Worship At Church

We Welcome Everyone

We welcome everyone to attend and participate in our Tenrikyo Service, where we pray to God the Parent for World Salvation. Conducted in both Japanese and English*, the service consists of songs, live music, and dance that remind us that God’s intention of creating human beings was to lead a joyous life with each other on Earth.

The service is performed by 15 members of the church congregation, while the rest sing along. Each verse of the service reminds us how we can reach the goal one day sooner.

If you are truly of a mind to save others, there is no need for the persuasion of God.

If you lead your life in joy each day, truth will prevail.

All of you throughout the world are brothers and sisters. There should be no one called an outsider.
