Welcome to the Community Church of Honolulu

Community Church of Honolulu (CCH) was established in 1934 by college and high school children of first-generation Chinese immigrants, with the intent of being a congregation-based, inclusive community of faith that would reflect Hawai‘i's diversity.

We celebrate God's presence in our lives through inter-generational Sunday worship at 9 a.m., followed by fellowship and Christian Education opportunities. We seek to serve the wider community in Christ's love and humility. We invite you to join us in a community of faith, sharing the love of Jesus Christ with each other and all people.

Community Church of Honolulu is a member of the United Church of Christ, whose congregational ancestors brought Christianity to Hawai‘i in the early 1800's.

The purpose of this website is to invite you to come to know who we are as a people of faith. Please contact us if you would like to know more about Community Church of Honolulu.

We trust, if it is God's will, that you will come and enjoy a personal experience of how God is at work with CCH through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.

Pastor's Greeting

    Message from our Minister

    A friend of mine sent this list to me about what Christians should be named for. As we face the start of a new year I think it is good fodder for our thoughts. There are many who tell us what we shouldn’t be focused on, this is a refreshing call to what we should be focused on.

    Things Christians Should Be Known For by Jarrid Wilson:

    Although there are plenty of things God has called us to turn our backs to, here are eight things we should be known for.

    It seems that today’s Christians are more known by what they are against than for. And although there are plenty of things God has called us to turn our backs to, I strongly believe our holy anthem should be chorused by what we are for.

    1. Love (1 John 4:8)

    Love is the intrinsic value for any who call themselves Christ followers. In reality, I don’t believe that any can truly call themselves Christians and not showcase the act of love. No matter the circumstance, offering a helping hand of God’s extravagant love is what sets us apart from the rest of the world. God loves us, even when we don’t reflect the same image in return. We owe it to others to offer them this same reality. 

    2. Grace (Ephesians 4:32)

    The Grace of God has covered a multitude of sins, and the act of Love made on the cross has paved the way for us to know and experience God’s love. We are surely blessed. Although we don’t deserve the grace we have been generously handed, Jesus continues to extend a helping hand of grace regardless of our situation. In the same way, we as Christians should be known for the grace and forgiveness that we show and offer others. It in most       circumstances will not be deserved, but we must always remember that neither was ours.

    3. Purity (Philippians 4:8)

    When Christians discuss the word “purity,” one must understand that we are implying more than just the topic of sex. Not only should we be known for our pureness in relationships, but in our speech, actions and motives, as well.

    4. Patience (Galatians 5:22)

    In today’s fast-paced, drive-thru, entrepreneurial world, patience is key. And while the rest of the world may like quick-fixes and turnkey circumstances, the Word of God has called us to be patient amidst all things. This may not always be the easiest task, but it will always be the right path to choose.

    5. Sacrifice (John 3:16)

    The sacrifice made on the cross showcases the immeasurable amount of sacrifice that God presented toward his people. And while we will never be able to match the magnificent sacrifice that took place almost 2,000 years ago, this isn’t to say we must not continue the legacy set before us. Christians should be known for their selflessness and sacrifice. A quality that will reflect an image of our God in heaven.

    6. Selflessness (Philippians 2:4)

    Do you give only to hopefully receive, or do you give out of the abundance of your heart? The idea of selfless-ness presents a picture that says, “Whatever you need, I’m here to give it to you.” Selflessness is an attribute that puts others before our self, and God before every-one else. Although it may not always be the easiest of tasks, showcasing selflessness says more about your heart than you might think. Everything we have was never really ours to begin with.

    7. Commitment (Matthew 5:37)

    When we as Christians say we will do something, we should make sure we follow through with the act. Although we all make mistakes and fall short, reflecting an image of Jesus’ commitment to others showcases one of His greatest attributes. In the ways of Christ, we must show the world we can be trusted, and that our word will not be broken.

    8. Respect (1 Peter 2:17)

    We may come across people with differing views than us, but this doesn’t mean we can’t be respectful in our action of disagreement. Today’s media coverage feeds off of disrespectful Christians, highlighting stories that provoke many of us to stand back and say, “I would never do that!” We must instead be known as a community of respectful people, who even in disagreement can show love and grace.

    We all, in most cases have been taught these truths by those who have gone before us. May this list be a good reminder of what we should be about, not only as we start this year but throughout every season of our life.

    Focusing on what we should be
