About JKC



We are one family of many nations. A place to receive hope for all kinds of problems, healing for all kinds of pain, and help for all people.


Our services are bilingual in both English and Japanese with a Japanese interpreter. Our music is urban contemporary gospel-Christian music with an atmosphere of inspiration. We are a casual dress, down-to-earth, non-denominational, and non-judgmental church.


The name (Japan Kingdom Church) comes from Matthew 6:10 where Jesus prayed God's Kingdom to come and his will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Kingdom meaning God's culture of love, forgiveness, healing, and redemption. Japan Kingdom Church is a Christian church and

is not affiliated nor is a Jehovah's Witness Church. Read our Statement of Faith

Mission & Vision

The Beginning

JKC's first service was held in Pastor Marcels living room in 2017 by gathering those with no knowledge of Christ from the streets. What started from humble beginnings quickly evolved to a unique community service complex building in Haijima City called Kingdom Garden Community Center in which weekly services are held.


In addition, care to the homeless and a myriad of community service programs are also held at Kingdom Garden. Pastor Marcel and his wife Chiaki are continuing to witness many lives impacted and radically changed through the raw demonstrations of the genuine love of God. About our Pastor here!
