations into the one body of Christ. Our sincere hope is for you to come and experience God Himself in the true church.
