The Salvation Army acknowledges The Treaty of Waitangi as the basis of a cultural partnership between Māori as the tangata whenua and Pakeha who have since come to make their home in Aotearoa New Zealand.
The Māori for ‘The Salvation Army’ is Te Ope Whakaora, which is translated as ‘the Army that Brings Life’.
Those involved in Māori Ministry reach out with the message of God’s love.
The goals of those involved in Māori Ministry are to:
E te Kaihanga, te Puna o te ora,
homai to kaha ki a matou i tenei ra
Karanga mai o tatou mate, otia te po
Nau mai te ao
Tatou katoa, ka nui te mihi aroha
Tena koutou, Tena koutou Tena koutou katoa
