The Jehovah's Witnesses are a religious movement, first known as Bible Students, organised in the early 1870s by Charles Taze Russell in Pittsburgh. Jehovah's Witnesses accept the Bible as their sole authority, worshipping Jehovah and acknowledging Jesus Christ as God's son and spokesman. They believe that 144000, the Christian congregation, will rule with Christ in his heavenly kingdom over the rest of an obedient mankind, who will live on a paradise earth. They do not engage in politics or blood transfusions and are pacifists.
