Welcome to Abide!

We are an international Christian church in Osaka with bilingual services in English and Japanese.


The Word of God – At the heart of our services, and our lives, is the Word of God, which is taught verse-by-verse, chapter-by-chapter through the Word of God. We know the Word of God to be the single most effective tool for transforming the lives of people, and it is our primary emphasis in all we do.

Small Groups (optional, of course) – groups of 4-8 people by gender and language. Small groups are a great way to get closer to Jesus and to one another on a deeper level. You can ask questions, share insights, or simply just listen and grow. We will also spend time in prayer for one another, so please consider joining us!
