​Church history

Our church is a Protestant Christian church located in the center of Akasaka, Minato-ku, Tokyo.

From its founding to the present day, our church has been telling us about Jesus Christ here.

The Akasaka Church was started by an ophthalmologist named Willis Whitney.

Akasaka Hospital was opened in 1886, and in the waiting room by the mission of Mr. and Mrs. George Preswait.

I studied the Bible. That is the starting point of Akasaka Church.

The site of the church used to be the official residence of Katsu Kaishu.

The Whitneys and Katsuie had a very close relationship.

The Whitney family's beliefs had a huge impact on Katsu Kaishu.

Willis' sister Clara married Kaishu's son Umetaro.

Umetaro has become a Christian.

The hospital was closed in 1927, but the church continues.

People of all ages and sexes gather in the church.

Gather every Sunday for worship, listen to God's Word through the Bible,

We express our gratitude by singing hymns.

There is a prayer meeting on Wednesday to study the Bible and pray. I also want to be a church open to the community,

Invite local people by actively participating in local activities and holding gospel classes, cancer cafes, abstinence rehabilitation meetings, etc.

I am also active. The church is open to all.

Living in society can sometimes be worrisome and tiring. Faith is supportive at such times.

I hope that even people who come to church can support each other. Above all, by Jesus Christ, which we believe in

It will give you the power to live, guide you, and lay a great foundation in your life.

Please feel free to visit our church. We never force our thoughts and beliefs.

From the standpoint of each individual, I would like to respect each other and value the interaction between people.

Please feel free to visit the church.
