Let's become a fruitful Christian!!

It is God's will that all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. (I Timothy 2:4)

"You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit-fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name." (John 15 :16 ) We were created under God's desire for us to be a fruitful Christian. We should keep growing after accepting Christ as our savior. The FRUIT is our character (Galatioans 5:22) and new lives that are brought by the Lord, by sharing Gospel. It is a clear God's will to be a Christian who makes these fruit.

We have been called by God to be fruitful Christians. This means that we should bear the Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22) and make new Disciples of Christ by sharing our faith and equipping new Christ Followers to be mature, self-sufficient Disciples of Christ who can continue the pattern of spiritual growth and discipleship (Matthew 28:19-20; 2 Timothy 2:2). One of our goals at Second Level is to help people learn how to engage with and disciple Japanese to become Mature Christ Followers. We are convinced that the equipping ministry of Japanese believers is essential to seeing Japan reached and transformed for Christ.

Second Level Ministry seeks to strengthen and encourage Japanese Christians as they grow into spiritual maturity! We hope that Second Level Ministry will be used as a place for Japanese Christians to be encouraged, learn Christian identity, and be a place of prayer. We believe God did not intend for believers to stop growing after being baptized, but to grow every day into mature, fruitful Christians who show the glory of God!

"So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ."

Ephesians 4:11-13
