We are a non-denominational local church based in Auckland with friends around the country.
It formed in 2014 out of a desire to return to the original gospel – the good news of God’s amazing grace unveiled in the person and finished work of Jesus.
Richie Lewis heads it up.
His background involves over a decade in the NZ Police as a CIB investigator and sergeant in South Auckland. He then spent a decade in fulltime ministry before leaving to return to policing.
That changed after a profound revelation of grace led Richie to share the message publicly. The foundation text…
For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. (1 Cor. 2:2).
Like-minded folks gathered.
Richie and his wife Mandy are blessed with a seasoned leadership group and church members who share the same passion for the gospel, and a desire to see people grow in grace through experiencing Jesus.
Richie, Warren and Moidin take care of the preaching and teaching.
Coming from Zimbabwe, Moidin and Deidre have a remarkable faith story and possess an infectious passion for the gospel. Formerly care group leaders at New Creation Church in Singapore, Warren and Lena have a wealth of knowledge and experience in the areas of teaching and pastoral care.
Richie, Stephen, Roberta and Whiti are our trustees.
Tommy and Jasmine take care of the technical stuff and are a source of great grace-based material. Laz, Api and Pearl head up the music. Akulani, Wallace, Lani Jr. and Marlon provide invaluable support with setup and music.
There are others in the background too, in Auckland and around the country, who provide tremendous encouragement and support. Like Dave and Rocky in Wellington.
It’s still early days and we are excited about a future where it’s all about JESUS. We’d love you to join us.
For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. 2 Cor 4:5
