The Worldwide Church of God's vision for New Zealand and beyond is summarised in the motto: "Living and sharing the Gospel." God's graciousness has equipped us with a message of hope and encouragement for the wider Christian community, as well as for all people generally.
Administration aims to assist the work of the church with resourcing and other support enabling the living of transparent, Christ-centred lives so that the light of the Gospel is seen, and for the building of disciples for the Lord.
The Worldwide Church of God, which has been in New Zealand since 1967, is registered as a charitable trust. An office was first opened in Auckland in 1968 to service the growing work of that time. The office, which administers the church's operations in New Zealand and some of the Pacific islands, primarily Fiji, Vanuatu, Tonga and the Cook Islands, is located on Auckland's North Shore and is managed by Rex Morgan (see the Contacts page for address and phone details).
In February 2002 the Worldwide Church of God, in line with administrative changes then being implemented around the world, moved to incorporate as a charitable Trust -- "The Worldwide Church of God (New Zealand) Trust". The administrative representative to the Board is the office manager. A pastoral representative, who is the chair of the National Pastoral Team, which was formed in 2002 alongside the Board, reports on all pastoral management matters within the church in New Zealand.
