Stomping beats, blaring guitars, dancing youths in front of a glittering stage, I stand a little offside in the dark, reach out my arm and sing along to the unknown song. Around me resonates the many-voiced pop-Alleluia of hundreds of Japanese and foreigners. The church is called Jesus Lifehouse , and in it my body feels as if it was time-traveling — back to the youth events in Germany that helped shape my teenage faith. Was I back to my roots? That was last year in July. During my university times I had distanced myself much from the evangelical movement. Kick-start a new life.

I am a professional historian at a highly respected college in Tokyo. I attended Jesus Lifehouse for over a year. I was very involved. After having several meetings with many of the leaders and learning more about the goals of Jesus Lifehouse and learning more about the method of practicing Christianity, I have no doubt in my mind that Jesus Lifehouse is a cult. I left the church under no hard feelings.

Hello, my name is Adam! First, a little about me. I came to Japan by myself after God placed a vision in me for this beautiful country. I wanted to outreach and see the younger generation of Japan come to know Jesus, so I knew the first thing I needed to do after moving to Japan was find a church with the same vision as mine, and the first place I wanted to check out was Lifehouse Tokyo. I first discovered Lifehouse Tokyo while searching the web.
