History of Ranui Baptist Church

1966 – 2020


Ranui Baptist Fellowship

Early Beginnings

Seven families came from Henderson Baptist to plant a work in Ranui.

  • John and Elsie Ball
  • Don and Melita Roke
  • Graham and Joan Carter
  • Norman and Goldia Parker
  • Ernie and Connie Andrews
  • Doug and Joy Hall
  • Graeme and Mary Cremer

Their initial vision was to reach children for Jesus. There are now thousands of people all over New Zealand and aboard, loving Jesus and building the kingdom because of this church.
