What is your next step with God?

Connecting with a smaller group of people?

If you are looking for ways to connect with a smaller group of people than our weekend worship weekend crowd then there are several great spots that you could land.  We have 25-30 community groups that meet all around the Island on different nights of the week.  We invite you to find one that fits your family and schedule.  For a list of community groups click here!   

We also have a women's ministry that starts in a large group setting for worship and then breaks into smaller groups for a study time on Thursday mornings at 10 AM.  For more information on this ministry click here. 

Also, we have a men's ministry that meets on Thursday mornings at 5:30 AM or Thursday nights at 6PM.

For more information about our men's ministry email us at info@kozabaptistchurch.org.   




Baptism?

As a follower of Christ, we desire to identify with Christ.  Believer’s Baptism is our way of identifying with Christ and taking our firststeps of obedience in following His example. Some may have been baptized as an infant, but believer’s baptism follows a person’s desire to commit his/her life to Jesus Christ. It is a personal decision and not made by family or friends. This baptism was best demonstrated to us by Christ Himself when he was baptized 
by immersion.

If you are  a Christ-follower and are interested in being a part of our next baptism contact us at info@kozabaptistchurch.org.




Church Membership?

The difference between “attenders” and “members” can be summed up in one word: COMMITMENT.


We ask you to commit to membership for three reasons:


1. A biblical reason: Christ is committed to the church.

“…Christ loved the church, and He gave his life for it.” (Eph. 5:25)


2. A cultural reason: It is an antidote to our society.

We live in an age where very few want to be committed to anything…a job…a marriage…relationships. This attitude has produced a generation of “church shoppers and hoppers”. Membership swims against the current of America’s “consumer religion.” It is an unselfish decision. 
Commitment will always build character.


3. A personal reason: It produces spiritual growth.

While on Okinawa, you will have a choice. You can choose to jump in and get involved or look back in three years and ask, “What did I miss?” The New Testament places a major emphasis on the need for Christians to be accountable to each other for spiritual growth. You cannot be accountable when you’re not committed to any specific church family.


We invite you, if you are interested in learning more about Koza and what it means to "join our church," to the Discover Koza class which meets the 1st weekend of every month on Sunday, during the 10:45  AM service, upstairs, in Student Ministries Room.  No reservations needed.  If you would like more information about this contact us at info@kozabaptistchurch.org.


Serving?

A big part of growing in your spiritual walk is to jump in and begin serving in an area of need or an area of giftedness.


One of the easiest ways to do that is to begin serving during one of our weekend services.  We have several easy entry points into service through our first impression ministry by helping with coffee, handing out church information, or greeting people as they arrive.  If you are interested in serving on our "FIT" Team (First  Impressions Team) please let us know by emailing fit@kozabaptistchurch.org.  Once you become a member of Koza it opens up opportunities to begin serving in other important areas such as teaching in our preschool ministry and Koza Kids, becoming a Community group leader, or possibly even serving on our Worship Team.  If you would like more information about serving in specific areas contact us at info@kozabaptistchurch.org, or you can take a blue "Serving Card" from the back of the seats in the worship center, fill it out, and turn it in to our Welcome Desk and we will be in contact with you and get you plugged in. 



Mission Opportunities?

We also have opportunities for you to begin serving in our local community through our KO2 ministry (Koza Outreach Ministry), or on Mission trips throughout Asia.  Currently we have teams each year going to India, Cambodia, Philippines, and Mainland Japan.  If you would like more information on how to plug in locally and make a difference in our Okinawan community email us at localoutreach@kozabaptistchurch.org, or serving on one of our mission teams email us at info@kozabaptistchurch.org.
