Te Minitatanga Māori O Te Ope Whakaora O Aotearoa

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:

  • Know Te Atua (God) better
  • Worship through waiata (songs), karakia (prayer) and other forms of Māori cultural expression
  • Reach out to people in need, especially those wanting to recover from addictions (in all forms) and those who are in prison (in all its forms)
  • Enjoy fellowship together

Koheri, Kohera
E te Kaihanga, te Puna o te ora,
homai to kaha ki a matou i tenei ra
Karanga mai
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
