Pastor Jeff White
In 1992 the Lord led my wife Cheri and I to teach at Ma'ili Bible School and serve in different areas of Ma'ili Bible Church. We had the opportunity to work with the teens and were involved in summer camps (now Camp Kupono)
In 1999 we left Hawai'i and began full time deputation in the fall of 2000 to minister in Fiji among the Indian population. The Lord allowed us to serve in Fiji from 2002-2012.
We returned to Ma'ili in the fall 2013 to again teach at Ma'ili Bible School. In June of 2014 I became the pastor of Ma'ili Bible Church.
It is our desire to see the people in our church built up in their faith and service the Lord by reaching out to our community in the Wai'anae Coast.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of sins. (Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-10; John 1:12; 1 Peter 1:18,19).
We believe in the one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory and having the same attributes and perfections (Deuteronomy 6:4; 2 Corinthians 13:14). God is a spirit, from everlasting to everlasting the same, creator of all things, omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. (John 4:24; Luke 24:39; Psalm 90:2; James 1:17; Isaiah 44:24; Revelation 19:6; 1 John 3:20; Psalm 147:5; 139:7-10).
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful man (John 1:1-2, 14; Luke 1:25). The Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross as a representative, vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice; and that our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead (Romans 3:24, 25; 1 Peter 2:24; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Peter 1:3-5). The Lord Jesus Christ ascended to heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God, where as our High Priest. He fulfills the ministry of Representative, Intercessor, and Advocate (Acts 1:9; Hebrews 9:24, 7:25; Romans 8:34; 1 John 2:1-2).
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person who convicts the world of sin righteousness, and judgment, and that He is the Supernatural Agent in regeneration. baptizing all believers into the body of Chirst, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption (John 16:8-11; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Romans 8:9; Ephesians 1:13-14). He is the Divine Teacher who guides believers into all the truth; and that it is the privilege and duty of all the saved to be filled with the Spirit. (John 16:13; 1 John 2:20, 27; Ephesians 5:18)
We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be the verbally, inspired Word of God, the final authority for faith and life, inerrant in the original writings, infallible and God-breathed. We believe in the literal, grammatical, and dispensational view of Bible interpretation. (2 Timothy 3:16, 17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Matthew 5:18; John 16:12-13)
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but in Adam's sin the race fell inherited a sinful nature and became alienated from God; and that man is totally depraved, and of himself, totally unable to remedy his lost condition. (Genesis 1:26, 27; Romans 3:22, 23; 5:15; Ephesians 2:1-3, 12)
We believe that the Church which is the body and espoused bride of Christ, is a spiritual organism made up of all born-again persons of this present age (Ephesians 1:22-23; 5:25-27; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; 2 Corinthians 11:2). The establishment and continuance of local churches are clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures. (Acts 14:27; 20:17, 28-32; 1 Timothy 3:1-13; Titus 1:5-11).
