Welcome to


Fukuoka Baptist Church


(Japan Baptist Fukuoka Christ Church)



"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." 

Matthew 11:28 (NIV)



Thank you for visiting our website.


The door of the church is open to everyone.


Please come and join us for Sunday Services and other meetings.


     The Bible tells us that God is with us through Jesus Christ at all times. No matter how weak or wretched we may be, God warmly fixes his eyes on us, accepts us as who we are, and wishes to have a special relationship with each one of us. Everyone's life is beautiful and hopeful if we see it in our relationship with God.

     The church is a place where we can lay down our burdens because Jesus Christ took upon himself our sin which we cannot bear alone. This is where we find salvation. The church is a place to share the burdens of our lives so that God would take them over. 

     Let us find hope to live by opening the Bible and praying together. Please come and visit our church. We are waiting for you!


Hirotsugu Ogawa,
