In the beginning...

In October 1885 at the Assembly of the Baptist Churches of New Zealand, the gathering voted unanimously to establish the New Zealand Baptist Missionary Society. Within months the first missionary, Rosalie MacGeorge, was sent out to work with the Bengali people in India. Others quickly followed, creating over a century of missionary endeavours by New Zealand Baptists in various parts of the world.

Where on earth...

The primary geographical region of focus is South Asia, East Asia and SE Asia with some focus in the Pacific. However through the partnership with Mission World, we seek to encourage, mobilise and resource NZ Baptists - individuals and churches - to wherever in the world that God may direct
