The People's Temple was a religious cult founded By Jim Jones in 1955.

The Cult Mixes Christianity With Communist and Socialism Ideology. The cult was disbanded following the mass suicide at Jonestown on November 18th, 1978. Jonestown resulted in the largest single loss of American civilian life in a deliberate act until September 11 attacks.


  • This cult was the main inspiration for the Testament of the New Ezekiel from the video game Outlast 2. Most notably when the cult members committed mass suicide with cyanide, much like how the People's Temple committed suicide via cyanide poisoning in the Jonestown Massacre.
