Twenty nine years ago Grace to You was birthed in New Zealand and was an affiliate of Grace To You in Los Angeles. In June 2009 Grace To You made the decision to close the majority of it’s stores around the world and make it’s material available on line. This meant a choice of either closing down or going it alone. The Board of Trustees unanimously decided that the ministry was to continue and others spoken to, affirmed this. It was deemed to be important and vital in reaching the people of our land with God’s truth and good Christian materials for equipping the saints.
On 1 July 2009 the ministry’s name changed to Gracebooks NZ and is part of Gracebooks Community Trust – a charitable, not for profit Trust and continues to be the primary source of Dr. John MacArthur’s material, and the range of authors and titles have significantly increased.
God’s goal for His church is that we attain to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ (Ephesians 4:13). God wants us, His people, His church, to mature spiritually. This happens as we come “to the unity of the faith and knowledge of the Son of God” (Ephesians 4:13). We recognize the paramount importance of God’s people being fed with sound biblical doctrine, and the Holy Spirit giving life and understanding to His Word.
The passion of our hearts here at Gracebooks NZ is to come alongside church leaders as well as fellow Christians to assist in the endeavor to grow spiritually, thus bringing glory to God.
