vision for surfside 2021


A church with Jesus at the centre


A church beating with the heartbeat of Jesus:

He tangata, he tangata, he tangata


A church with a tremendous mixture of people,

including those yet to come into God’s house and call it home


A church where people find freedom and life –

eternal life


A church where people grow in faith, discover purpose,

become who they were created to be, and excel


A church that cannot be ignored


A church of influence established in the heart of Raglan,

making an impact for God beyond this community


A church pulsing with life, passion and energy


A church that surprises

because it is empowered by the Holy Spirit


Surfside 2021 will be a church focused on

Jesus, people and purpose


We believe: 

In one God. The three in one: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. 

The Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God.

Jesus Christ was God made flesh. He was crucified, died and rose again on the third day. He returned to the Father. We look forward to His second coming.

How awesome is this place! This is none other than the House of God; this is the Gate of Heaven
— Genesis 28:17
