Welcome

Since 1930, we have opened our doors to serve the local San Francisco Community & beyond. Our ministers are here to listen and provide spiritual support. The congregation is here to welcome you as part of our Konko Family.

Our community is characterized by acceptance and appreciation, providing a safe space for discussing, exploring and sharing faith beyond religious boundaries, free from dogma and judgement.
 

We believe that everyone is a child of “Kami”. Everyone belongs. 

The term “Kami” refers to the source of life. Kami is the divine universal parent that embodies the wonders of nature, the great spirit, and other expressions for the spiritual essence of the universe.  

Kami cares for you unconditionally, regardless of your race, religion, gender, orientation or opinions. 

 

Our aim is to practice gratitude towards Kami as part of our way of living. 

We practice gratitude throughout each day with acts of kindness and care towards each other and the world we call home.       

We have learned that true fulfillment and joy come from practicing and living with genuine, sincere  gratitude.

Kami’s golden light

Fills my heart with gratitude

Joy and fulfillment
