Windsor Park Baptist Church is a member of the Baptist Union of New Zealand (click here to read some Baptist history and our Baptist distinctives) and is governed by a team of Elders who are elected at our AGM by those who are formal members of Windsor Park. The Elders are responsible for the overall governance and spiritual oversight of all Windsor Park activities (much like a Board of Trustees governs a school). We fully acknowledge that Jesus is the primary leader of Windsor Park, but 'on the ground' operations are under the direction of our Senior Pastor (Grant Harris) who leads and empowers a diverse staff team who in turn are empowered to recruit and equip (Ephesians 4:12) teams of volunteers to undertake all the ministry functions of Windsor Park, making us a grass-roots-up organisation.
Our vision is
to transform communities one life at a time
We achieve that by doing life and faith, together,
knowing that no perfect people are allowed.
Our values are important to us (and are in no particular order, except that the first one really is the first one):
It's all about Jesus; it's not about us. Full stop.
We have one world for everyone: 'welcome'.
The more people who are doing life and faith together, the better.
We're not scared to give things a go. Better to have tried...
Life is like a box of chocolates; we're real about that.
Embracing creativity is part of God's design.
God has been generous to us; we live that out in return.
