Ngā Kōrero Karaipiture

Karakia Mihingare

Te Hāhi Mihingare

And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.  And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.’  Matthew 28.18-20
