Vision & Mission of Asian Access/Japan

Because Asian Access/Japan is considered the first among equals -- where our ministry began in 1967 -- it reflects a mature ministry. Few countries have a vision and mission statement in place yet, but our work in Japan has been guided by these statements for many years.

Prior to the name change in 2002, this was our mission statement in Japan:

LIFE Ministries exists to start and strengthen Japanese churches in partnership with visionary pastors and congregations through innovation in evangelism and leadership training.

Mission of Asian Access/Japan

"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."

Vision of Asian Access/Japan

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.
