Graveyard of Missionaries..?
Many Christians and Church Leaders say that "Japan is the missionary's graveyard", and the majority of churches in Japan are stacked in their evangelism that many of them cannot even see one person get saved in a year.
We've heard many stories of missionaries coming to Japan burning, and leaving burned out after few years..
But we're still convinced that the harvest is ripe in Japan.
Did you know that Japan used to have many Christians before the great persecution?
People in that time devoted all their lives to Jesus, and it threatened the Japanese government.
And it led to the martyr of approximately 300,000 Christians including small children like 5years old girl.
JAPAN IS WAITING TO BE AWAKEN AGAIN
WHAT IF JAPAN WILL BE SAVED?
God has shown us an open vision of a tall tower in Tokyo and said that
"the leaders from the whole world will gather here to seek for the wisdom, and we'll bring unity among nations".
God has told us that "the salvation of Japan is already in his plan",
and "The revival in Japan, as a breakpoint, will bring huge impact in the revival in entire Asia".
Japanese are known for their loyalties for the things
they have committed to
Japanese are known
for their unique sense of beauties,
details and creativities
Japan has big impact in Asia and the world with its unique cultures, medias, economy and innovations.
WHEN JAPAN WILL BE SAVED,
ASIA WILL BE SAVED!!
We want to share with you some stories of how God transformed people's lives through us!

Currently we're seeing at least one baptism every month in our church.
None of this could happen without your obedience in financial support and prayers!
Our Ministry and Pastors are living completely dependent on supports.
Can you imagine if any of this didn't happen or delayed ?
Can you imagine if we couldn't win these souls just for the lack of finances?
Your seeds, even small, can turn into someone's salvations and transformations.
THERE'RE PEOPLE WAITING IN THE FUTURE
TO HEAR THE GOSPEL AND READY TO BE REAPED!!
YOUR SUPPORT REALLY MATTERS
HERE ARE THE PRIMARY LIST OF WHERE YOUR DONATIONS WILL BE USED FOR.
We believe that love communicates itself through action. At our church, we have experimented with what is an effective way to evangelize the Japanese, and have done events each month, like cafe outreach, house parties, art and performance events. (Photo) We draw people in with creativity. There, Japanese young people one after another get to experience the gospel and encounter God's love, and get saved. (We have been seeing about one baptism each month.) And we intend to continue planning different kinds of evangelism projects that clearly communicate that the love of Jesus is real as well as life-changing to young Japanese who live in today's secularized world. Some of the things we are planning this year are: events based on Japan's holidays, stadium evangelism, and cultural exchange events advertised through social media, etc.
As some of you know, Japan is famous for its media culture. We believe that media is one of the most powerful tool to reach people with the gospel in Japan.
We believe in using all the tools and knowledge that we've been given to communicate the goodness of our God. In today's society where people spend most of their time outside of work and school online, the internet has become the main battlefield. In order to build the faith of Christians whose faith has grown weak from not being rooted in community, and to make content easy to find for seekers who want to know more about God's love and the church, we want to improve the quality of our media. These are the things we want to improve in our media: Original worship song composition and production, music videos, YouTube content, Instagram, Twitter, etc.
It’s our desire to reveal the love of God to the society not only by words but by actions in the way they can understand. We believe that church should be a place where can provide solutions and helps to the society when they’re in need.
We believe that being Christian is not a religious activity we do one day a week, but a 24/7 lifestyle. In order to live a lifestyle of loving the neighborhood we live in, We intentionally chose to move to this part of Tokyo, Minowa, Even now, members of the church have chosen love by intentionally living together in community and learning practical love through everyday life. (Photo) And to serve the community, we do prayer walks, community art events, and picking up trash in the community. It even made the news! →https://www.christiantoday.co.jp/articles/30188/20211109/creative-carnival-2021.htm Things that we are planning for city service: prophetic tea shop (a casual cafe for seekers and anybody can come to and fellowship with Christians) etc.
We believe that we are to do our best and serve wholeheartedly with regards to the venue in which we get to worship our God. Currently, we have a venue in which 40 or so attendees get to worship freely, (and this was already a fabulous mircale and the grace of God we got to experience) ※refer to the picture, but as God has been adding onto the new family each season, we would very soon need a venue of 100 attendees. Also, we are in need of equipmentst to fill the venue to broadcast the service to the world. Equipments we want to prepare: instruments, camaera, computers etc.
SERVING LOCAL CHURCHES
We believe there’s power when churches come together in unity of the gospel. And that look like serving other churches, ministers, and leaders with the love of God.
We believe that there is power when we gather in the unity of the Gospel. And we do that when we partner with other churches, pastors and leaders in the love of God. We often collaborate with other churches in the region, not just for the sake of working together, but in order to really build relationships and know one another. We aim for unity solely around the Gospel of Jesus Some of the churches and organizations we have partnered with are: 21st Century Church, Soka, Hillsong, Every Nation, YWAM, Live Church Sunza ※(These churches are not just in Tokyo, but in Shizuoka, Hokkaido, Fukushima, and other areas of Japan.) Things we want to do: A prophetic conference for local church leaders, etc.
We believe those who preach the gospel should get paid for the work of the gospel. Our goal is to pay every full-time staff in our church so that they can run without divided focus, time and energy.
