Come, Grow & GO!
Mililani Community Church exists to glorify God by leading people to faith in Jesus Christ, helping them grow to maturity in Christ, equipping them for their ministry to one another in the Body of Christ and training them to impact the world for Christ.
Jesus said: “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” Matthew 28:19-20
“So we continue to preach Christ to each person, using all wisdom to warn and to teach everyone, in order to bring each one into God’s presence as a mature person in Christ” Colossians 1:28
Calling people to the four basic commitments of a growing disciple of Jesus Christ…
KNOWING CHRIST: A Commitment to Membership
Coming to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and membership in His family.
GROWING IN CHRIST: A Commitment to Maturity
Growing in personal godliness and Christ-like maturity through a knowledge and application of God’s Word to our lives.
SERVING CHRIST: A Commitment to Ministry
Discovering, developing and deploying our spiritual gifts for God’s glory in ministry to others
SHARING CHRIST: A Commitment to Missions
Sharing the Good News with lost people in a sensitive and relevant way, and becoming committed to evangelism and world missions.
OUR CORE VALUES…
We believe in the power, authority and relevance of God’s Word to change and direct lives. Therefore we are a Bible-centered church. Our ministry focuses upon the expositional preaching and teaching of the Word of God.
We believe that prayer is essential to the effectiveness and fruitfulness of any work of God. The real victory in service for Christ is won beforehand by prayer.
Evangelism and World Missions
We believe that God wants us to spread the gospel as widely and fruitfully as we can in order to reach lost people for Christ in Hawaii and the world. We are currently committed to training church planters in Southeast Asia.
We believe that every follower of Jesus Christ should be committed to a lifestyle of consistent spiritual growth. The small group is the primary structure for discipleship in our church. In small groups believers can be accountable to one another and mature in their faith through Bible study, prayer and encouragement.
Loving God and Loving One Another
We believe God wants us to be a loving, unified community of people who are concerned for the needs of others. Loving God is the first priority. A genuine love for God results in genuine love and caring relationships for others in His family. This love for one another demonstrates the unity of the Spirit and enables us to manifest Christ’s love to a lost world.
Every Member a Minister
We believe that every believer is created for ministry, gifted by God for ministry, authorized for ministry, and needed for ministry. Therefore every member should be committed to the discovery, development and deployment of their spiritual gifts.
For the church to be strong it must be made up of strong family unit. Therefore we believe in equipping God’s people to live effectively in Christian families. Our children’s and youth ministries are designed to augment, not compete with, parental responsibilities.
We believe in identifying and training leaders in all aspects of our ministry who know and live God’s truth and are disciple-makers, committed to equipping others for service in the Body of Christ.
We envision a healthy congregation of believers whose personal relationship with God results in a spiritual vitality that is characterized by daily obedience, humble dependence, joyful unity and a servant’s heart.
We envision a church committed to ministering to the needs of our community in order that families and individuals can find love, acceptance, help, hope, forgiveness, guidance and encouragement.
We envision a church that places a high priority on introducing people to the Lord Jesus Christ both here in our community and around the world. We desire to impact our world as a sending church in both short-term and long-term missions.
We envision a church with a well-defined path to spiritual maturity, where there are opportunities for a basic as well as in-depth knowledge of God’s Word. We see small groups as being central to the care, growth and accountability of the body.
We envision a church in which every member is equipped for faithful, fruitful, and fulfilling service through the discovery and deployment of the gifts and talents God has given them.
We envision a church characterized by vibrant worship that exalts the Lord Jesus Christ and engages the heart, mind and emotions of people with God.
We are thankful that after many years of prayer and planning and sacrificial giving God has given us a facility that enables us to carry on multiple ministries throughout the week and that adds value to our community. Our plans for this coming year are to begin a Christian Pre-school as a means of ministering to families in our community.
We envision a church in which every part of our ministry is filled with people who know and live God’s truth and have become disciple-makers who are equipping others for service in the Body of Christ. We have an enthusiastic team of Ministry Team Leaders who have been equipped to carry out the various aspects of a comprehensive ministry of the Gospel.
