Habakkuk 2:3 “For the Vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it;
Because it will surely come. It will not tarry.”
We started this Venture of Faith on December 28, 2007 when we (CCCO) purchased our Mauka Property from Castle and Cooke for $1.3 million.
Due to God’s Grace and the generosity of This Body of Believers, we now owe $46,100 as of this weekend! We are that close to paying off our Land Note and to be full owners of our 2.35 acres of Church Land in Mililani Mauka!
We hope to payoff, by God’s Grace, the balance by the end of 2015. At this point, we will be able to begin the Construction Phase Part One of our new facility.
We are Fulfilling the Vision – Part 1 that God has given to us in establishing our Fellowship in our Community. Thank You for your Faithfulness to the Lord.

It Is Time
To Celebrate 25 years of Jesus’ Faithfulness to CCCO!
Calvary Chapel Central Oahu,
19 Therefore you are no longer outsiders (exiles, migrants, and aliens, excluded from the rights of citizens), but you now share citizenship with the saints (God’s own people, consecrated and set apart for Himself); and you belong to God’s [own] household.
20 You are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets with Christ Jesus Himself the chief Cornerstone.
21 In Him the whole structure is joined (bound, welded) together harmoniously, and it continues to rise (grow, increase) into a holy temple in the Lord [a sanctuary dedicated, consecrated, and sacred to the presence of the Lord].
22 In Him [and in fellowship with one another] you yourselves also are being built up [into this structure] with the rest, to form a fixed abode (dwelling place) of God in (by, through) the Spirit. Eph 2:19-22 Amplified Bible (AMP)
We have $139,000 remaining to pay off our Mauka Church Property. We bought our 2.35 acres of property, 7.5 years ago for $1.3 million. As you see, we are almost there! We, the Elders of CCCO, have chosen to take a Special Offering on our 25th Anniversary Celebration of our church, Saturday July 18, 2015, 5pm to 8pm on our property. Our hope is to pay off our land bill and get ready to build Phase 1 on our property and be able to move in soon after!
After over 25 years here in Mililani, it is time to establish a meeting place for us in our community. A Habitation for God in (by, through) the Spirit. We are building a Lighthouse for our community, to raise up a strong presence of Jesus and His People. We share a destiny as one of His Churches here in Central Oahu. “JESUS IS ALIVE” AND JESUS CHANGES HEARTS, CHANGES LIFESTYLES, AND CHANGES THE DESTINY FOR ALL WHO BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST. We are involved in a great work of God! We want what He wants! “AND IT IS TIME TO BUILD!” Catch and Execute the Vision!
As your Pastor, I ask you to seek God for how much you are being led to contribute to this Special Offering (remember “Spirit Controlled Grace Giving”
2 Corinthians 9:
6 But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
7 So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. on Saturday July 18th. Now is the time because the time is ticking away in our contract of sale for this property with Castle and Cooke. We must get going to be completed and moved in by December 2017 our sooner.
18 And I told them of the hand of my God which had been good upon me, and also of the king’s words that he had spoken to me.
So they said, “Let us rise up and build.” Then they set their hands to this good work.
For the Lamb of God and His saints, Pastor Rick and the Elders of CCCO.
