Each weekend we gather as family and friends to encourage and inspire each other in the faith. We understand that schedules are busy, so you can join us on Saturday night or Sunday morning.
21 days of prayer
We have made it a priority to seek God first in prayer. We do this collectively as a church on January 7, 2019 – January 26, 2019 through 21 Days of Prayer. Together, we faithfully seek God first, trusting in His power alone to create lasting impact in our lives.
weekly life groups
Life Groups are small group communities that do life together. We feature various Life Groups that you can be a part of at multiple locations across the westside of Oahu.

nhk connecting point: a new year
by sr. pastor glenn yamaguchi
Happy New Year! We are a couple days into 2019 as I write this, and it is a crisp Hawaii winter morning. I love it! But even though I have enjoyed all the holiday feasting a little too much (I think I’m not alone) and the great cooler weather, I know I need more. I need God in this new year that will bring new opportunities and new challenges.
So, as the Holy Spirit says: "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion, during the time of testing in the desert, Hebrews 3:7-8
God wants you and I to hear his voice and to be responsive to Him as we begin the New Year. It is not enough to either hear God’s voice, nor to be responsive to Him, we need both. Just living in the world has a hardening effect on our hearts. So, you and I must choose to not let our hearts be hardened as we live in this world. Sometimes if we haven’t heard God’s voice in a while, we need to get into position to hear his voice. We need to position our hearts to hear him a fresh. We need to be in a position that when he blesses us we can receive the blessing.
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13
And God will reveal himself when you seek him. We need to seek God to know Him, not just to hear him speak or receive His blessings. But when you seek Him to know Him, you usually end up with both.
Quiet your soul.
With all the business of the Holidays we need not to just quiet down our life, we need to quiet down our soul to hear him. We often cannot hear Him speak because of the noise in our soul. Turn off the TV, the electronics, get off the phone. Sometimes we can’t hear God because we are still solving work problems in our time away from work or minds are so addicted to adrenaline from crushing candy or shooting bad guys in our games.
See yourself the way He sees you.
Watch your self talk. Sometimes we might say – God doesn’t talk to me. I can’t hear him. He might do stuff for others but he doesn’t do that for me. I can’t change, that’s just the way I am. No. No. That’s not true. Instead of agreeing with what your experience has been, what the world and the devil says about you, start agreeing with God what God says about you. Start aligning your life with God. Start believing what he says is true about you. Start – leaning into that and believing for those things.
My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand. John 10:27-29
You are God’s sheep. He knows you. You can hear his voice. You can follow Him. He gives you eternal life. No one can steal you from him. God the Father has given you to Jesus. Then let’s just do as he says! Praying you are blessed beyond your past experiences this year.
Join us for our new series starting this weekend – FLOURISH as we look at God’s wisdom to advance in 2019.
Seeking Him and His Direction in 2019,
