The Lord's Cross Christian Center(TLCCC) is a Protestant church. Pastor Paul Akimoto was led by God to plant a church. It was founded as the "Kokubunji Christian Center" in April 1984 in Kokubunji City, Tokyo, Japan.
TLCCC was started with Christ as the head of the church and as Chief Pastor. In the beginning Pastor Paul Akimoto was told by God to live by the principle of hearing and obeying the Lord for a plan our church.
God also showed Pastor Paul Akimoto that TLCCC daughter churches were going to be planted throughout the country and that we would be involved in overseas mission work.
In June 2002, we moved to Suginami Ward, Tokyo, and soon after that, the name of the church was given by God TLCCC Tokyo Antioch Church.
We have as arm of overseas mission work "The Water Flowing From The Sanctuary (WFS) Mission", which was established in 1989. Many short-term mission teams have been sent as the doors to mission were extensively opened in Asia, America, Europe, Africa, and the Middle-East. Long-term missionaries have been sent to the U.S.A, Canada, Czech, Cambodia, Brazil, and Israel. TLCCC churches have been planted in some of those areas, and orphanages were founded in the Philippines, Cambodia and Brazil. The WFS Mission also supports some seminary students and missionaries of other mission organizations abroad.
