Fukuoka Bible Church
Welcome to Fukuoka Bible Church. For those of you who may have difficulty reading Japanese, we hope this page will help you know who we are and where you can find us. Though most of the pages are in Japanese, we hope you enjoy the pictures, and if you have a Japanese friend you would like to share a sermon with, we have YouTube channel and podcast. If you’re in the neighborhood, we also hope to meet you someday!
Fukuoka Bible Church (福岡聖書教会) is a Protestant church that was planted by the Japan Evangelical Church Association, also known as JECA (日本福音キリスト教会連合), in cooperation with North Miyazaki Bible Christian Church (宮崎北聖書キリスト教会). We started our first Sunday service in April 2010. God has been so gracious to grant us our own church building in 2016. Wherever you are from, we warmly welcome you to fellowship with us. Though our Sunday service is conducted in Japanese, English interpretation is available.
After working as a pastor in the Kansai area of Japan for over 30 years, Pastor Inoue and his wife Emi arrived in Fukuoka in June 2009 and launched Fukuoka Bible Church in April 2010.For the first ten years, Pioneers missionaries cooperated with this Church plant. Missionaries who helped this project are the Hoisingtons , Stephanie Schatz and the Toms. They finished their work after working alongside Pastor Inoue in effort to build up FBC.

Coping with COVID-19:
As of Oct 3rd, we are now resuming our in-person Sunday service, Wednesday/Thursday Bible Study and Prayer Meeting. To keep the social distance, we placed extra TV monitors in our kitchen and meeting room so people can spread out more in the church building. Please wear a non-woven mask (if you do not have one, you can receive one at reception table ).
