welcome to
windsor park baptist church

Based in Auckland, New Zealand, we have two physical campuses located in Mairangi Bay on the North Shore and on Waiheke Island, as well as an online campus.


We're intentional about doing life & faith together, acknowledging that no perfect people are allowed. We're Jesus loving, community-centred and passionate about building stronger communities by putting our faith into action! 


We're big believers in equipping the next generation, serving His Kingdom and bringing His love and truth to our world. You can see our heart as a church by checking out our vision & values below.

what we believe

At the core we're a community of people who believe in God the Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Spirit—one God; who are repentant of sin and have been saved by personal faith in Jesus Christ through His atoning death and resurrection; who publicly confess their faith and are committed to the Church’s aims and purposes.


WE BELIEVE IN:

  • The true humanity and deity of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • The person of the Holy Spirit as the one who sets apart, empowers, and imparts spiritual gifts to the Church.
  • The inspiration of the Bible and its authority in all matters of faith and practice.
  • Salvation and membership in the Christian Church by faith in Christ alone.
  • The immersion of believers as the scriptural form of baptism.

THE ORDINANCES OF THE CHURCH ARE:

  • Believers’ baptism by immersion.
  • Communion (The Lord’s Supper) which is usually held on the 1st Sunday of each month and is open to all believers.

OUR MAKE UP

We're one of over 240 Baptist churches in Aotearoa that make up the Baptist Churches of New Zealand and are governed by a team of Elders who are elected at our AGM by our members.


While we acknowledge that Jesus is the head of the church, the Elders are the 'hands and feet' of Jesus and are responsible for the overall governance and spiritual oversight of all Windsor Park activities (much like how a Board of Trustees governs a school). The Elders delegate 'on the ground' operations to our Senior Pastor, Grant Harris, who leads and empowers a diverse staff team who, in turn, are empowered to recruit and equip teams of volunteers to undertake all the ministry functions of Windsor Park Baptist Church (Ephesians 4:12), which means that at our heart we're a grassroots-up organisation.
