WHERE WE MEET
We meet in a comfortable, air-conditioned space on the second floor (via elevator). Parking is in the lot behind the building; street parking is also available.
There isn't a dress code for members or guests, but most wear traditional “Sunday” dress. Aloha attire is always appropriate (suit and tie not required).
You will be among a friendly, multi-racial congregation.
Our traditional services have congregational singing from hymnals and frequently a special song from our music ministry. All services and classes are in English.
For children three and under, a comfortable nursery is available for all services. For Sunday School, children four and up enjoy Bible classes. During worship services, children junior-age and up join their families to worship the Lord together.
The church is supported by the tithes and offerings of its members. Guests are welcome to contribute, but are not obligated to do so.
We look forward to meeting you at one of our services!
Pastor & Mrs. Kam Ching
Pastor Kam was born in Hong Kong and raised in Kaneohe, Hawaii. As a high school senior, when he looked at the stars in the night sky, he wondered if it all was by accident, evolution or by a “God.” He was also afraid of what would happen if he died unexpectedly in his sleep. Driven to know, yet ignorant of how to find God, he visited the many Asian religions in Hawaii and talked with Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons. But nothing gave him peace or assurance of Heaven.
One day, a man named Max knocked on his door. Pastor Kam thought this man was a Jehovah’s Witness or a Mormon, and was surprised to learn he was an Independent Baptist missionary from Tennessee. Max invited him to the church he had just started. Pastor Kam eventually visited his church for several services, and in June of 1970, he accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his Savior. He finally had peace and assurance of eternal life!
After attending Bible college in Tennessee, Pastor Kam returned to his home church and became active in every ministry available. This was where he met his wife, Miranda. They were married in June of 1977. In the late fall of 1987, Pastor Kam, Miranda and their two small children started Independent Baptist Church in Honolulu.
They are the grateful and proud grandparents of eight grandchildren.
