Know God

He Wants to Be a Part of Your Life

You've said "Yes!" Now what?

Let us know! We'd love to walk with you in your new life in Christ.

Our first step of faith is knowing God. We believe that through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, anyone can know God personally. We share the incredible news of Jesus' love in lots of ways at New Hope Hawaii Kai, and we want to help everyone grow in their faith.

Through attending Sunday Services, doing daily devotions, joining a Life Group or attending a Starting Point class, you can experience knowing God in a way that truly changes you. 

Sunday Service

Regularly attending and inviting others to our weekly Sunday services is a vital part of God's mission for your life. Our services are designed to inspire and equip you for God's plan for your life.

Sundays Online at 8am & 10am

Due to the COVID pandemic we are meeting exclusively online but when we are able to gather again we'll be here:

Kaiser High School Cafeteria

511 Lunalilo Home Rd, Honolulu, HI 96825

Starting Point

Our Starting Point class walks the new believer through the basics of life in Christ.

  • How to study the Bible
  • Water baptism
  • How to share your faith in Christ with others

Contact Pastor Carl Higashi for more information.

Water Baptism

Water Baptism is a public declaration of our identification with Jesus affirming His death, burial and resurrection. By being water baptized you are publicly saying that you have made the life-changing decision to follow Jesus Christ.

Water Baptism is offered three times a year at Maunalua Bay. Your church family and friends witness and celebrate with those who are baptized, followed by fellowship and a potluck. It's truly a joyous time!

Why Baptism? Pastor Wayne Cordeiro shares his thoughts on this important step.


As we read God's words, we begin to see how God responds to things. Doing daily devotions re-patterns the way we think and transforms the spirit of the mind. Then, when we face similar situations as Jesus did, we begin to respond in the same way.

Journaling is an excellent way to both record and process what God has spoken to us. It's also a useful tool to use at a later time to reflect on and review some of the "gems" that you have received. Without writing these down, you may forget those blessings and some very important lessons! While journaling is a very personal time with the Lord, you may want to share some of your daily devotions with your small group or mentors. Through discussion, you may be able to look deeper into what God is speaking to you, gain new insights and even encourage others.

We encourage you to journal using the SOAP method.

S for Scripture

Open your Bible to the reading found under today's date of your Bible bookmark, or find it online here. Take time reading and allow God to speak to you. When you are done, look for a verse that particularly spoke to you that day, and write it in your journal.

O for Observation

What do you think God is saying to you in this scripture? Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you and reveal Jesus to you. Paraphrase and write this Scripture down in your own words in your journal.

A for Application

Personalize what you have read, by asking yourself how it applies to your life right now. Perhaps it is instruction, encouragement, revelation of a new promise, or corrections for a particular area of your life. Write how this Scripture can apply to you today.

P for Prayer

This can be as simple as asking God to help you use this Scripture, or it may be a greater insight on what He may be revealing to you. Remember, prayer is a two-way conversation, so be sure to listen to what God has to say! Now, write it out.
