Our history

Lincoln Baptist Church was founded in 1876. There have been many changes in the last 140+ years in Lincoln, across NZ and in the church, but the mission remains the same: to be a community church for the wider community. We are excited about who Jesus is and what he’s done for us and want everyone to hear about Jesus; it’s our mission and purpose from 1876 right unto now, 140+ years later.

On October 2nd 2016 we celebrated 140 years of God’s goodness in being a community church for the wider community.
Many of us dressed up in fashions of the last 140 years, and we had a huge potluck lunch to celebrate.
