About Us

What we believe

That the Bible is the inspired Word of God and our only guide for what we believe and how we live.

That Jesus Christ is truly God and truly human.

That Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty of all our sin.

That a person is saved by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone.

That membership in the Christian Church is for those who are truly born again by God’s Spirit.

That the immersion of believers as the only scriptural form of water baptism.

That the church is made up of believers, and through the church we serve Jesus, one another and those who do not know Him.

Jesus taught this by word and example.

That our mission as a church (relying on God’s Spirit), is to share the life changing message of Jesus with people and help them become lifelong followers of Jesus.

That everything we do as a church will be measured against this purpose.

That at Fairfield Baptist, visitors and people seeking to explore Christianity will find a warm and welcoming place.

Who We Are

We are one of many Baptist Church families associated with the Baptist Churches of NZ. Fairfield Baptist is a friendly, welcoming community of believers from all seasons and walks of life who meet together to experience the love and grace of Jesus Christ. We love  seeing people connecting with God and other people and enjoy sharing our lives together in community.
We believe that our mission as a church (relying on God’s Spirit), is to share the life changing message of Jesus with people and to help them become lifelong followers of Jesus. Everything we do as a church, needs to be measured against this purpose.

What we are here for

We believe that our mission as a church (relying on God’s Spirit), is to share the life changing message of Jesus with people and to help them become life-long followers of Jesus.
Everything we do as a church, needs to be meas-ured against this purpose.
It is our prayer and desire to be a healthy, strong, and growing church. A place:

  • Where everyone finds hope and answers.
  • Where seekers are welcome and challenged.
  • Where believers are encouraged to become ‘Christ like’ in everything they do.
  • Where everyone has a role to fulfil in serving Jesus and others.
  • From which believers go out into the community to influence unbelievers for Jesus through their lifestyle and testimony.

The church is made up of believers, and it is through the church that we serve Jesus, one another, and those who do not know Him.
Jesus taught this by word and example.

How will we do this

It is our prayer and desire to be a healthy, strong, and growing church.  A place where:

  • Everyone finds hope and answers.
  • The Word of God is presented with practical teaching that is appropriate and relevant to the challenges of today’s world.
  • Prayer must take priority both in receiving direction from the Lord and carrying it out. We believe that unless God is involved in what we are doing, we are wasting our time and unless we move ahead in prayerful dependence on God for direction, power and resources, nothing of any eternal value will be accomplished.
  • Every person has a part to play! Ephesians 4:11-13 makes it clear that the ministry of the church is carried out by the believers (saints) not by a select few. So it is our desire to see every person participating in the ministry God has called us to.
  • Believers are encouraged to become ‘Christ like’ in everything they do.
  • New people, visitors, and those who are seeking to know more about the Word of God  always feel welcome.
  • All people are always welcome, come as you are.

Through the various FBC ministries: Our prayer and desire is that every ministry and activity in the church should have as its primary purpose to help people come to Jesus and develop as lifelong followers of Jesus.
