Baptist is the magazine of the Baptist Churches of New Zealand and the New Zealand Baptist Missionary Society. It provides news, information and stories relevant to Baptists’ ministry and mission at home in Aotearoa New Zealand and abroad. Our aim is to create a sense of connection across our movement and to encourage and inspire our readers to step out in faith in their own context.

The magazine has a long history, beginning in August 1876 as a regional publication of the Canterbury Baptist Association. It is fascinating to reflect on the years of heritage found in the archives of the magazine and the changes that have occurred over time. In 2015, a further change occurred with the magazine becoming an A4 magazine with a website and associated social media.
