Welcome and thank you for visiting Grace Church Kailua online. We are currently joining others to prepare and plan to reach Kailua with the gospel. Won't you pray about being a part? We would love to greet you and share with you our love for Jesus Christ and for you, our neighbor.
We believe that our purpose is to love and worship God, love and witness to others and make disciples who make more disciples, as the Bible commands in Matthew 28:18-20. Our mission is to be fully devoted to Jesus by sharing the truth in love and growing together in following Him. We show God’s love and concern for our fellow man at every opportunity. We love Kailua and are committed to reaching out in grace and peace for the sake of knowing the Lord Jesus Christ.
