The church, being the "pillar
and foundation of the truth," must uphold and proclaim the good news of
God's Kingdom in complete accordance with the Scriptures. Today, the True Jesus
Church has faithfully proclaimed the gospel of Jesus Christ worldwide and
brought many to the Lord. We invite you to study the truth with us in this
church and walk with us on the path of salvation.
It was God's will, according to
his plan of salvation, that all who receive the redemption of Jesus Christ
become members of God's household. The Bible calls this household of God the
"church" (1Timothy ),
made up of God's people throughout history. It is a spiritual community to
which every believer of Jesus Christ belongs.
The Apostolic Church
Just as he had predestined, God
established the apostolic church on earth through the death and resurrection of
the Lord Jesus and the pouring out of the promised Holy Spirit. The church
proclaimed the gospel of salvation and was united in fellowship. By the power
of the Holy Spirit, the apostolic church spread from Jerusalem to Asia
and Europe. The Lord manifested his mighty
works through the church, and continued to add to their number those who were
But soon after the days of the
apostles, heresy and political power replaced the gospel that was once
entrusted to the saints.
True Jesus Church
In 1917, God revived his church
by building up the True Jesus Church in Beijing,
early workers, having received the Holy Spirit and revelation of the true
gospel, began preaching the truth of salvation from the heart of China. The Holy
Spirit worked mightily; signs and miracles confirmed the truth that the church
Within a few decades, the gospel
advanced swiftly and covered almost every province of China.
The church then expanded to other parts of Asia.
Until today, the true gospel has also reached countries in America, Africa, Europe, and Australia.
One Church, One Gospel
"There is one body and one
Spirit, just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call, one
Lord, one faith, one baptism" (Ephesians 4:4,5). The church is the body of
Christ. There is only one true church because Christ has only one body, and
this church preaches the only gospel of salvation.
In this end time, the Lord himself
has raised up the True Jesus Church to preach the only way of salvation. She
was founded by the one Spirit that founded the apostolic church; she shares the
one faith that the apostles once preached; and she administers the one baptism
that the apostles administered. This is the true church, the body of Christ. So
we must come into this church by accepting the true gospel and be baptized into
the one body of Christ.
The Lord Jesus commissioned his
disciples two major tasks: to proclaim the gospel to every nation (Mark -16) and to attend to the
spiritual needs of all believers in the church (John -17).
Relying on God's purpose and
might, the True Jesus Church aims to accomplish this two-pronged commission.
Through constant prayer, we trust that the Holy Spirit will enable us to carry
the gospel of salvation to all the corners of the world, so that people of all
races will come to accept the Lord Jesus Christ. In preparing for the Lord's
second coming, the church also strives to strengthen the faith and uplift the
spiritual qualities of her members through continual devotion to prayer, mutual
encouragement, and studying the Scriptures. Ultimately, the church as a whole may
present herself holy and pure to the Lord.
Why "True" Jesus Church?
The God we worship is the true God; thus his
church is the true church.
The Lord Jesus called himself the True Vine; The church, which is his body, is therefore called the true
The true church preaches the true and complete
gospel, which is confirmed by the Holy Spirit, signs, and miracles.
