What is Church?

Simply, Church is God and people. Church is not a place, or a building, or a style. Church is a community of people who come together to learn more about Jesus and encounter his amazing love, and then help others to do the same. Lifehouse is full of young people who are experiencing God’s love; not as a far away God, but as a close God whose desire is to have a personal relationship with us. We believe church should be fun and full of joy! It is a safe place to grow and learn in all areas of life. In church you will find life-long friends, feel encouraged and learn things that will help you with school, work, friends, relationships, finances, family and so much more.

Do I have to be a Christian?

No, every week people who are not Christians join Lifehouse. All are welcome. Most are shocked at how fun our services are and how friendly the people are. There is never an obligation to become a Christian but if you would like to know more about God and the bible, or meet new people, church is a great place to start!

What happens at a Lifehouse service?

At Lifehouse Church we love to creatively express our love for God. So you might walk into the start of a service and wonder if you have walked into a concert. Can this really be church? The answer is Yes! We love celebrating and worshiping God with contemporary Christian rock, pop and techno music played by our Lifehouse band. All songs are bilingual and the words are all projected on screens so that you can sing along if you like. After the music a church leader will get up and deliver an uplifting message about Jesus. Everything that happens in a Lifehouse service is bilingual (Japanese and English). After the service there will be an opportunity to grab a drink and meet and chat with new friends.

Do I have to pay for anything?

No, all our church services are free! We give people an opportunity to give every week, but this is not compulsory. If it’s your first time to visit our church, we have a small present and an information card for you. Please fill in the card so that we can keep you updated about exciting upcoming church events via email.

Do I have to register to come to church?

There are no registrations or sign ups necessary.

What should I wear?

Whatever clothes you feel most comfortable in. Most people seem choose the smart casual look.

Does everyone speak english?

No, You don’t need to speak English to be a part of the Lifehouse family. At church there are people from all over the world with many different languages, but in our services everything is done in 2 languages: Japanese and English, with the exepction of one Chinese speaking service during the 3:30PM service.

Are the people friendly?

Yes! When you come in the door, friendly people will welcome you, show you around, and help you get connected.

Do you use the Bible?

Yes. We believe that the bible is God’s letter to the world. It is full of wisdom and power that will help and empower your life. Every week we use it to learn more about God and his plans for our lives because we know that it will help us to live with power, joy, and vision.
