About Us

Over 45 years ago God lead a man named Robert Knutson to come to the Island of Oahu a start a ministry in the town of Waipahu.  He, along with the early members chose the name "Lanakila" for the church.  Lanakila means "victory" in the Hawaiian language.  What a perfect name.  Christ came to earth, died on a cross and rose from the grave. Whosoever will call upon him will be saved and is victorious over the penalty of sin.
