The Xibaipo Spirit with "two musts" as its core
the pioneering spirit of having the bravery to fight to the last moment,
the democratic spirit of relying on the masses and adhering to unity,
the spirit of being modest and humble, and the spirit of working hard.
In May 1948, Comrade Mao Zedong led the efforts of moving the Central Committee of the CPC and the PLA headquarters to Xibaipo.
In the next March, they left Xibaipo for Peking.
In Xibaipo, Comrade Mao Zedong and the old generation of revolutionaries led the nationwide Agrarian Reform,
commanded the three major campaigns, held the 2nd Plenary Session of the 7th Central Committee of the CPC,
prepared for the birth of New China
and formed the preciousXibaipo Spirit.
At the Second Plenary Session of the Seventh Central Committee of the CPC,
Comrade Mao Zedong put forward "two musts”,
namely must ensure that the comrades continue to be humble, cautious, non-arrogant and patient,

As the inheritance and sublimation of the revolutionary spirits such as Jinggangshan Spirit, Long March Spirit and Yan'an Spirit,
the Xibaipo Spirit is the precious wealth of ourParty
