About Us

The Baptist movement is a network of over 240 local churches - the Baptist Churches of New Zealand - who share common beliefs and practices. 

At the heart of Baptist movement life is worship and the honouring of God through evangelical mission. Baptists believe the Good News about Jesus Christ and that His death and resurrection is a message which needs to be heard. They have accepted the biblical mandate to speak out this message in both word and deed.

The nature of Baptist church structure means the Baptist churches spread throughout New Zealand are free to determine the best way to fulfil this mission within their unique communities. This has resulted in a network of mutually supportive churches overseeing a significant number of ministries and social initiatives throughout our country. These include a wide range of programmes that impact the lives of every age, ethnicity, and social grouping in New Zealand.
