Helping international students in New Zealand become life-long followers of Jesus Christ, equipping and enabling them to reach their communities and nations for Him.
We are a community of Jesus Christ’s followers who value the richness of different cultures and are passionate in serving international students. We fully depend on God and His word, and work prayerfully and lovingly in serving with one another. We value unity and empowerment by God. We exist to: Help international students in New Zealand become life-long followers of Jesus Christ, equipping and enabling them to reach their communities and nations for Him.
All international students in New Zealand have the opportunity to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ. Students from many countries – some inaccessible to traditional missionary endeavour – grow as followers of Jesus Christ while studying in New Zealand, continue to serve God throughout their lives, and help many in their home countries and around the world become and grow as followers of Jesus Christ, thereby helping reach their communities and countries for Jesus Christ.
We hold a set of core beliefs that form the foundation of our ministry
That the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are inspired by God and inerrant in the original writings, and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life.
In one God, the Creator, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
That Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary and that He was and remains true God and true man.
That God created Adam and Eve in the divine image; that they sinned, and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God; and that, as a result of Adam’s sin, all human beings are now born with a sinful nature and stand guilty before God.
That the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.
In the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven, and in His present life there for us, as High Priest and Advocate.
In the blessed hope of the personal and imminent return of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
That all who by faith receive the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.
That the Holy Spirit indwells and gives spiritual life to all believers, enables them to understand biblical truth, empowers them for godly living and equips them for service and witness.
In the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost.
