NZCN Statement of Faith

We believe in the historic Christian faith, including

  1. One true and living God, who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
  2. God’s love for the universe he created, and especially for human beings, who are made in God’s own image
  3. The brokenness in humanity and the world caused by human sinfulness, and our need forgiveness and reconciliation with God.
  4. Jesus Christ is God’s only Son, fully human and fully divine, without sin, who reveals God, died on the cross to atone for our sins, rose from the dead, and is forever Lord and the Saviour of the world.
  5. Salvation by God’s grace, through faith in Christ.
  6. The Holy Spirit who gives new life, indwells believers, changes us to be more like Christ, and empowers us to serve.
  7. The divine inspiration of the Bible and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and life.
  8. One holy universal church, the Body of Christ, to which all true believers belong.
  9. The mission of the Church to share the Good News of Christ through word and deed.
  10. Christ’s future return in glory, to judge the living and the dead, to establish a new heaven and earth, and that those who belong to Christ will live with him forever.
