aloha ke akua!

Welcome to our ohana! We're glad you found us. HCC is a family that is a wonderful mix of ages, cultures, personalities, gifts and talents. Whether you're just exploring the Christian faith, or you're a long-time believer, we want to help you on your journey. And if you're struggling with life's problems, we want to help. So if you're looking for a welcoming, safe, and warm atmosphere, family and youth programs, close friendships, in-depth Bible teaching, gospel-centered messages, and God-focused worship, we think you've come to the right place. We're not perfect, but each of us are under construction by God's Spirit. So check out this website, and see if this family is for you. And if you have any further questions about the Bible, Jesus Christ, the church's background, activities, or beliefs, please feel free to call or contact us. We're here to help. 


If you are a first-time visitor, even if you have no church experience, you will feel comfortable and at home. Our hope is that you will be led to sense the presence of God, such that you come away with awe, wonder, and a stronger faith in Jesus Christ. It is our hope and prayer that the services will honor God, exalt Jesus Christ, be led by the Holy Spirit, and be based on the Bible. You will notice that some people raise their hands during the service while others sit quietly and meditatively. People do this because they have found the ultimate joy in life through Jesus Christ.


We seek to be Biblical, placing great emphasis on Bible expository preaching, i.e. the explanation and life application of a text of Scripture. While Biblical, we also seek to be life-relevant. We are contemporary and relaxed in style.
