In my youth years, I wanted to know the truth about life. Who am I and what will happen after I died? Is there a god or gods? As I grow up in
Japan, I read many books on religions especially on Buddhism. I thought the way of Buddha was collect and the Christianity is worng
religion. However, I was still missing something inside of me. I wondered, is there the God, the only one as Christians say? How can I know
I went to USA in my high school year. My firends in American High school invited me to their church. At first I hesitated but I wanted to save
poor Chritians from their mistake. So to convert Chritians to Buddhism, I went to the church. At first I could not understand how the
Chirstians can even believe a such nonsense that a man resurrected and he is the God. However, I felt love in the church. It was a strange
feeling. I slowly wanted to know more about them and their God.
"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my
disciples, if you love one another."
I prayed to the Christian God for first time and asked him to tell me the truth. I started to read Bible and the Bible changed my life.
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you."
As I read the word of God, his words became more and more personal. He was speaking to me directly. I surrender to him and I felt his
presence in my life. I became a new Christian. God is real and now I understand his love. He loves me.
I went to Dallas Theological Seminary and I am grad I went to that Seminary. Because they taught me properly how to read God's word. With
the trainging God equipped me to serve Him. I realized He wants me to teach his word to others especially to Japanese. I came back to Japan
and God made a church by using me. The church is called Takarazuka Fellowship Church.
As a church is "WIFE" for Christ, our church main focus is "W.I.F.E, "which stands for W: Worship, I: Instruction(teaching and studying
Come to our church and see the great things our mighty God has just begun to do in Japan.
