Our vision is to see the kingdom of God advance locally, nationally and globally, to see His purposes released on the earth, and to build big people in God who are trained, equipped and released to take their part in the body of Christ – radical revolutionaries for the purposes of the Cross!

Roger and Lorraine Hagen founded the Mission Fellowship in 1994 after a clear mandate from the Lord. For the first two years Team Missions, their itinerant ministry group helped with the church plant. The Lord called the Mission Fellowship to worship, warfare, healing, deliverance, and to be a ‘house of prayer’ for the nations.
In 1995 the first overseas mission to Central Asia was launched. Since that time numerous missions to Central Asia, India, Zimbabwe, Fiji, and other nations have been conducted to see the local church in each nation strengthened and equipped for its purpose.
In 2007 the first National Apostolic & Prophetic conference was held in Nelson and, together with Training & Equipping schools in the prophetic, healing, and deliverance, were effective tools for equipping the saints for Gods purposes.
In 2014, David and Nina were commissioned as Pastors of the Mission Fellowship in Nelson, as Lorraine stepped into a further apostolic role overseeing the ministry of the Mission nationally and globally, and travelling itinerantly as the Lord directs.
What we believe
We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God, and that none may add or take away from it.
We believe that the Godhead eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit and these three are one God.
We believe that the Church consists of all persons who have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and made new people in Christ Jesus.
We believe that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that through the death and risen power of Christ, all who believe and confess Jesus as Lord can be saved from the penalty and power of sin.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the healer and that healing is provided for in the atonement.
We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ is the Baptiser in the Holy Spirit, and that this baptism with signs following is a promise for every believer.
The COMING KING
We believe in the personal return of our Lord Jesus Christ to receive to Himself all born again believers.
We believe that the Church should claim and express the nine gifts of the Holy Spirit, 1 Corinthians 12:8-10.
