Bringing Christians together to strengthen the church of Aotearoa

The church of New Zealand is made up of the hundreds of congregations and thousands of followers of Christ who live here. And although we hold different views across many topics, we are defined by foundational tenets of faith that unite us.

From united work comes fulfillment

The Blessing | Aotearoa/New Zealand

One song became an anthem to the world as we entered into a global pandemic. The Blessing, sung by virtual choirs and pieced together from a myriad of home recordings and made in isolation.

New Zealand’s offering, recorded as we came out of our first national full lockdown in May 2020, was released as the city of Auckland entered a regional lockdown in August. This project was completed by people working remotely with others they had never physically met and yet, it stands as a remarkable demonstration of what happens when we work together as believers in Christ, put our trust in Him, and declare His blessing to an isolated and hurting world.

Jesus’ prayer is ‘that they may be perfected and completed into one, so that the world may know [without any doubt] that You sent Me, and [that You] have loved them, just as You have loved Me.’ John 17:23 (Amplified). Our vision is to see unity in the Church and God’s kingdom come in Aotearoa New Zealand.

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.

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.
