How The Adventist Church is Organized
The Church is His body of Jesus Christ. He is both the heart and head. He lives within each member and the whole organization exists within Him. Without Christ, there is no believer and there is no church. When Christ comes into the heart, that person may be impressed to become a member.
A Member is one who has publicly accepted, through baptism or confession of faith, the teaching of the Bible as understood by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The member is then a part of the local church.
The Local Church
The Local Church is a supportive group of members accountable to each other, giving spiritual nurture and encouragement within the group and sharing the same with others as a witness. A legally-recognized entity that belongs to the North New Zealand Conference.
The North New Zealand Conference is a collective of local churches in an area large enough to provide congregations of all sizes with professional leadership, supportive and outreach ministries, training and Christian education. The North New Zealand Conference, South New Zealand Conference, French Polynesian Mission, Cook Islands Mission, New Caledonia Mission, and Pitcairn Island combine to form the New Zealand Pacific Union Conference.
The New Zealand Pacific Union Conference takes on ministries projects affecting people over large territories, such as colleges and large-scale evangelism. Unions help connect conferences and missions across many boundaries in areas of the world church known as divisions. We are part of the South Pacific Division.
The South Pacific Division is a territory covering New Zealand, South Pacific, Papua New Guinea, and Australia which allows the world church to be represented and reflected in a regional area. The division achieves the mission of the church by applying church policies in response to the needs of that region. These divisions are administrative arms of the General Conference.
The General Conference represents the World-wide church and the collective will of the church members through the elective process. This grouping brings to life the concept of "one body" headed by Christ with all body parts working in harmony. The General Conference is a representative group which reaches across many cultures and peoples and every five years comes together in an unprecedented gathering to elect officers and make decisions under the requested guidance of Jesus Christ.
Seventh-day Adventists accept the Bible as the only source of our beliefs. We consider our movement to be the result of the Protestant conviction Sola Scriptura—the Bible as the only standard of faith and practice for Christians.Find out more
