Meet Our Pastor  & His Wife

Pastor Ed and Mrs. Elvie Navato.
We are delighted to have you visit with us! We believe that your visit will be refreshing, friendly and enjoyable for your whole family.
Maranatha Baptist Church has ministered to the U.S. military, civilians and local nationals here on Okinawa since 1968.
Our heartfelt prayer is for people to know the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and become actively involved in a Bible-believing, Bible-preaching church that cares for them.
We want you to experience inspiring music, helpful teaching and preaching, friendly people and a place where you feel welcome and “at home.”
