Elder Affirmation of Faith


Elder Covenant


The pastors exist to shepherd, care for, and lead Kailua Baptist Church to be a community passionate about knowing Christ and making him known.

We believe we can do this by: modeling Christ-like behavior; teaching the whole counsel of God as summed up in the gospel; guarding the doctrinal purity of the church; faithfully stewarding the financial resources God entrusts to us to advance the mission of making disciples; ensuring the proper administration of baptism and the Lord’s Supper; caring for every member and disciplining unruly members; raising up and training future leaders to ensure the health and missional effectiveness of the church moving forward

More about Rocky...

Rocky was born in Honolulu, raised on Lanai, and moved to Maui as a fifth grader. Being that his father was a local baptist preacher, Rocky grew up in a loving Christian home. Though Rocky professed to be a Christian from childhood, it was not until he was 18 that he began to truly repent of sin and trust in the person and work of Jesus. The sin he once loved, he began to hate and the righteousness he once hated, he began to love. Jesus changed him forever.

Todd Morikawa

More about Todd...

Todd was born in Honolulu, raised in Aiea and later, in Hilo on the Big Island. He was raised in a Christian home but did not really understand the gospel until he was 15 years old, when God changed his heart through the preaching of the Gospel at a youth camp. For the first time, Todd understood the substitutionary nature of Jesus’ death, that Jesus really took his place on the cross. After that, God gave Todd new desires, including reading the Bible, praying, and fellowship with other believers. Eventually, God gave Todd the desire to pursue ministry and granted him the opportunity in 2005. Todd has a BA in Communication (UH-Hilo 2004) and an M.Div. in Biblical and Theological Studies (Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, 2008). He is married to Natalie and they have two daughters. Todd’s responsibilities at KBC include prayer and the ministry of full time preaching.
