Otautau Connect is part of New Life Churches New Zealand. We are located in at 13 Chester street, Otautau with a new facility being constructed on Main Street. We love and worship Jesus and have a culture of loving and honoring each other in our community. We love to build healthy families, strong marriages, life long friendships and committed disciples of Jesus.


Come and be a part of our family!

Our Vision Statement could be summed up in these 3 powerful actions:

Loving Jesus, Growing Together, Serving our World.

Jesus taught us to pray: Let your Kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. We hope and pray for more heaven and earth collisions; for light to push out darkness, for peace for our souls, for hope to arise in a desperate world, for healing where there is hurt and disease.

We long for people to connect with Jesus and their God given destiny and purpose in life.

We desire a world with more kindness, compassion and love; for more of God’s presence, glory and power.

We realize that God, through Jesus, has placed us here as agents of that change and we believe we are to display his love in action by simply stopping for the one, reaching out and serving our world as we love Him and grow together.

Our Beliefs


We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our every day lives.

We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.

We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ as both God and man is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.

We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and the ‘new birth’ we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives.

We believe that in order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be baptised in water and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enables us to use spiritual gifts, including speaking in tongues.

We believe that God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives which is to worship God, fulfill our role in the Church and serve the community in which we live.

We believe that God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and prosperous lives in order to help others more effectively.

We believe that our eternal destination of either Heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.
