Welcome to Kyoto International Church!

We know searching for a Bible-believing, Evangelical, Spirit-filled church in a city like Kyoto can be a challenging process. We are an international Christian community where we together seek to reflect what His Kingdom should look like.

"There before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb"(Revelation 7:9) 

There are millions of people in this city who are earnestly searching for the truth that sets them free from the mystery of life and death. We believe that when believers are spiritually united and a local church joyfully team-works, regardless of enemy’s obstacles, it will become the most effective witness of His Kingdom for the seeking souls. We believe KIC is born for the purpose. 

KIC is a multi-national, interdenominational, creatively missional and bilingual church. We long to know Him and to make Him known among all the people around us especialy of people in this city.

We hope you will join us in the next Sunday worship!

PASTORS

Pastor Tomo Yamanaka

Born in 1971 in Kobe city, Hyogo. Grew up in a strict Bushido believing Samurai descendant family. In struggle of questioning about the inherited life values and world view, Tomo encountered Christianity. It was by an aged American missionary, late Miss. Mary Ellen Gudeman. (TEAM) It was not an instant conversion but a beginning of his journey for meaning and purpose of life.

In 1992, during a church discipleship training called Evangelism Explosion,  Tomo experienced a supernatural encountering of the Holy Spirit which resulted him the full assurance of his own salvation in Jesus Christ.

Tomo studied photojournalism, political science and finished his bachelor of science degree in Mission/Bible at Lancaster Bible College in Pennsylvania, USA in 1996.  Later he finished his master degree at Alliance Theological Seminary in New York in 2001. Tomo's initial vision after his conversion was to go serve as a missionary in the Communist countries in eastern Europe and China but he acknowledged finally God's calling for him was to return Japan and share the gospel with his own people.

Since his return to Japan, Tomo served as a church planter and a pastor in four different prefectures (Nagano, Yokohama, Osaka and Kyoto). Out of his passion for the role and purpose of the local church, he has authored a book called "The Ship/Allegorical Ecclesiology" (Bungeisha & Duranno Publisher). 

He is also a board member of the drug rehab ministry, Teen Challenge Japan and the national director of Evangelism Explosion Japan. 

Kyoto International Church is the newest church started out in his ministry. KIC is gathering already every Sunday but it will be officially opened in the April 2nd of 2017.   

Pastor Takeshi Hattori

1981年京都生まれ。武志は精神的な病気を持つ父と、そんな夫への葛藤を覚える母の下で育ちました。武志が幼少の頃は母の影響により様々な宗教に通い、それに連れて行くうちに「神」という存在に対して嫌気をさした。また、そんな神から離れるがゆえ、自堕落な人生を歩みました。そこで出会ったのが当時の会社の社長の友人である山中知義牧師でした。彼を通して武志はキリスト教と出会いました。

2011年に、山中牧師とEvangelism Explosion (EE)をとおして、福音を聞き、救いの確信を得る。

2012年に、超自然的な体験をした後、伝道プログラムを習得。より家族の救いを求め、後に家族はキリスト教と出会うことになる。

2013年に、奈良県生駒にある聖書学院にて、三年間における実践も含めた学業を修学。

2016年から、より一層、山中牧師とともにフルタイムで教会の活動を担っている。
