A Message From Pastors Harold And Christy Kilborn
Aloha! We trust that you will feel right at home as you join us in worship of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our desire is that through the singing, worship and ministry of the Word, you will enter into His Presence and be touched by the power of His Holy Spirit and that the name of Jesus will be lifted up and we will all be drawn to Him.
People can recognize the way Christians love others. It’s different than what is experienced in the world. As a church, we are continuously striving for relationships that build a strong community and help us grow in our love for Jesus. If you have a question, contact us for more information.
Watch Out! Once you come, you instantly become a part of our church family, so make yourself right at home. Join us!
Aloha Ke Akua (“with” the love of God),
Pastor Harold and Christy Kilborn
What We Believe
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God and inerrant in the original writings. We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that the lost and sinful man must be saved, and that man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. We believe in and practice the holy ordinance of water baptism, which signifies the believer’s death, burial, and resurrection into new life with Christ Jesus, and the regular celebration of Holy Communion as commanded by our Lord.
We believe in the present ministry and baptism of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved; those that are saved into the resurrection of life and those that are unsaved into the resurrection of damnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
