The Protestant Truth Society (PTS) is a Christian religious organisation based in London, United Kingdom.

It was founded by John Kensit in 1889, to take a stand for the principles of the Protestant Reformation against the growing influence of Roman Catholicism within the Church of England and the nation.[1]

In 1898 it sent out the first band of "Wickliffe Preachers" to spread the message. To train them, it established the Kensit Memorial Bible College in Finchley in 1905; this opened in 1908.[2][3]

The PTS is still active, based in Fleet Street, London, with the Mission Statement: "This Society exists to assist Christians and churches to stand for the truth in all its glory and against error in all its forms."
