Confucian church

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Confucian church (Chinese: 孔教会; pinyin: Kǒng jiàohuì or Rú jiàohuì) is a Confucian religious institution inspired by the Christian church.[1]

Chinese people outside of China started their own Confucian churches,[2] they are especially common in Indonesia and the United States.

Since around 2000 interest in Confucianism has been growing, which has renewed talks about a national "Confucian church".[3] The Holy Confucian Church (孔圣会; Kǒngshènghuì) was started on November 1, 2015.
