About » Our Church

Lifehouse is a church filled with love, life and joy. It’s a group of people who love to get together each week to love God and love others. It’s fun, alive and life changing. In August, 2002, a group of Australians with vision and a heart of serving God in Japan started Lifehouse Tokyo. The name “Lifehouse” reflects the core ideas of our commitment and vision as a body of believers eager to impact Japan for Christ. We are seeing continuous growth and the service which started with a small number of people have now expanded into multiple services held in Tokyo. We have also planted new churches in Japan in Osaka, Yokohama, Sapporo, Sendai, Kobe and in Hong Kong, Bali and Taipei. Lifehouse has bilingual services. The entire service is in English and Japanese. The praise and worship songs are bilingual songs from Hillsong, United and other contemporary churches and artists. The Bible is expressed in a simple, yet meaningful way. The messages are filled with relevance, humour and practical advice on day-to-day living. Lifehouse is a church with warm-hearted people, where Japanese and people from around 30 different countries gather as one family. Our aim is to encourage people to feel closer to God through the strong relationships between people, powerful worship and messages that touch people’s hearts. So, if you haven’t been to a church before and don’t know about God, but like meeting new people, singing great songs, and want to know more about God and the Bible in a simple way, please come and be our guest. We know you’ll love it!
