Why We Exist
Hawai‘i is the only state in the nation that is experiencing faster growth in church attendance than in its population, and yet the number of people who attend evangelical churches in Hawai‘i remains lower than eight percent. Many of those believers are mired in a soul-sapping approach to faith that says God will help us reach our innate potential and find personal fulfillment if we earn his favor through the right attitudes and actions. This is not the gospel. While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us, and he now reigns over an expanding kingdom on earth. Centered in this freeing reality, our partnership of churches is working to see Jesus bring true life, transformation, and God-glorifying ministry success as the Holy Spirit applies this biblical gospel to our lives, families, and congregations.
Who We Are
As a partnership of island churches, we are united by the Gospel Coalition Confessional Statement and Theological Vision for Ministry, which describes a gospel-driven approach to individual and church life.
What We Do
Our goal is to multiply gospel-centered churches across the islands and around the world. Our strategy has three parts:
- CONNECT pastors and leaders through fellowship and networking events.
- BUILD leaders and churches through training events and conferences.
- SEND church-planters and missionaries to launch new gospel communities, through a partnership for training, coaching, and support.
