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 of 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.
