OUR MISSION - WHY WE EXIST
The mission of Eternal Purpose Ministries (EPM) is to help believers understand, embrace & devote their lives to God's timeless vision for the church and the family.
We are a registered non-profit ministry, based in New Zealand.
Through Christ, God has called every believer to be part of His eternal purpose - which ultimately is for Christ’s name to be magnified in all the earth (Ephesians 3:1-11).
This is primarily carried out within the day-to-day roles believers have both in the local church, and the family. We are living in a time in which there is much confusion, and much compromise in regards to the purpose and the function of the church, and the purpose and function of the family. Our desire, by God's grace, is to uphold God's vision for church and family, based upon the authority of God's Word.
We are committed to the task of encouraging believers to live wholeheartedly for Christ, through the practical application of God’s Word, by faith, and in dependence upon the Holy Spirit. Working in partnership with the local church, our ministry provides biblical teaching, one-on-one and small group discipleship, conferences (such as the ENGAGE conference in NZ), and the production of resources in various media formats. Our ministry relies upon the prayers, and financial support of believers who desire to support our mission. Our particular emphasis, is helping believers when they just don't know where to start with such things as leading family devotions, effectively sharing the gospel with unbelievers, and practically applying God's Word to all areas of our lives.
