Let us help you to find your place in the world.

We live in an ever-changing world, yet the message of Acts 1:8 is unchanged. What Jesus required of his disciples at the dawn of the first millennium, he still requires of us at the dawn of the third millennium.

We have all been  called to serve God in every corner of the world. We have always understood God’s Mission – it’s Mission: World. 

As each new generation discovers and approaches its mission to the world in new and different ways Missionworld is here to help. Missionworld is a service of the New Zealand Baptist Missionary Society, whose mandate is to enable the Baptist churches of New Zealand to fulfil the Great Commission anywhere in the world that God directs.
