Who we are

Our Vision

We strive to Live like Jesus

Jesus is our ultimate role model so we acknowledge him as Lord of our life. Because of this we believe that wholehearted submission to God's will and His word is the starting point of the Christian faith and the foundation of all spiritual growth.

Our desire is to Love without Measure

We exist to share the life and love of Jesus with others who want to know about him and help grow fully devoted followers of Jesus. We acknowledge that being in community is an integral part of being a Christian. We want to be a people of Grace and follow the words of Micah 6:8 - To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with our God.

We recognise that together we are on a journey and need to Learn our Faith.

There is nothing comfortable about the bible, nothing easy about our faith. We should never cease to question the bible or be questioned by it. For most, understanding our faith is, and should be, a struggle because it challenges every part of our being. Let's learn our faith together.

We want to Lead to make a difference.

We believe that every follower of Jesus is called to mission. We as a church strive to be intentional about sharing our personal spiritual journeys with those outside the church. This means the focus of the church is not so much on what goes on inside the building on a Sunday, but what our people are doing throughout the week.

History of Otumoetai Baptist Church Tauranga

OBC has always had a huge vision. It began back in 1953, when a Sunday school of up to 60 children was started in a local garage. The church itself was established in 1958.

Like any church it has had its ups and downs but it has always had a call and vision to make a difference in our community and around the world.

Over the years OBC has impacted many lives, planted several churches and sent numerous missionaries all over the world. These people are now in turn impacting the lives of many others.

While we celebrate the past and all that God has done, and how he has used us, we are very much aware that we have a huge responsibility as we look to the future. We hope that you might be part of that future too.   Edit

The power of Christian prayer Grant me, O Lord...
Grant me, O Lord, to know what I ought to know,to love what I ought to love, to praise what delights Thee most, to value what is precious in Thy sight, to hate what is offensive to Thee. Do not suffer me to judge according to the sight of my eyes, nor to pass sentence according to the hearing of the ears of ignorant men; but to discern with a true judgment between things visible and spiritual, and above all, always to inquire what is the good pleasure of Thy will.
