Welcome to Be One Osaka!

We are a Christian church, meeting in the Hommachi area of downtown Osaka. We place a high value on meaningful worship, rejoicing in the outrageous grace of our heavenly Father through Christ. In a stressful and lonely world, we aim to be a caring community for all generations. Come and check us out. We’ll make you welcome but give you plenty of time and space to find your own level! We are a relatively new group, expanding steadily. That means that while we try to keep our website up-to-date, we sometimes miss things so before you come to a meeting, message us to confirm the details!

One Thing

One Thing is a time of fervent prayer and worship, waiting on God together and being filled again with the Holy Spirit. David’s “one thing” in Psalm 27:4 and Mary’s “one thing” in Luke 10:42 are our inspiration. The meeting is not really geared to new people – if you’ve never been in church before, you might prefer to start with the Saturday or Sunday Worship.

Sunday, 2:30-4:00 pm
Hommachi Eight Building, 4F

Following Jesus

Following Jesus is a course of study to help people take their first steps as followers of Jesus. There are 12 lessons: Intro: The Heart of God; Step One, The Greatest Commandment; 2, Repent and believe; 3, Be baptized; 4A, Power from heaven; 4B Receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit; 5, Listen and obey; 6, Love one another; 7, Break bread; 8, Pray; 9, Give; 10, Make disciples. It’s a very practical course to help you first to learn, then to put it into practice and next to teach others what you just learned. 

We hold courses anywhere and anytime, according to people’s needs and availability. (Available in English, Japanese and Chinese!)

Ministry School

Every believer is called to be a disciple and to touch others with God’s love. This school is in Japanese, and aims to equip each participant to become a worker, practicing ministry skills (for example, how to lead people to Christ, how to lead small groups and take Holy Communion) and understanding key Bible truths.

BMS (Be One Ministry School) is held in Japanese on Zoom every Wednesday 8:00-9:15pm. Attendance is open to those who have completed Following Jesus and are journeying with us as a church.

Fellowship Groups

Our vision is to multiply fellowship groups and spread the love of God all over Kansai, in many places and many different times. Many people can’t come to Hommachi at the weekend, so we take church to them, to homes, offices and campuses.  

Your Children

We are passionate about helping children follow Jesus, supporting parents to raise their kids well as well as helping parents and children to worship together!

Other Ministries/Events

Family Camp

Our annual church family camp is a big event in our calendar, getting away together to study and worship, to play and to eat together! Some of our Tohoku Be One family also join us.

Youth

We have a monthly Youth program, combining teens and young adults, including social activities (board games, takoyaki party etc) as well as worship and sharing of the Word of God.

Finding Us

Be One Osaka

Be One, 4th Floor, Hommachi Eight Building, 3-3-2 Hommachi Minami, Chuo-ku, Osaka City
Tel 070-4294-7769 (Jumpei Saeki)

Hommachi Station (Midosuji Line, Chuo Line of the Osaka Metro) is a 5-minute ride from Osaka Umeda to the north and 4 minutes from Namba to the south. Take Exit 7: go out the ticket gate, go down a short staircase, straight ahead to the escalator (or elevator just to the right); go up to the street level; turn left into the main road (Midosuji); walk 50 meters; then left again at Hard Rock Café and walk eastwards about 100 meters (parallel to the overhead motorway) just past Akachan Honpo ( a baby-goods emporium) and just before Matsuya (a restaurant). The road frontage is quite narrow – if you get to Matsuya (まつや), you’ve gone too far! Altogether, about 3 minutes’ walk from the station!
