We uphold an orthodox biblical (evangelical) Statement of Faith, and we are the NZ member of the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA), committed to representing evangelical faith positions.
Our board of reference includes national leaders from all the main denominations.
Centred on Jesus’s prayer ‘may they be one that the world will know’ (Jn 17), our vision is to see unity in the Church and God’s kingdom come in Aotearoa New Zealand.

As part of our accelerating revamp of the work of the New Zealand Christian Network, we are delighted that this week Mark Maney joined our expanding leadership team, as a part-time staff member. Mark is passionate about the Gospel, is an exuberant presenter, and is very involved with Thinking Matters. He has pastored churches both in New Zealand and Canada, and has recently become the associate pastor at Massey Presbyterian.
Mark has joined the NZCN team as a researcher, writer, and speaker. He began his work with the very timely article about New Zealand churches moving into Level 2. This article also includes useful resources on this matter. Enjoy.
Something else to enjoy – and to be challenged by – is the short video of Pastor David Dishroon’s excellent devotional on the opening night of the resumed Pray As One NZ national prayer sessions. These prayer times are now on Zoom every Monday night, from 8.00 pm to 9.00 pm. Join us!
