About us

Growing Investments, Growing Churches

We exist to see Christian churches and charities throughout our nation thrive, and to give everyday New Zealanders the opportunity to grow their investments while also building the Kingdom of God in Aotearoa.

We believe in growing God's kingdom in New Zealand.

Who We Are
We're New Zealand’s leading financial institution for ethical, Christian investments and lending, enabling Kiwis to be good stewards of their finances.
What We Do
We grow the investments of everyday individuals, families, churches and charities, while lending to churches and Christian charities to help build and transform their ministries.
Our History
For over 55 years, the Christian Savings group has existed solely to help churches and Christian charities make the most of their assets for the Kingdom of God.
Our History

55+ Years of Experience

Christian Savings, formerly Baptist Savings, has been partnering with churches since 1962.

From our very first loan in 1962 helping churches acquire pews for their congregation, to currently having over $140 million in lending, we have a proven track record of lending to churches and Christian charities.
