所以可以犯罪；可以偏離 神的道；令 神極度痛心。
We are now in the 21st century, where Jesus has been born and risen for more than two thousand years. From generation to generation, the church carries out the great mission to spread the good news. However, started from the day Jesus was taken up to heaven and the Holy Spirit came, the church has been facing the challenges from both inside and outside the community. Bible and history of Christianity tells us God’s chosen people and the church are composed of sinners, therefore they can sin against God; go astray from God’s commandments; and broken God’s heart. So there was Protestant Reformation, the church has to be faithful to God by re-examine their faith thoroughly in anytime.
Jesus Lifehouse was born from the evangelical movement of Australian Hillsong Churches, and started her churches in Tokyo, Osaka, Fukushima etc. to contact young people. It seems very successful on the surface, yet there are growing testimonies about the problems inside the church. The Church is Holy, Universal and belongs to God does not mean the church would never sin and go astray from God. Instead, the church has to be humble before God and listen to the whispers of the Holy Spirit.
Today Jesus Lifehouse is establishing their branches in Chinese communities in Mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. As Chinese Christians concerning the legitimate and genuine faith of Chinese believers, we felt the need to ring the alarm and help young believers to contact with the real life of Jesus.
In the 21st century, internet is the best media to contact young people. However, the drawback is there are a lot of fake information as well on the internet, therefore we operate with the spirit to strive for truths. There are no evidences to confirm all the information here are truths, yet we can still make a good judgment on what is happening through the testimonies from different people. If we find out fake testimonies, we will take necessary actions accordingly.
May God be with us, and urgently pray for the church’s repentant to God, Amen!

I believe in God the Father, Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord;
Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary:
Suffered under Pontius Pilate; was crucified, dead and buried: He descended into hell;
The third day he rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost;
I believe in the holy catholic church: the communion of saints;
The forgiveness of sins;
The resurrection of the body;
And the life everlasting. Amen.
