Jesus Lives (Dutch: Jezus Leeft) is a Dutch political party that was founded in November 2013[1] by evangelist Joop van Ooijen in Giessenburg.[2][failed verification]

The party participated in Giessenlanden and some other municipalities in the 2014 Dutch municipal elections. The party also participated in the 2014 European Parliament election in the Netherlands with nine candidates on the list. In the 2015 Dutch provincial elections the party participated in Noord-Brabant, Flevoland, Utrecht, and Zuid-Holland. The party never won a seat.

In the 2017 Dutch general election the party participated in 7 electoral districts, with Florens van der Spek as party leader. The party won 3,099 votes, which was not enough for a seat. In the 2018 Dutch municipal elections, Jesus Lives participated in thirteen municipalities; nowhere was a seat obtained.

In the 2018 Dutch municipal elections Jesus Lives took part in three provinces. No seat was obtained in any of these three.


According to the party's founder, Joop van Ooijen, the party's primary purpose is making Jesus known to the people.[3] The party opposes abortion, the European Union, and supports environmentalism.[3] Van Ooijen has said that the party's pro-life's stance is non-negotiable, having said that he would "not sit at the table with someone who supports abortion, that is not open to discussion. We will not negotiate, that's what's different between us and the other Christian parties."[3] In that same interview, he expressed confidence that he would get the 64,000 votes in the 2017 Dutch general election required to obtain a seat.[3]
