True Jesus Church in China

The True Jesus Church in China is a non-denominational (independent) church that was established in Beijing, China, in 1917 and continues today in the People's Republic of China. The True Jesus Church was the first Chinese Christian group since the mid-nineteenth century Taipings to generate a creative and self-defined set of doctrines, and it was also the largest of the indigenous churches by the 1930s. This group practices faith healing, speaking in tongues, baptism by immersion, feet washing and Saturday Sabbath. By 1949 they claimed 120,000 members, meeting in 700 churches. Although banned in 1958, they were allowed to reopen in 1985 and since then, they have experienced rapid growth and have spread nationwide, although they are strongest in Jiangsu, Hunan and Fujian provinces. They strongly emphasis daily prayer, both private and public, and engage in vigorous evangelism.

Famous quotes containing the words china, church, jesus and/or true:

    It all ended with the circuslike whump of a monstrous box on the ear with which I knocked down the traitress who rolled up in a ball where she had collapsed, her eyes glistening at me through her spread fingers—all in all quite flattered, I think. Automatically, I searched for something to throw at her, saw the china sugar bowl I had given her for Easter, took the thing under my arm and went out, slamming the door.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    The form of act or thought mattered nothing. The hymns of David, the plays of Shakespeare, the metaphysics of Descartes, the crimes of Borgia, the virtues of Antonine, the atheism of yesterday and the materialism of to-day, were all emanation of divine thought, doing their appointed work. It was the duty of the church to deal with them all, not as though they existed through a power hostile to the deity, but as instruments of the deity to work out his unrevealed ends.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    King Herod shrieking vengeance at the curled
    Up knees of Jesus choking in the air,

    A king of speechless clods and infants. Still
    The world out-Herods Herod;
    Robert Lowell (1917–1977)

    All that Shakespeare says of the king, yonder slip of a boy that reads in the corner feels to be true of himself.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
