What does the church believe?

The Triune Nature of God

God always has been and always will be. He created life and sustains life. He has no equal. He exists in 3 distinct and equal persons: the Father, the Son, and the Spirit.

The Bible

The Bible is the inspired Word of God, relevant for daily living, and the final authority on all matters of faith.

Salvation

The blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, salvation occurs when people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as su icient payment for their sin.

Priesthood of the Believer

Each individual follower of Christ can go directly to God without the aid of any intermediary, and can, and should, read and interpret the Bible for him/herself without religious o icials dictating what to believe.

Baptism

Biblical baptism is:
– by immersion
– for the believer
-symbolic of the death and resurrection on the believer shares with Christ
– an act of obedience
– an act of worship

Lord’s Supper/Communion

This ordinance of the church is:
– for the believer
– symbolic
– an act of obedience – an act of worship

Autonomy of the Local Church

University Avenue Baptist Church is an autonomous body of Christ followers, operating through democratic processes under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, and is voluntarily affiliated with Hawaii Pacific Baptist Convention (HPBC) and numerous other partner institutions at the national and global level.
 
MINISTRIES

FAMILY MINISTRY

 
LEARNING TOGETHER
UABC is a multi-generational church on purpose! There is so much we can learn from one another, as we grow together. One of the ways we practice learning together is through our Wednesday evening short-term gatherings. Learn more about our latest multi-generational learning experience.
 
MINISTRY TO CHILDREN
Kids are a valued part of our church family! We believe the church is a place where kids are always welcome and can lead. As a multi-generational congregation, children are provided many opportunities to learn and serve alongside different age groups during the worship service, weekday ministry opportunities, and special events.
 
We take your child’s safety very seriously. Before serving any child, children’s ministry volunteers must pass a criminal background check. Each kids’ group is led by at minimum of 2 adults at all times.
 
The kids’ ministry team is a trained group of adults who are passionate about the spiritual formation of children. UABC kids are encouraged to be curious about God’s Story as they engage in hands-on missions education classes, Bible study groups, weekday small groups, multi-generational learning labs, and special events.
