ABOUT US

Nestled in upper Wahiawa, just below Leilehua High School, our church is a multi-generational mix of keiki and kupuna, locals and those new to Hawaii. We especially welcome military families!

OUR VISION

God is calling Wahiawa United Methodist Church to make disciples of Christ through mission and service to others. Our purpose is to nurture our community, meet its needs, and to be welcoming to all.

OUR BELIEFS

We believe that God’s love and grace are available to all people. Through Jesus Christ, we experience God’s healing and transformation. The Bible is the authority of our faith, which we interpret with the help of reason, tradition, and experience. We live out our faith in community and service to others.
