About New Zealand Christian Network

  1. Who we are

    We are a network of Christian churches, organisations, and individuals, established to help the church in New Zealand be more united and effective, and to present a reasoned Christian voice on public issues to media and government.

    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.

  2. Vision, Mission, and Kupu

    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.

    MISSION - Helping Christians work together, build the Church, and positively influence society.

    We do this by … developing relationships, identifying critical issues where the Church can be more effective by working together and providing leadership for change. We seek to promote the unity of the Church and reflect publicly the commonly held views by the 500,000 biblically orthodox or evangelical Christians in New Zealand.

    KUPU - Ka mahi tahi, ka ora (From united work comes fulfilment)

Christchurch 15-03-19

The New Zealand Christian Network has expressed horror and great sadness about the violent attacks today on Muslim people and mosques in Christchurch.

A spokesperson for the network, Dr Stuart Lange, said the attacks are “utterly appalling” and will be deplored by all New Zealand people of all faiths or none.

The network urges people to pray for all the families and communities which will be deeply affected and to offer them support in every way possible.
