Japanese Evangelicals have been present in Brazil for a period of 60 years. During the ’50s they began to structure themselves as an organized church. In 1958 the Kyodan (cf. Japan no. 1) sent a pastor, Motoi Munakata, to minister to the group’s spiritual needs. He first served the church, which is today the Evangelical Alliance Church and which unites persons of Reformed and Arminian persuasions. In 1967 he left the leadership of this church and founded the Evangelical Church of S?o Paulo, where he remained until 1979 when he returned to Japan. The problems which led to the division of the church in Brazil had more to do with ideology than with theology. Although the community consisted of a small number of members, one has to take into consideration that, given the presence of Japanese immigrants in Brazil over a period of more than 80 years, the second and third generations, being acculturated, have joined a variety of Brazilian Evangelical Churches.
