|Lanakila Baptist Church is located in the town of Waipahu on the Island of O’ahu. In Hawaiian Waipahu means to
"burst or gush forth" It is believed that its close location to Pearl
Harbor influence it's name.
Oahu is home to
Honolulu, Pearl Harbor,
and many military bases. O'ahu is
nicknamed “The Gathering Place”. Our unique culture is influenced by the diverse
background of it’s residence.
People do not have to be in the Islands
long before they hear terms like Mauka
(Mau-kah), Makai (ma-kigh). Directional terms such as Mauka
(heading toward the mountain), Makai (heading toward the ocean), Windward
(eastern side of the Island), Leeward (western side) are used commonly in Hawaii.
We are blessed at Lanakila to be able to minister to the wonderful people that
call Hawaii home as well as those who are looking for a home away from home.
