The Church of Almighty God
...(全能神教会). The largest Chinese Christian new religious movement, founded in 1991. Most of its first members were part of the Shouters. Also known as Eastern Lightning, it teaches that Jesus Christ has returned to Earth in the shape of a Chinese woman, recognized as Almighty God, who teaches the fullness of truth for the purification of humankind and the advent of a Millennial Kingdom. Its phenomenal growth alarmed the CCP. It was included in the list of the xie jiao in 1995, and is currently the single most persecuted religious group in China.
