The word 天主教 (tiān zhǔ jiào) is derived from the Chinese translation of the Latin phrase "Ecclesia Catholica", which means "Catholic Church". The Chinese characters 天 (tiān) and 主 (zhǔ) mean "heaven" and "lord" respectively, and 教 (jiào) means "teaching". Thus, the phrase 天主教 (tiān zhǔ jiào) literally translates to "heavenly lord's teaching" or "teaching of the heavenly lord".
