Fenton Park Bible Church

FPBC Vision


Our Vision:

A church where God is active and glorified known for sowing the gospel resulting in people being saved, affecting community for Jesus Christ, building loving intergenerational relationships that please God, and transforming lives to be like Jesus Christ.

Our Mission:

Our mission is to glorify God with the worship of our lives founded on the teaching of His word the Bible and Prayer.

Sowing the Gospel:

We see a church where its members are motivated and active in sharing their Christian faith; where new people are made to feel welcome irrespective of their culture and stage in their Christian journey; and where people are regularly coming to faith in Jesus Christ, being baptised and discipled in God’s word.

Affecting Community:

We see a church that has a reputation in Rotorua of being relevant to people’s needs, and helping to improve people’s lives; of a church that provides compassionate service to those who are disadvantaged in society and actively fights against injustice. A church that lives out the gospel in practical ways in the community that effectively communicates a Christian message.

Loving Relationships:

We see a church where there are healthy marriages and parenting relationships, and where whole families are supported and can participate fully in the life of the church. A church were people, young, old, single, and married feel connected and supported through rich, loving, godly relationships and relevant programmes.

Transforming Lives:

We see a church who are motivated to grow spiritually; who regularly study and apply the Word of God to their lives, who talk about what they are learning when they meet together, and share testimonies of life change at Sunday services and Small Group meetings. For one-to-one and small group relationships where everyone is being encouraged, supported, mentored and discipled so that they are growing to become more and more like Christ.
