Who We Are, What We Believe, and What We Do

Vision and Mission of Second Level Ministry

Our mission is to support the spiritual growth of Japanese Christians – the process of maturing as a disciple of Christ.
Our vision is to see disciples being multiplied: Disciples of Christ multiplying themselves by making disciples, based on the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20 and 2 Timothy 2:2.   
Our ministry is to provide spiritual support for those who have been saved and who disciple others, specifically: Discipling and Mentoring, Training, Soul Care and Resources – All from a Japanese perspective.

Our Belief

Core Values of Second Level Ministry


In order that each believer becomes a true disciple of Christ who can glorify God, we seek the way of life and the faith that God desires. We focus on following Christ and being transformed to be more like Him, to bring God glory. (John 15:8, Ephesians 5:1 NASB )

 2:Obedience and Application of God’s Word

We value obedience to God’s Word. Out of our love for God, we seek to learn, obey, and apply His words to our lives. We aim to raise up true worshipers of Christ who know and live out God’s Word and love. We insist that spiritual growth is through God’s Word, not specific discipleship methodology. (John 14:21, 2 Timothy 4:2-4 )


We believe in the multiplication of disciples, that full obedience to Jesus means a disciple of Christ is to teach others to make disciples of Christ (spiritual multiplication). (Matthew 28:18-20, 2 Timothy 2:2)

 4:The Holy Spirit

In everything, have confidence in the guidance of the Holy Spirit and work to entrust yourself to God’s plan. (Philippians 1:6, Philippians 2:13, John 17:6-11)
