Mission Statement...

Encouraging women to:

  • develop a personal faith in Jesus Christ as Saviour
  • grow in the Christian faith through the teaching of the Word of God
  • cope with life in all its complexities
  • play a more effective role in their churches and their service for the Lord


    About 10 years after its beginnings in Australia, CWCI was established in New Zealand in 1968. A non-denominational and now an international organisation, it has touched the lives of thousands of women throughout the world through a variety of activities.

    The importance of studying God's Word is at the heart of CWCI, and Know Your Bible (KYB) studies are currently translated into approximately 45 languages and are being used in more than 70 countries around the world.

    KYB groups meet from Kaitaia to Invercargill, and along with CWCI Retreats, Tours and Events, women throughout New Zealand are being encouraged in their Christian lives.

    We believe:

    - that the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is the uniquely inspired Word of God, and is the only and wholly trustworthy test of Christian faith and conduct.

    - in one God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

    - in the absolute deity and full humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ. We believe in His virgin birth, His sinless life, and the authenticity of His miracles. We believe in His representative and substitutionary sacrifice, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the Father, His present life as Lord of all, High Priest and Advocate, and His personal return in power and glory.

    - that each member of the human race is fallen, sinful and lost and therefore subject to God's condemnation.

    - that the shed blood of Jesus Christ provides the only ground for forgiveness of sins and justification to all who receive Him by faith; and that only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit do they receive the gift of eternal life and become children of God.

    - that the Holy Spirit indwells all believers, enabling them to understand and apply the Scriptures, and empowering them for godly living, service and witness.

    - that the dead will be raised bodily either to eternal life or eternal condemnation.
