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."

The current chairman is the Reverend Dominic Stockford.
