Vision: 
Our vision statement is "Jesus to every Japanese, Jesus every day." "Jesus to every Japanese" means that we seek to reach as many Japanese as possible with the Gospel through missions to Japan and South America, as well as reaching out to Japanese students/business families here in the US. "Jesus every day" refers to our domestic ministries which includes AACF, summer camps, music and sports ministries to encourage believers to live each day for Jesus.
