The Girls' Brigade Crest is our International unifying symbol, worn as part of the uniform all around the world. In the Centre a CROSS, the symbol of Christ and His Church; below it a LAMP, that our light may shine out upon the world; above it a CROWN, that we may know Christ as our King; and behind it all a TORCH, the flame of Christ's living Spirit.
We acknowledge Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord according to the Bible and aim to bring glory to the only true God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Our ministry is to the girls and young women of New Zealand, recognising that girls have personal gifts, callings, characters and needs – some of which are gender specific, so that girls benefit from time and space to be girls valued as people each made in God’s image.
We witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ ...
• who transforms, saves and gives life now and eternally to all who come to him by faith
• who modelled and empowers living that honours God and is good for all
• who makes possible a just, loving and peaceful society where all people are valued equally
Seek, Serve and Follow Christ
Girls’ Brigade New Zealand aims to help girls become followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, and to find true enrichment of life ...
• through faith, self-control, reverence and a sense of responsibility
