World Christian Gathering Of Indigenous People

Kororia ki te Matua I runga rawa. Maungarongo ki runga I te whenua.
Whakaaro pai ki nga tangata katoa.

"Glory to our Father in heaven, peace on earth, and love to all people."

It is our honour to invite all of those who wish to part of the "World Christian Gathering on Indigenous. This gathering was inspired by Monte and Linda Ohia, they lead the establishment of this gathering that celebrates that we can be authentically Christian (followers of Jesus) and authentically Indigenous (who God made us).

 The WCGIP Vision: Te Hokinga Mai: To be authentically Christian and authentically Indigenous.

For indigenous people to know God, live, and advance as indigenous people
God created our diversity and our uniqueness (our languages and culture) as people groups of the world.
Ihu/Jesus is the prototype

Our Core Values are;

PONO: Integrity with responsibility and accountability:
WHANAUNGATANGA: Relationships (sharing and caring):
AROHA: Love, bringing life, giving, serving:
WAIRUA: To be a reflection of God as created in His image, overarching all things.

The WCGIP NZ Mission Statements are based on the following key words:

God Focused
Indigenous Christ Followers
Family and Community Transformation
Manaakitanga: To look after all of those involved
