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.
