National Christian Council in Japan (NCCJ)

National Christian Council in Japan (NCCJ) is made up of 31 member and associate member churches and organizations. Christians make up a little less than 1% of the population of Japan, but have influenced this country in many ways through education, welfare, human rights, women's concerns, and peace advocacy. NCCJ networks with other Christian councils, particularly in other Asian countries, and is a member of the Christian Conference of Asia (CCA) as well as a related organization of the World Council of Churches. Working ecumenically and with people of other faiths in Japan and abroad, NCCJ is striving to bring justice and peace to our world today.
