Keywords:Christian and Missionary Alliance, Tianjin, Beulah Church, local evangelical groups, Missionary movement
From 1895 to 1900, American Christian and Missionary Alliance missionary John Woodberry and his wife carried out missionary activities in Tianjin, China. They preached among students and established churches, and then extended their missionary scope to the whole country, which was different from the missionary mode of other parishes and did not limit their missionary scope to a certain region. This paper discusses the Gospel movement carried out by Tianjin Beulah Church in a short period of five years, and explains their experience and logic of the universal Gospel spirit, thus proving that Tianjin Beulah Church is one of the early local evangelical groups of Chinese Christianity.
