Features

Yanping Church was originally where the Japan Holiness Church preached their beliefs. Built in the 12th year of the Shōwa era (1937 CE) and rebuilt in 1947 CE with funds raised by pastors Lin Tian-sheng and Li Pang-chu, the church was renamed ""Yanping Church"" in 1957. It is historically significant for bearing witness to Japan Holiness Church's evangelism. The church is located within Taiping Market near Daqiaotou, surrounded by market vendors, and closely tied to local development. A red brick pseudo-Gothic structure with decorative pebbledash on the outside, the church features a tower, a small spire on the roof that was later replaced by a cross, and a pointed-arch entrance. The upper level has oeils-de-boeuf (small round windows) on the front and back, with original brick walls, buttresses, and pointed-arch windows. The building is a display of architectural techniques and aesthetics of diverse eras, a testament to the evolution of Western architecture in early 20th-century Taipei, and a site with great historical, architectural, and artistic value.
