In the last two editions and upcoming editions of The Pacific Connector, I am highlighting elements of the HPBC of which you may not be aware. These articles originate from questions I hear from Hawaii Pacific Baptist pastors and leaders. I pray this will help you know more about the fantastic opportunities available to you and your ministry.
While some pastors may comment about the theology of other pastors or the practices of other churches, I can assure you that Hawaii Pacific Baptist churches stand firmly upon the gospel of Jesus Christ. Your HPBC staff team and I regularly and intentionally interact with all of our churches. As a team, we also monitor our churches’ faithfulness in theology and practice. This watchfulness provides an accountable networking system among our churches to ensure biblical integrity, proper doctrinal adherence, and the overall focus on living and sharing the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Our team can assure you that we address issues that we find to provide accountability to our mutual commitment to serve Christ together. Our churches proclaim the gospel’s accuracy, preach God’s Word thoroughly, and strive to communicate salvation through Christ alone faithfully. We praise the Lord for this level of integrity.
In the next edition, we will address your church’s role and how we partner together to accomplish God’s purposes. Continue to pray and strive for ways to serve God in obedience together.
As always, your HPBC staff team is ready to provide for you in any way that we can to advance and support your ministry. If we can serve you, please call us at (808) 946-9581 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
