Our Story

How it all started...

When Mildred Johnson Brostek began preaching the gospel in Hawaii in 1937, her Pentecostal brand of Christianity and the very idea of a female minister were rare in the islands.

The Georgia native, a graduate of Holmes Bible College, shared her scriptural message in outdoor revival meetings in downtown Honolulu and opened the first Pentecostal Holiness mission here in 1937, a forerunner of the nondenominational fundamentalist Christian churches that are popular today. The storefront mission drew hundreds of servicemen during World War II.

Brostek was founder of the Door of Faith Church, which at one time had 24 branches in Hawaii, the mainland, the Philippines, Okinawa and New Zealand.

Pastor Mildred passed into Glory in 2005.

Today, the Door of Faith Church is located in 10 locations around the state of Hawaii, Okinawa, New York and New Zealand.
