About Christian Commons

Christian Commons is a non-profit organization in Japan established in 2021 for spreading the teachings of the Bible and correcting the misunderstandings of the Bible found in “new teachings” like New Apostolic Reformation and Prosperity Gospel in Japan.

Beliefs

  • We are a traditional evangelical organization (not Charismatic nor Pentecostal) that believes the inerrancy and sufficiency of the Scripture.
  • We hold a classical dispensational view on the Scripture.
  • We hold pre-millenial second coming and pre-tribulational rapture views.
  • We reject replacement theology, which replaces Israel with Church in many parts of the Scripture when teaching it.

Founder

Takashi Sano: Graduated from Doshisha University in Kyoto, Japan, and worked for about 10 years for Harvest Time Ministries, a Protestant (Evangelical) Christian organization that have been proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ since 1986 and broadcasted the TV program “Harvest Time” for 24 years throughout Japan. I started working at the organization as an editor-translator, and later the chief editor of the Japanese Edition of the “Israel Today“, a magazine published by Messianic Jews in Israel. Then I engaged in translating the TV programs from Japanese to English and news sources used for them from English to Japanese. I was responsible for starting up the Internet Ministry of Harvest Time Ministries after the TV program ended in 2010. I’m a translator by occupation (English to Japanese and Japanese to English) with over 20 years of experience.
