FEBC’s Impact

While Japan’s official policy on religion suggests freedom of choice, the truth is quite different: those who attend a church are oftentimes ostracized by family and friends.

This is especially acute in a group-oriented society like Japan’s, where people make decisions based on the good of the group, not the individual. If someone belongs to a group out of the norm, such as Christianity, he is often cut off from familial attachments. This makes FEBC’s role all the more important, as we try to be both a teaching ministry and a worship service for a large number of listeners fearful of attending a church.

Director of FEBC Japan, Kao Suzuki

Broadcasting Ministry

FEBC-Japan produces radio programs from its studios in Tokyo, Japan, which means FEBC is the only Christian broadcasting company in all of Japan. These programs are aired 75 minutes a day from a high power 250 kw medium wave transmitter on the island of Jeju in South Korea, which is strong enough to reach all of Japan.  The Jeju Station is owned and operated by FEBC-Korea. Daily broadcasts can also be heard on FEBC-Japan’s website.

Station

FEBC Japan airs their programs via AM radio from FEBC-Korea’s station 1566 AM in Jeju.

Types of Programs

100% of FEBC Japan’s content are Christian. They include sermons, Bible studies, counselling programs, worship music, and testimonies.

Other Support Ministries

FEBC-Japan developed a church/pastor visitation project 13 years ago, which involves staff visiting churches all over Japan and encouraging people who tune into their broadcasts. For those unfamiliar with the radio program, literature and CDs are provided.

MP3 Players

Most of the programs are distributed by MP3 discs and also available online. Since 1980, FEBC-Japan has offered a Bible Correspondence Course to listeners and currently receives more than 300 letters/month from listeners/students.

Listener Response

In 2015, 3,378+ listeners called, emailed, or texted our offices in Japan.
