About Witness Lee:
Witness Lee was a Chinese Christian preacher belonging to the Christian group local churches in Taiwan and the United States and was the founder of Living Stream Ministry. He was born in 1905 in the city of Yantai, Shandong, China, to a Southern Baptist family. He became a Christian in 1925 through the preaching of Peace Wang and later joined the Christian work started by Watchman Nee. Like Nee, Lee emphasized the believers' subjective experience and enjoyment of Christ as life for the building up of the church, not as an organization, but as the Body of Christ. He was honored by Hon. Joseph R. Pitts of Pennsylvania in the US Congress on April 29, 2014 for his "extraordinary impact far beyond the Chinese-speaking world."
