Our vision is to help make a significant difference in the progress of the gospel among the Japanese people over the first half of this century.

Christianity in Japan

Christianity is very much a minority religion in Japan at present. We estimate that between 0.2% and 0.5% of Japanese have fully embraced the gospel, which makes the Japanese among the least-reached major people groups in the world.
