About EBC

Epsom Baptist Church, Epsom, Auckland, New Zealand

Epsom Baptist Church is a small Baptist church located – unsurprisingly – in Epsom, one of the suburbs surrounding central Auckland in New Zealand. Our worshipping community comprises three congregations.  The Saturday evening congregation is a Chinese one with the service conducted in Mandarin and English. The 10am Sunday morning congregation is increasingly multi-cultural, and is perhaps more a little more intentional about liturgy than many New Zealand Baptist churches.  This service is followed by an 11:30am Mandarin service, catering to a significant number of Chinese people living in our part of Auckland for whom worshipping in English is difficult. Epsom Baptist Church is seeking to grow in numbers and in influence for the Kingdom of God.

How we describe ourselves…

We are a group of Baptist believers committed to Christ, to each other and to our wider communities.

We seek to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ

  • Through our personal lives,
  • In our worship,
  • Through our common life,
  • In our service to the Epsom and Auckland communities,
  • And by playing a responsible role in the wider church.

In our personal lives, we work towards transformation into Christ-likeness through the exercise of spiritual disciplines.

In our worship we strive for a style which enables all ages to hear God’s word for today and respond with enthusiastic, reflective praise.

In our common life we seek genuine openness and submission to one another, accepting difference and diversity as part of God’s plan for the church.

In our communities we endeavour to maintain a visible Christian presence whilst taking opportunities for appropriate service, critique, and witness.

In the wider church we look to make a multi-cultural Baptist contribution to ecumenical life and issues.
