Who We Are
At St. James’ we have learned that who we are as Christians in the world is shaped by our experience of worship. We believe that the experience of prayer and communion within the Church helps transform us into the people God is calling us to be.
Like a beautiful Hawaiian quilt, we are a colorful tapestry of faith, weaving together believers and seekers; those who where born and raised in Hawai’i and those of us who found ourselves drawn to the islands. We come from different backgrounds and cultures, gathering around one table. We believe this to be an important witness of the Kingdom of God on earth. We are ‘ohana. We hold to the fullness of the Christian faith as we have received it, but we seek to practice the openness that Jesus displayed in his own life. He rejected judgmental religion and believed everyone had a right to a relationship with God. He welcomed everyone. So do we.
