True Jesus Church in the Philippines

The True Jesus Church is a nontrinitarian Christian denomination begun in China, growing out of the Pentecostal movement. Since its foundation it has spread to other countries including Philippines.

History

  • While he wandered near their library corner he glanced at book that fully covered in dust and curiously opened it. The title read in English, "The words of life part one and two" and "Christian basic faith" were publications made by the True Jesus Church General Assembly. After examining the contents of the book in minute detail he found many hidden precious gospels which led people to salvation so he shared his findings with family and fellow Pentecostal workers.
  • In 1983 Martin Balaston, an Elder from the United Pentecostal church wrote letters to the TJC in Singapore concerning the two books. In the end he was convinced and received baptism. John and Simon Chen boarded a plane to Bacolod city in Negros Occidental via Manila. Martin kindly accommodated the two deacons at his house where they started preaching the gospel to him.
  • On Friday night, 10 of the Filipino truth-seeking friends prayed fervently for the Holy Spirit and began speaking in tongues.

So, 30 people boarded a van and travelled 20 km to a nearby river where 20 of the believers were baptized. Thus the seeds of the gospel were sown which was evidently done through the Lord's wonderful grace.

The first Philippine TJC church was then established in that city.

By 1987, another church was founded on Pagadian in Mindanao Island followed by the Manila TJC church on 7 October 1990.

Currently, there are 10 churches, 12 prayer houses, 1248 believers, 4 divine workers and 1 preacher on the islands of Luzon, Samar, Negros Occidental, and Mindanao.
