Brief introduction to Shandong TSPM:
Shandong CC&TSPM refers to Shandong Christian Council (CC) and Shandong Committee of Three-self Patriotic Movement of the Protestant Church (TSPM).
Shortly after the establishment of the People’s Republic of China, Christians in Shandong completely shook off the control of external forces and embarked on the path of independence and self-administration, in response to the national Three-self Patriotic Movement of the Protestant Church. Over the past 40 years, the Three-self Patriotic Movement has changed the image of the Christianity in Shandong as a “foreign religion”, eradicated the disputes and contradictions caused by different denominational groups that took cheap shot at each other, launched union worship and established patriotic organizations compatible with Chinese socialist society. Concepts like loving both the motherland and the church in China, self-administration, self-reliance, and self-evangelism are becoming the mainstream of developing Christianity in Shandong.
Shandong TSPM is a provincial patriotic mass organization. Founded in 1958, it is located in Jinan City (the capital of Shandong Province).
Shandong TSPM serves the purposes of leading all Christians in Shandong to be patriotic and church-loving, abide by the Constitution, laws, regulations and national policies, uphold social morals, stay committed to the independence of the Church, strengthen solidarity both inside and outside of the Church, provide service for the Church in Shandong and ensure that the Church can keep up with the times.
