Bringing Christians together to strengthen the church of Aotearoa New Zealand

New Zealand Christian Network is made up of hundreds of congregations and thousands of followers of Christ who live in this land, united by our common tenents of faith

Ka mahi tahi, ka ora

From united work comes fulfillment

What is the

New Zealand Christian Network?

 

We are a network of Christian churches, organisations, and individuals, established in 2002 (but with a whakapapa that goes way back before that, to the World Evangelical Alliance (1846 –), the  Evangelical Alliance (NZ), the Evangelical Fellowship of NZ, and Vision NZ) to help the church in New Zealand be more united and effective, and to present a reasoned, well-researched Christian voice on public issues to media and government.

Our mission is helping Christians work together, build the Church, and positively influence society.

Our board of reference includes national leaders from all the main denominations.

We are committed to orthodox Christian faith, uphold a evangelical Statement of Faith, and are affiliated with the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA). There are at least 500,000 biblically orthodox/evangelical Christians in New Zealand.

In response to Jesus’ prayer ‘may they be one that the world will know’ (John 17), we long to see greater unity in the Church, and for Christ influence to flourish in Aotearoa New Zealand.

We network, develop relationships, identify issues where the Church can be more effective by working together, and help provide leadership for change. We facilitate conversations, run focus groups and forums, hold national congresses, and represent a biblical position in such contexts as inter-faith consultations. We communicate to the church, issue media statements, speak on media, and make submissions to parliamentary select committees.
