We’re a place of refuge, redemption, and resurgence for Honolulu.

VISIT US THIS SUNDAY

GOSPEL

Jesus died on the cross to take away our sin, give us new life, and become our king. We do everything by the power of the cross.

 

COMMUNITY

Jesus lives in perfect fellowship with the Father and Holy Spirit. Like the Trinity, we do everything in the context of community.

 

MISSION

Jesus' mission is to build a growing kingdom of grace and love on earth. We do everything in light of his redemptive mission.

 

GLORY

Jesus lives to bring glory to the Father. We do everything to glorify God above all else, and we want to influence others to do the same.

 

What It Means To Pray "Forgive Us Our Debts"

When we pray “forgive us our debts,” we’re saying, “Lord, help us to see the enormity of your forgiveness.” God didn’t just wave a magic wand in the air to forgive us. Jesus had to go through the agony of the cross, the horror of God’s wrath, and the soul-crushing loneliness of his heavenly father turning his back on him and abandoning him.

You’re In.

God doesn’t say “stay away.” He says “Come all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

How to Make a Difference Without Adding Anything to Your Schedule

So you want to make a difference in the world, but you don’t feel like you have a spare minute in your schedule to add anything. What are you supposed to do? Jesus gave us a great suggestion: “When you give a dinner or a banquet, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, lest they also invite you in return and you be repaid. But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you” (Luke 14:12-14).

What Gives You Wings

What energizes you? What gets you out of the bed in the morning? What keeps you going all day? What keeps you moving forward in life? As a certain energy drink company would ask the question, what gives you wings?

Three Ways Busy People Can Change the World

Paul says in Romans 12:1, “In light of the mercies of God … present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.” In other words, “Considering all that God has already given you, ask yourself what can you give to him and to the people around you.” But how do we know we’re serving in the right way? How do we know we’re giving effectively? How do we know we’re really blessing the world, not just spinning our wheels?

You Have All The Wisdom You Need

When’s the last time you thought about breathing? You instinctively take in oxygen, because there’s always an abundant supply of air all around you. In the same way, God’s wisdom is always available to us through the presence of his Holy Spirit.
