Japanese Ministry

This is a place where you can hear about God’s good news in a language that you can fully understand. You will be able to learn more about God and what the Bible teaches, and discover the purpose He has for your life. Our group is made up of loving people who support each other as we worship, pray, gather together and make Jesus the center of our lives. We extend a warm welcome and invitation for you to join us. There will always be a place for you!
