The True Jesus Church (TJC), which is an independent denomination established by Chinese has celebrated its centenary. Yet, TJC has appeared to be ＂the other＂ in Chinese Christianity, thus becoming an object that is being discussed in Apologetics or studies of heresy. There are some controversial issues in TJC, of which the most debated include speaking in tongues as one of the requisites for salvation and the negative attitude towards the traditional trinitarian doctrine. Anne Tsai, a female theologian from China Evangelical Seminary, worked on the related issues in her essay titled ＂On Pneumatology of the True Jesus Church,＂ which could be considered to be one of only a few works that brought focus onto the doctrine of Godhead of the TJC. However, that her essay is still positioned within the framework TJC has been discussed. This is mainly due to the stereotype perspective of TJC and Pentecostalism, and the understanding from an Apologetic view, plus her inadequate knowledge of the historical context of the TJC's earliest days. Therefore, she carried out her criticism of the TJC's doctrine of God from within an old paradigm of ＂monarchianism,＂ which led to a one-sided understanding that the TJC holds a pneumacentric view. This essay will try to review the TJC's oneness doctrine in accordance with the context of the origins of oneness pentecostalism that once influenced the former, and also try to engage in a dialogue with its doctrine of Godhead rather than being apologetic.
