Our mission is to lead our church in experiencing and glorifying the Lord Jesus Christ through His Word and His Spirit. We are committed to leading the lost to Christ, discipling the saved, and equipping the saints to serve His Kingdom among a multi-cultural (Japanese and American) community of believers in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.

Our church’s leadership team consists of four pastors, two trustees, an operations manager, and an elder. We aim to support you in your life and faith in both English and in Japanese. For details, please consult each leader’s introduction.
