Hawaii Kai Community Church (HKCC)

Our Church:

Hawaii Kai Community Church (HKCC) is part of The Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA); a denomination of 20,000 churches worldwide with 3.5 million worshipers, that is committed to spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world. Our church was founded in 1980, when five families from Kapahulu Bible Church were sent to plant a church in Hawaii Kai. God has blessed us in many ways over the years and has allowed us to develop into a close-knit, family-like congregation, as we serve Him. Although HKCC is based in Hawaii Kai, many of us come from various neighborhoods across the Island.

The church has utilized facilities in various locations: 1) Kaiser High School chorus room; 2) Cafeteria of the Japan Institute Of Management Services; 3) Koko Head Elementary School, 4) Aina Haina Church of God; 5) Niu Valley Intermediate School and finally finding a more permanent home at the building located at 6650 Hawaii Kai Drive (2nd floor).

We are committed to these purposes as a church: (from Purpose Driven Church by Rick Warren)
  • Worship - we were planned for God's pleasure
  • Fellowship - we were formed for God's family
  • Discipleship - we were created to become like Christ
  • Ministry - we were shaped for serving God
  • Evangelism - we were made for a mission (to tell others about the "Good News" of Jesus Christ)

The HKCC Mission Statement:

The Hawaii Kai Community Church will be a body of believers who consistently live out the Great Commandment (Mark 12:29-31) and the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20).

The HKCC Vision Statement:

The Hawaii Kai Community Church will be a light and haven in our community; reaching out and drawing people to Jesus Christ through the power of His love.

Through the years, we have attempted to make an impact in the east Oahu community by reaching out to families. The church was instrumental in assisting Kaiser High School to have their first Baccalaureate Service with Rep. Dave Stegmaier as well as provided support to the Hawaii Youth for Christ group in youth functions and outreaches. Pastor Andy also helped out many grieving families in Hawaii Kai who suffered losses through accidents, suicide and other tragic situations. For many years, the church was involved in the Independence Day At Maunalua 4th of July event and most recently in the Hawaii Kai Strong group to help our community to be functioning and resilient when disaster happens in our area. Finally, HKCC hosted an event called "Live Music 4U" several times. This event provided live music entertainment and food free of charge to the community.
