The True Jesus Church is a non-denominational Christian church that originated in Beijing, China, in 1917. The current elected chairman of the TJC International Assembly is Preacher Yong-Ji Lin. Today, there are approximately 2.5 million members in fifty three countries and six continents. The church was established during the establishment of the Pentecostal movement in China in the early 20th century. This movement started in United States and spread to China during the time of the first Pentecostal revival or, the Azusa Street Revival in Los Angeles led by William J. Seymour in 1906-1908. The church believes in One True God theology. They were also one of the three indigenous Chinese house churches that existed before the Communist Party of China ascension in 1949. The church aims to unite the churches as One Body of Christ and to preach the gospel to all nations before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
