Less than 1% of Japan’s 126 million know Jesus.

By God’s grace we aim to see a vibrant church impacting every community.

The Task Unfinished in Japan

Nearly 500 towns or villages don’t have a church. Only about 0.45% of the people in areas where OMF works are Christians.

God is at work in Japan, but we long for many more to be reached for Jesus. Be part of what God is doing and join us in praying for and serving the Japanese.

In East Asia there are

667 MILLION people

without access to the gospel.

Rugby World Cup in Japan: God-given opportunity

When Richard, a new missionary, tried to join a rugby club in Japan, he quickly discovered that most activities happen on Sundays when he was expected to be a church. That is not an uncommon problem for Christians wanting to be involved in organised sport in Japan.

Reaching Japanese people through Bible camps

It was over 35 years since Yoshi had come to faith at a Bible camp in northern Japan. He wondered, “Was it still operating?” He and his wife decided to go and find out.
