About Us

Waialua United Church of Christ

We are a community

At WUCC, you will find an inter-generational community from all walks of life, with a little something for everyone. The hospitality is warm, and the people are friendly. We believe building community is far more important that religiosity. Come be challenged and refreshed, and find a place where YOU can make a difference in the world. You'll be glad you did.

What we believe

We covenant with God and with each other, binding ourselves together to encourage each other to follow Jesus Christ in love and faith wherever He chooses to lead us, in accordance with the Holy Scriptures, and through the enabling power of the Holy Spirit.

We believe in God, the Eternal Spirit, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ and our Father, and to his deeds we testify:

He calls the worlds into being, creates man in his own image and sets before him the ways of life and death.

He seeks in holy love to save all people from aimlessness and sin.

He judges men and nations by his righteous will declared through prophets and apostles.

In Jesus Christ, the man of Nazareth, our crucified and risen Lord, he has come to us and shared our common lot, conquering sin and death and reconciling the world to himself.

He bestows upon us his Holy Spirit, creating and renewing the church of Jesus Christ, binding in covenant faithful people of all ages, tongues, and races.

He calls us into his church to accept the cost and joy of discipleship, to be his servants in the service of men, to proclaim the gospel to all the world and resist the powers of evil, to share in Christ’s baptism and eat at his table , to join him in his passion and victory.

He promises to all who trust him forgiveness of sins and fullness of grace, courage in the struggle for justice and peace, his presence in trial and rejoicing, and eternal life in his kingdom which has no end.

Blessing and honor, glory and power be unto him.

Our membership

All church members are ministers.

On April 15, 2024, on recommendation of the Pastoral Search Committee and with much prayer and worship, the congregation called on the Rev.  Earl Joven “E.J” Ravago to serve as the settled Pastor of the Waialua United Church of Christ.  His three-year term as pastor of our church will start in late summer 2024.

A graduate of North Park Theological Seminary and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Pastor EJ currently serves as the lead pastor of New Abbey Church in Waukegan, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, which he planted in 2016.  He is married and has three children, for whom we are excited to join our congregation!
