I’m New

Kia ora and welcome Brothers and Sisters

Ranui Baptist Church was founded in 1967. The Church has seen a number of changes both large and small over the years. Since its founding the Church has been involved in the community in many different ways. We have a passion to see the lost saved and then for them to grow in maturity as believers in Jesus Christ and impact their neighbors, the community and the world. If you would like to join us in this mission come and see us.

Our 10 am Sunday service is family orientated and the 6 pm service varies and covers different tastes. The Church office is open from 8.30am am to 12.30pm week days.  We have a number of different groups operating out of the Church each week. Please take a look at our Activities and Groups page to see if there is something your passionate about and join us.

Mission Statement

To be a church family of servants, meeting in multiple services; where everyone of every generation and culture is involved in ministry. Where people are lead to Christ and discipled through genuine, faith building friendships. A church where new believers are quickly set free, healed and released in to their God given ministries. To be a church that is known for His power and His practical love. A church that knows the urgency of the hour.

COMMUNITY OF FAITH

We believe that over the next five years we will become a real Christian community, where everyone, every age, feels they belong. Where people are ‘alive in Christ’ set free and serving. Where we each see our role in the family not as consumers but as servants, young and old each serving according to their spiritual gifts and passions.

A Church where spiritual and practical needs are met continually. Where the love in the church family and the empowerment of the Holy Spirit means that we are all naturally living contagious Christian lives (constantly seeing people come to a saving faith primarily through personal friendship evangelism). We expect a multiplication of multicultural congregations.

KEEPING OUR VALUED UNITY

We invite you to test everything taught in this church not against your opinion, experience or tradition but against the Bible.
The attitude we should all have is to serve and not be served. To become such a loving humble people that we will not take offence.
When concerned for a brother or sister in this church we should only go to them if our desire is to help and bless them. We should never share our concerns about someone in the church unless it is to take that person with us to lovingly help the person being discussed who is struggling.
Never criticize our leaders. Instead when concerns arise go to them humbly or/and pray for them.
We have a fantastic church family here! We value our relationships with each other and God.

God’s family is special. We’d love you to join us here.

Beliefs and Values

  • Jesus Christ is the Head of His Church. He is the One we serve and live for, and for that reason we gather in His name.
  • Jesus Christ is the Saviour of the world. He came from Heaven to earth through a supernatural virgin birth, so He was born pure and sinless. He is the Righteous and Holy One, who could therefore carry our sins to the cross. Jesus bled and died for all, so that whoever believes can be saved.
  • Jesus Christ is the Baptizer with the Holy Spirit. He wants to fill you with His presence and power.
  • Jesus Christ is the Living Word who has given us His written Word, the Bible. As Christians we live under a new covenant, the gospel of God’s grace.
  • Jesus Christ is the foundation of Ranui Baptist Church. He is the rock upon which we stand. We declare that “Jesus is Lord!” To be a part of the church you must also declare with your mouth that “Jesus is Lord” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead.
  • Jesus Christ is the soon returning King, and He has commanded us to preach the gospel in order to prepare the world for that great Day.
  • Jesus Christ is returning for His Bride, that is, those who are being conformed to His image. We therefore need the fruit of the Holy Spirit, which is love, joy, peace, forbearance (patience), kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
  • Jesus Christ is both a friend of sinners and a judge of sinners, a Lion and a Lamb. He loves all people and doesn’t want anyone to perish. Therefore He calls all people to repent of their sins and to believe the gospel. Repentance from sin and faith in Jesus are needed for salvation.
  • Jesus Christ is to be followed and obeyed. He is worthy of praise. We lift His name up high so that all people are drawn to Him.
  • Jesus Christ is God; God the Son, the second person of the Holy Trinity.

Time is short. Christ’s return is imminent.
The hour to act is now.
