Our Church

Welcome to the Hilo International Christian Church

A Member of the Sold Out Discipling Movement

We are a non-denominational Bible based international Christian Church that embraces Jesus’ dream to evangelize the nations in our generation (Matthew 28:18-20, Colossians 1:6). We aim to lead the way in laying down our lives for each other and emphasize the need for every disciple to be a committed servant in the body of Christ (1 John 3:16, Mark 10:43-45). By reaching out within our community and sharing our faith, our hope is that through us, God will make disciples of all the islands and nations living around us and bring them into a loving, serving and maturing body of Christ (Ephesians 4:11-16). The scriptures paint a clear, beautiful picture of the ohana that God’s people are called to be (Acts 2:42-47, Galatians 3:26-28). As such, our diverse congregation is made up of families, married couples, single professionals, campus students, children, and teenagers from all age groups and many parts of the world. With community projects and focused campaigns that help youth, less fortunate, divorce victims, substance abusers, single mothers and the homeless we are striving to live lives worthy of our calling (Ephesians 4:1). We see ourselves as “nobodies” telling “everybody” about “somebody” who can save “anybody.” Our values are based on love and respect for God’s word and all walks of life. We are a zealous congregation, but we also have lots of fun! Simply stated, our purpose is to love God with all of our heart, all of our mind, all of our soul, and all of our strength and to love people (Matthew 22:37-40, John 13:34-35). Excitingly in the past 10 years, the Spirit has multiplied our worldwide family of churches into over 5,000 disciples, in 76 churches, in 31 nations on all six populated continents of the world! Clearly this is not a movement of men, but the very movement of God! To God be all the glory!

We look forward to meeting you!
