The Gathering 2014 logo

Welcome to the 2014 Baptist Assembly!

What a unique privilege our generation has been given with the opportunity to celebrate 200 years of the Gospel in Aotearoa New Zealand. This year we call you to Waitangi, the birth place of our nation. During our time together at the 2014 Gathering, we will remember the stories and sacrifices of those who have travelled to and around our lands sharing the hope of Jesus Christ. 

Our Gathering theme this year is "Te Karanga ki Tua" - The Call to the Future. Two hundred years since Rev. Samuel Marsden preached that first gospel message on Christmas Day we have the chance to recapture the evangelistic zeal and pioneering spirit that brought the Good News to Oihi Bay.

Our prayer is that you'll bring friends, family and members of your congregation to this very special Gathering. We're really excited about what God will reveal to us and inspire us with as we look towards another 200 years of the Gospel in Aotearoa New Zealand.

— Craig Vernall (National Leader) and Rachel Murray (NZBMS acting General Director)
