go2japan is a free website to explore what it's like to serve as an Asian Access missionary in Japan in partnership with SIM.

Asian Access is a vibrant community of leaders committed to develop, multiply and transform across Asia.

Our Vision

"To see a vibrant community of servant leaders with vision, character and competence leading the church across Asia."

Our Mission

"To identify, develop and release emerging kingdom leaders to unite the church, multiply leaders and congregations, and extend the transforming power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ."

go2japan, then, is a part of something bigger—a movement focused on all of Asia.

At the same time, we realize the need for a website devoted to those exploring various options for serving in Japan as missionaries with Asian Access. And that is why go2japan.org has been born.

go2japan provides both articles and a community of missionaries to help people like you explore, connect, and prepare for ministry in Japan. Please register today and join the community!

We are A2 missionaries!

The go2japan team consists of current Asian Access missionaries and staff, alumni who have returned to North America after serving in Japan, as well as people interested in possibly serving in the future at some point.

Essentially, we feel strongly enough about recruiting new workers for the harvest field of Japan that we carve out time in our busy schedules to talk about Japan and what it's like to serve here with Asian Access. And because we are missionaries, we understand the questions you may have about serving in this country.

 

We are Here for You

This dedicated "A2 Community" is here to serve you. There are wonderfully gifted people available here to talk with you, to answer your questions (and maybe to ask you questions, too), and to pray for you. Take advantage of this resource as you seek God for direction in serving Him.

Asian Access (formerly known as "Language Institute For Evangelism" and "LIFE Ministries") pioneered English Teaching as an effective form of evangelism in the 1970s and now has over 3,000 alumni who have served as individuals or on teams in over 600 churches across Japan over the last 48 years. These alumni have touched over 100,000 Japanese people with the gospel of Jesus Christ!

Our Mission

"To identify, develop and release emerging kingdom leaders to unite the church, multiply leaders and congregations, and extend the transforming power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ."

Mission Statement

Our Vision

Asian Access/Japan seeks to deploy 100 church multiplication teams:

  • To establish 1,000 reproducing congregations...
  • which will enfold 1 million new followers of Christ,
  • who will in turn send 1,000 missionaries from Japan to the cities of Asia, that will be home to...
  • 1 billion people by the year 2020 AD.

This statement serves as the over-arching vision and goal toward which all the efforts of Asian Access/Japan are focused. The primary outcome for which we are aiming is the establishment of 1,000 reproducing congregations. The primary means of achieving that goal is deploying 100 church multiplication teams. This becomes doable when it is broken down into regions and then broken down into three-year cycles.

The goal can be accomplished by a regional focus of selecting, training, and deploying ten teams over the course of the next twenty years, in each of the ten regions. The establishment of the Regional Training Networks is for the singular purpose of helping to identify and develop those with the highest aptitude and the deepest commitment to the vision of church multiplication.

Not one of the 1,000 churches which will be established will be owned or managed by Asian Access. Every one of them will be in response to the initiative and under the leadership of established Japanese denominations and pastors.

Our Statement of Faith

  1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
  2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, and in His personal return in power and glory.
  4. We believe that for the salvation of the lost and sinful people regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
  5. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
  6. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
  7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, who comprise the church which is His body.

We are committed to building and nurturing a love relationship with God—a relationship of the heart as well as the head. We long to experience God spiritually and emotionally as well as intellectually. This love relationship grows lifelong disciples of Jesus—men and women of God whose lives and ministries flow out of being rather than just doing.

I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. (John 15:5)

Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with...

 

Our Core Values

 

ALL IN with God

all in 500x221We are committed to building and nurturing a love relationship with God—a relationship of the heart as well as the head. We long to experience God spiritually and emotionally as well as intellectually. This love relationship grows lifelong disciples of Jesus—men and women of God whose lives and ministries flow out of being rather than just doing.

  • I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. (John 15:5)
  • Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. (Deuteronomy 6:4-5)
  • One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple. (Psalm 27:4)

More info: Read "ALL IN with God" post by Joe Handley

 


LIVE Community

live community 500x272Vibrant, transformational Christian life is lived in community. We really are better together. We are committed to developing communities of Jesus followers that bridge ethnic, language, cultural, and denominational barriers. Asian Access’ learning communities create an environment that unites the Church, multiplies leaders and congregations, and extends the transforming power of the gospel.

  • A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples if you love one another. (John 13:34-35)
  • All the believers were together and had everything in common. (Acts 2:44)
  • How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity! (Psalm 133:1)

 


ACCELERATE Kingdom Leaders

accelerate 500x117One way God makes Himself known is through empowered and released Kingdom leaders. In Asian Access, these leaders are nurtured, trained, and set free to make a fruitful difference. They reproduce like-minded, disciple-making leaders; plant multiplying churches and faith communities; foster networks of Jesus followers in their homes, offices, the workplace and the nations. These released Kingdom leaders play a vital part in growing God’s Kingdom in Asia and, ultimately, the world.

  • You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus, and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. (2 Timothy 2:1-2)
  • And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, [the church] multiplied. (Acts 9:31b)
  • Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the LORD your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. (Deuteronomy 31:6)
