Baptist Registration

Applications for Baptist Registration are NOW CLOSED and open again on 1st November 2024


Baptist Registration is available to all those who are ministering within, or on behalf of a Baptist faith community, or Baptist entity, or an approved body, and who fulfil certain requirements.

Registration is an endorsement that as a registrant, you are committing  to the ongoing development of character, knowledge and abilities which are deemed necessary to minister in the name of the Baptist Union of New Zealand and you are willing to uphold our core distinctives and values as New Zealand Baptists (as included in the Baptist Union of New Zealand Constitution and Baptist Administration Manual). It is open to all who meet the criteria regardless of your ministry type or function within the recognised categories of Baptist Registration.

“Professional development cannot be an optional extra for leaders involved in Christian ministry and mission. And this is why the Baptist Union Registration process is so important to me and such an incredible gift! It will keep you current in your thinking and practices, and introduce you to different and innovative ways of doing things. It will bring a healthy level of accountability to your thinking and practice, and provide friendship and support through such things as cohorts, supervision, conferences, and on-line social media”

– Charles Hewlett, Baptist National Leader
