IJCS 18th Anniversary !

IJCS started by one faithful Singaporean lady's prayer.
During the Japanese occupation of Singapore (1942-1945),  the school she founded was confiscated by Japanese Army and her father was killed by Japanese.
She was struggled with hatred toward Japanese.  But she finally could forgive Japanese and ask his son who became a pastor and later became Exective Director of Singapore Baptist Conventeion, to ask Japanese Baptist to send Japanese missionaries for Japanese in Singapore.
With strong request of Singapore Baptist Convention, Japan Baptist Conventon decided to send the first missionaries to Singapore,  Rev.Toru and Mrs. Kimiko Kato.
They started the first worship service at the missionary housing on July 28th, 1996.
IJCS was named on that day, from September of this year, IJCS moved to Luthern Church then Kay Poh Road Baptist Church.  We have been worshiping at Kay Poh Road Baptist Church for 15 years.
Today, we have many Singaporean congregation and people from different nationalities. Childrens are growing at church.
We give thanks to the Lord and repent ourselves then have made our committement to move forward.
