Sunday Worship in Nagoya

Yesterday I visited All Nations Church, a body of believers in Nagoya, that was planted by Christ Bible Seminary. Michael Oh spoke on Psalm 46, and the difference it makes to know that God is with us in our times of need. It was an appropriate selection for what I have seen this week:

Psalm 46:1-11:

God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change And though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea;
Though its waters roar and foam, Though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. Selah.
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, The holy dwelling places of the Most High.
God is in the midst of her, she will not be moved; God will help her when morning dawns.
The nations made an uproar, the kingdoms tottered; He raised His voice, the earth melted.
The LORD of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our stronghold. Selah.
Come, behold the works of the LORD, Who has wrought desolations in the earth.
He makes wars to cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two; He burns the chariots with fire.
“Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
The LORD of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our stronghold. Selah.

Here is a clip of worship at ANC. If you discount the use of Japanese language, the style and content of the worship is very close to that of most any evangelical church in the US.
