Q. What does it mean to belong to Kamo Baptist Church?

A. First of all come along and join in with the family! Is this the particular Christian family/fellowship that you would like to make your own, that you can support, encourage and grow with? If the answer is “yes,” then have a talk with Greg Bedwell, (the Pastor)!

Q. Are you affiliated with other Churches?

A. There is a growing sense of unity among most of the Christian Churches in Whangarei. Our desire is for this wonderful city to know the joy and freedon there is to be found in Jesus! We are part of the ministers association, and participate in prayer and other events with a wide variety of Churches. While we relate closely with the other Baptist Churches in Whangarei, each Church is autonomous.

Q. What is Christianity all about in this day and age?

A. The gospel of Jesus dosn’t change, just the way it is presented! A Christian is someone who believes in salvation through Christ – someone who accepts that they cannot measure up to God’s standard, so without a saviour they could never enter God’s presence. By accepting that Jesus died as a sin offering for humanity, for me, and by asking him (who rose from the dead), to take the steering wheel of my life, and guide me through life’s road, I put aside my own selfish desires and instead endevour to fufil God’s desires for my life. I take “Christ” into the centre of my life, and a spiritual heart transplant takes place!
Sometimes the word “Christian” is used to describe a western culture or country. Ironically mostly those same cultures and countries are secular in their beliefs, so this is a highly inappropriate use of the term.
