Imizu City 射水市 is located approximately in the center of Toyama Prefecture, between the two adjacent cities of Toyama and Takaoka. There are 94,649 people that inhabit this vital port city next to the Sea of Japan, and only one Baptist Church.



Mayor Motoshi Natsuno

“Imizu City is rich in agricultural produce, fish and seafood, and with its port, JR line stations, and access to expressways, it occupies a key position in both sea and land transport networks, making it a wonderful city with great potential for the future.”

I have found two churches in Imizu city. Only one of those is Baptist. With 94,649 people, that’s a big job for one Baptist Church. Praise the Lord that there is at least one church preaching the gospel to this key city. This place is filled with farmers and fishermen that have never heard the Gospel! Matt. 4:19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. Let’s pray that the Name of Christ would rise in the city of Imizu! Would you pray, asking God what your part might be in reaching this city?
