About New Zealand Christian Network

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text][accordions type=”toggle” handle=”arrows” space=”no” ]
[accordion title=”Who we are” state=”close” ]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.[/accordion]
[accordion title=”Vision, Mission, and Kupu” state=”close” ]

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)

Abortion Legislation Bill

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

We acknowledge this is a painful issue

For many people, abortion is a very painful and divisive issue. Convictions and feelings run deep. Many find abortion tragic. Others, finding themselves unexpectedly pregnant, have been thrown into a life crisis. In anguish and fear, they have agonised over whether or not to seek an abortion, and have had to live with that decision ever since. Some grieve for family members who were never born. Many people alive today are aware that they could have been aborted, but are pleased they were not.  We acknowledge that all those who proceed with unwelcome pregnancies need strong support from others, and those who have undergone an abortion need compassionate understanding.   READ MORE…[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”42650″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” border_color=”mulled_wine” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”https://www.chooselife.org.nz/lovethemboth/”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SDQWSB9lHs0″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_btn title=”Read NZCN’s submission on the Abortion Legislation Bill” shape=”round” color=”mulled-wine” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fnzchristiannetwork.org.nz%2Fnzcn-is-opposed-to-the-abortion-legislation-bill||target:%20_blank|”][vc_btn title=”Guide to making a submission on the Abortion Legislation Bill” style=”outline-custom” outline_custom_color=”#50485b” outline_custom_hover_background=”#50485b” outline_custom_hover_text=”#ffffff” shape=”round” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fnzchristiannetwork.org.nz%2Fa-guide-to-making-submissions-on-the-abortion-legislation-bill%2F|||”][vc_btn title=”Parliament’s page on the Bill” style=”outline-custom” outline_custom_color=”#50485b” outline_custom_hover_background=”#50485b” outline_custom_hover_text=”#ffffff” shape=”round” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.parliament.nz%2Fen%2Fpb%2Fsc%2Fmake-a-submission%2Fdocument%2F52SCAL_SCF_BILL_89814%2Fabortion-legislation-bill||target:%20_blank|”][vc_column_text]

THE BLESSING AOTEAROA

[divide]

It has been a privilege and joy to be involved in The Blessing Aotearoa and anticipate that many people receive it with the heart that it is given in. Many reports have been heard of the effect the combined voices of the body of Christ in Aotearoa New Zealand has had in touching the hearts those who hear it. A clear demonstration of what happens when we work together and declare God’s word into the world we live in.
