Yokosuka Baptist Church was started in order to reach our U.S. Military, their families, and the Yokosuka-shi community with the gospel of Jesus Christ.  With this commitment and sincere desire to please Jesus Christ, this ministry continues by the Grace of God.

Pastor Bio:

Pastor Mark Sage is from Ohio.  He graduated High School 1988, graduating two weeks early in order to join the U.S. Marine Corps.  He became a Christian when he was a boy, but ran from God as a teenager.  It was not until he was stationed on Okinawa that he got his life on track for God.  The reason was because of a small church that was interested in reaching the military with the gospel and helping them to grow in their walk with Christ.  His life has never been the same since November of 1988.  He followed the Lordís leading and surrendered his life to preach the gospel.  Later, after the Marines, he went to study Pastoral Theology at Oklahoma Baptist College where he graduated in 1998.  He then served two years as an assistant pastor.  Early in the year of 2000, he and his family surrendered to be military missionaries.  In 2002 they went to Puerto Rico and started Victory Baptist Church in order to reach the military and civilians in the San Juan area.  In September of 2005, he became the Pastor of Yokosuka Baptist Church.  His wife Stephanie, who originates from the Chicago area, and their daughters Hannah, Elisabeth, and Rachel accompany him.
