We are a Christian church with emphasis on communal living, making the world around us a better, more peaceful place, while loving one another in Jesus Christ, our LORD.
Through structured daily schedule which includes early morning Bible study, people help each other and love one another in cleaning, cooking and other everyday chores. This living experience encourages them to become children of God in the Kingdom of God on earth where people love one another in unity, despite their differences.
We believe that faith is the most imperative to our life, followed by living and work. The order of these three elements, (faith, living and work) is very important for us to live for the Plan and Purpose of God.
Japan Ecclesia of Christ was originally established by Tatsuo Koike in 1989 who is the disciple of Kanzo Uchimura, a founder of “No Church Movement. Under Japan Ecclesia of Christ, there were 12 bands, one of which is Sapporo Band (Sapporo Ecclesia of Christ) and Keishin Mizutani (now known as Mikio) was put in charge of it. Sapporo band was now officially renamed as Japan Ecclesia of Christ in 2019. Japan Ecclesia of Christ in New York (JEC-NY) is a branch church of the newly renamed JEC-NY and was formed in October 2018. It is now under the 501c3 tax exempt status.
We believe in the verbal inspiration and inerrant nature of the Scriptures and the authority of both the Old and New Testaments.
We believe in the one true God, eternally exists in three persons called the Trinity. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. We believe in his virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, death, resurrection, ascension to the right hand of God, and his personal future return to earth in power and glory.
We believe the Holy Spirit is the Promise of the Father, the Comforter and the Guide who indwells every believer in Christ, bestows spiritual gifts upon them and convicts the world of sin.
We believe salvation is the gift of God by grace alone following repentance and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. This faith is to be manifested in works pleasing to God as we are being sanctified by the Holy Spirit.

Tea Ceremony/Bible Salons is now postponed until further notice.
Because there is a lot in common with the Christian spirit and the tea ceremony, which is the traditional art that Japan is proud of, we plan and hold Tea Ceremony/Bible Salons to think of daily discipline and activity by learning the tea ceremony, and to acquire the direction of life by learning Christian Bible.
This is a story about the teachings of the tea ceremony and the origin of the occasion by the tea ceremony master of the Sennorikyu School千利休流派. A bible message by the head of the New York Keisenjuku恵泉塾 (Life’s Harbor), a story about the relationship between tea ceremony and Christianity. Tea cake will be served.

We are to provide a loving, communal living for the weary and the overburdened at Keisenjuku (Life’s Harbor).
Life’s Harbor is a communal living entity where unique people love one another in unity based on the teachings of the Bible and is a fountain of life. A thirsty person can come to Keisenjuku and drink the water of life at no cost. Most of the visitors say “There was something holy about this place. I sensed God’s presence.” Keisenjuku was established in 1995 at the rural farming place in Yoichi, Hokkaido in Japan by pastor Mikio Mizutani and his family. It now has grown to the community where 70-80 dedicated people live together. It even has spread to other areas in Japan and abroad. JEC-NY provides Life’s Harbor in New York as well in a smaller scale for those who need the fountain of life.
The church is the representative of Jesus on earth and is to carry out the Great Commission. The Ministry requires a divinely called and scripturally ordained minister who is to be provided by God to lead the church in evangelization, worship, building the body, and general leadership of the church.
We believe that through the victorious redemptive work of Christ on the cross, we are free from the power of the enemy – sins, greed, lies, sickness, torment, and spiritual death.
We practice two ordinances: (1) Water Baptism by full immersion in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, after repenting of one’s sins and receiving the gift of salvation. (2) Holy Communion as an experience of oneness with Christ by taking bread and wine (body and blood of Jesus Christ) and by remembering the Christ’s self-sacrifice on the cross for our salvation.
We believe that true faithful life in Christ requires daily Bible reading, constant prayers, and act of loving (edifying) others even in a self-sacrificial way.
