Welcome to the website of
The Believer's Newsletter, NZ
After Bro. Charles shared his vision of sending out a monthly newsletter, with some christian brothers, eventually the vision became a reality and on the 1st March 2008, the first Believers Newsletter was Emailed out to Message believers throughout New Zealand and Australia. And it has gained momentum until Christians from all over the world receive this message of God's love and caring - as a healer of their sickness, in the christian believers' testimonies of God's goodness to them. Also we send out news items of visiting Speakers, Missionary reports, planned Young People's Camps (N.Z. or offshore) This encourages our Christian friends in this difficult time. When we see nations rising against nations and tribulation abounding, as young folk are turning to Drugs and Alcohol, they can hear the message of deliverance.
Today, Brother Charles Wilson, and the committee provide a medium for the dissemination of testimonies, comments, news, interesting anecdotes and missionary reports - anything that would glorify God and could encourage a fellow pilgrim.
The organising Committee has been ably supported by a number of brothers and sisters at different times, each contributing their skills to enable the publication of a quality newsletter to the glory of God. Initially it was in an email format, circulated amongst the pastors and ministering brethren in New Zealand. Some recipients then printed the Believers' Newsletter for their own congregations, but the distribution grew quickly to include those outside the main fellowships and also became a way of linking isolated saints who lacked the opportunity for regular fellowship. In addition, distribution facilitated by the internet, quickly spread the Believer's Newsletter well beyond the shores of New Zealand.
By the latter half of 2010, the distribution list grew, and the Believers' Newsletter now goes across the Tasman to Australia and the Pacific, to North America and to Europe and South Africa. This change of readership pattern reinforces the original aim to promote material that will encourage saints on their journey. We prefer to leave doctrinal issues to the local Pastor's realm.
Bro Charles Wilson
Charles was a retired Businessman, after which, he became involved in managing a Christian Radio Broadcasting Station throughout the central North Island for ten years and also wrote a weekly Christian Editorial during that era. It was after Charles and Joan shifted to the Bay of Islands that he was baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and two years later, introduced the Believers Newsletter. He and his wife, Joan, have two grown up sons.
Bro Dean Gilchrist

He has been associated with the end time message for over 40 years and has had the privilege of seeing and experiencing many things along the journey. He is currently pastoring a Church in Wanganui where he lives with his wife Michelle and their two children. You can visit their church web site on: www.end-time-message.org
Bro Adrian Gray
- Missions Coordinator
Adrian came to the Lord in 1983 at an A.O.G. Church in New Plymouth, N.Z. The Lord caused his farm contract to end soon after which caused him to shift to another area where unbeknown to him was a message church. So in 1984 he was baptized in the name of The Lord Jesus Christ and his spiritual life changed radically to where he is ministering the message today. Adrian and his wife Mary have three grown up children. Their son, Matthan has ministered from the age of 15 years.
Bro Graeme Harnett

He progressed into the Message of the Hour in its fulness over twenty years ago and Pastors a fellowship in a suburb of Christchurch. He lives in West-Lake in Christchurch with his wife Miriam his three adult children their spouses and grandchildren.
Bro Andy Clifford

But looking back he can see God's hand in his life, being translated by a series of supernatural events, 8 years ago. He brings skills in graphics, writing, and publishing to the BNL. "He that has been forgiven of much, loves much". He lives in Wellington with his wife and three children.
Bro David Shearer
- Technical, Webmaster
David accepted the Lord as saviour at 15 years old. At 16 he attended a meeting in Palmerston North, where Bro Pearry Green was showing the films of Brother Branham. (1970). He was baptised later that year at the first Gisborne Convention. He has been involved in 'technical' things all of his life. As BNL webmaster, over the last five years, he has added more than 1600 pages to this site, most in languages other than English.
Sister Joan Wilson
Sister Joan helped her husband, Bro. Charles in a secretarial role which she had pursued all her working life. She considerd her voluntary duties in the Believers Newsletter as more blessed and rewarding spiritually, than any of her other careers that she had previously.
Sister Joan went to be with Jesus on 9 July 2014.
Some people won't walk across the street to see one of the meetings, and she come from the utmost parts of the world to hear the wisdom of Solomon. And behold a greater than Solomon is here. Solomon's God is with us, sure, doing the same thing He did in Solomon's day. No wonder Jesus said she'd rise in the judgment and condemn this generation.
