Welcome to Rotorua Baptist Church
A place where hope is found and lives are transformed. A place to grow and thrive.
One thing we know about Church, it is not a building - it is the people. And people are precious. We are a group of people of all ages, life and faith stages, ethnicities and backgrounds. We are committed to our community and beyond. We desire to be a group of people who enjoy being together and are continually growing - learning from each other and growing closer to Jesus as we do life together.
We hope that we have created a space that is safe, caring, welcoming and loving for all. A space to explore the big questions in life, to find hope and live transformed lives. A space to not only grow but to thrive.
We are glad you stopped by - this website is only a snapshot of who we are and what is important to us. If you have any questions or would like to chat, please contact us via phone, email or catch up with us after a Sunday service.
We would love to connect with you. There is space for YOU in our whare karakia (Church).
"Everyone will know you are my followers, by your love for one another". John 13:35
