Greenlane Christian Centre exists to help bring renewal to people and places in the city of Auckland.
We do this by talking to others about Jesus, living the values of the Kingdom of God, challenging unjust and damaging practices, and proactively helping to rebuild what is broken.
In the communities God has placed us within--our homes, our schools, our workplaces, our clubs, and our neighbourhoods.
We believe that Jesus is renewing all the broken things in our world. He provides joy and peace, even in the tough times. That’s why we keep our focus on Him.
We gather together and share moments with others. We seek the best for those who visit us so they feel at home among us.
We believe it is better to give than receive, so we share our time, energy and finances. When we see a need, we act.
We have a secure anchor in Jesus and the Bible. We find our identity, security and purpose in relationship with God. We are committed to speaking this truth boldly with grace.
We are a family of diverse ages and stages, seasons of life and ethnicities. We love people to come as they are into our community and to journey alongside us.
We all uniquely reflect the creative imprint of God. Because every believer is empowered by the presence of His Spirit. We encourage and support people to step out, try something new and take risks with God.
We strive to be real about our struggles, pains and failures, fully aware that we are imperfect people who need God every moment of the day. We foster a safe space of unafraid sharing and deep questioning.
