Notes:

House church Christians in China recognize only one head of the Church, that is, Jesus Christ.

The TSPM (Three-Self Patriotic Movement) is the government-sanctioned (“patriotic”) Christian organization, which must recognize two, both Christ and the Communist Party.

The TSPM is used as a tool of the Communist Party to control and regulate the expression of Christianity.
