...IT ALL BEGAN AS A BACKYARD BBQ IN HALEIWA, HAWAII.
At Surfers Church, we believe the Church is more than just where you attend a service during the week, but rather it is a community of believers sharing life together. In its early days, our "service" was simply a gathering of friends and family to eat dinner and worship Jesus together on Saturday nights after a long day of surf on North Shore. That small gathering soon grew beyond it's small backyard in Haleiwa and settled into a brick and mortar home in Wahiawa in 2012. However, our three priorities have remained the same - to share food, fellowship & the Word.
Surfers Church is called to creatively use the gospel to connect, equip and serve Wahiawa, Hawaii and the surf communities around the world. We are a place for every person - young or old, rich or poor, sick or healthy - to gather together in worship as we get to know our Father and our true identities as His sons and daughters. Our prayer each week is that God's presence and power will continue to be released in greater measures in us and through us that we might overflow into the islands and the nations!
We are a community of believers from all over the island of Oahu and every walk of life.
