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.
