Hawaii Kai Community Church (HKCC)
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.

Christ Our Sanctifier
The Laver symbolizes sanctification, a daily cleansing from sin and the empowerment to live as God intends through Jesus living in our hearts. The laver symbol represents a vessel containing water that the priest used in the temple of the Old Testament to wash his hands and feet before entering the Holy Place.
