MOKUAIKAUA CHURCH

The Mokuaikaua church is the oldest Hawaiian church that is still standing today. It was the first christian church built after the Hawaiians embraced christianity. It was built out of Ohia wood and stone. Henry Opukahaia was instrumental in getting the missionaries to come to Hawaii. Recently the members of the church were successful in bringing the body of Henry Opukahaia back to Hawaii for burial.
