Our Church History
In 1996 Pastor Paul Suzuki started Life Chapel with several friends.
They didn’t have a place to have service on the first Sunday, so they went out to Hakone Mountain and had the first service there.
After about 1 year, they moved to Shonandai where Pastor Paul always had a vision to start a church.
They first rented a space near the station only on Sundays then rented a room monthly, then moved to Kameino in 2005 where the current church building was built.
We have been praying and reaching out from here to the world.
Flood the Nations 「神のいのちを全世界に」
Our vision is to flood the nations with the life of God.
The life of God is in the love of Jesus.
We want everyone to receive this life of God, to grow, and to flow the love of Jesus to the people around us and to the world. (Eze 47:1-12)

If it is your first time at Life Chapel…
What is a church? Who are Christians? What’s the Bible? These are the questions many people have…
- What is a church? Who are Christians?
- Christians believe Jesus Christ as God and Savior. And church is a place where Christians gather together and worship Him.
- I am not a Christian. Can I attend the service?
- Of course! Everyone is welcome! Please come and join us.
- What do you do at church? What is a Sunday Service?
- We sing praise song, pray, read the Bible and listen to the Pastor’s message. You can attend with no preparation.
- What is the Bible?
- The Bible is the book which is written about God’s love for us. Stories in the Bible are not made-up stories, but true history.
- What should I wear?
- You can wear casual clothing to church.
- What should I bring?
- You can just bring yourself. We can lend the Bible.
- I don’t know praise songs.
- It is not a problem to not sing if you don’t know the songs. We have lyrics on the monitor, so if you can sing, let’s sing together.
