King’s Church, Christchurch is a big family. We love God. We are God's people, on God's mission for God's glory.
King’s is a Christian church made up of people of all ages and all kinds of backgrounds. We are a big family. We love God. We follow the Bible. We care about people.
Early on we were gifted the name Kingi Whanau by a well respected Maori Christian leader. This wonderful gift expresses who we are beautifully.
To express who we are as King's Church we often say that we are God's People on God's Mission for God's Glory.
Church is all about people. People the same as us. People different from us. People we like. People who are not easy to like. People who are Christians. People who have yet to make that decision. God loves all people. So do we.
Jesus’ command to the church is to Go! That means taking God’s love through our words and our works to neighbours, colleagues, family and those we have never met. Whether that's on our doorstep or in other countries, we are reaching nations.
Someone once said ‘The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy him forever.’ We simply say, ‘Enjoying God.’ Christianity is not about religion or duty. It’s about God the Father who created us and loves us, who won us back into a relationship with himself through Jesus Christ and shares his life with us through the Holy Spirit. This doesn't mean an easy life, but knowing God is the most satisfying pursuit in the universe.
