Communities where Christ is least known

Maori

The Polynesian Maori people migrated to New Zealand in the 1400s to take advantage of the fishing and natural resources offered by the South Pacific islands. The European explorers began arriving in the 1600s with the formation of settlements in the 1800s. New Zealand combines Polynesian and European heritage, making it an interesting blend of cultures with unique characteristics.

The Maori have a long tradition of group singing, dancing, art and crafts. Woodcarving is a notable art of this culture. Most of the Maori have urbanised, but many retain elements of their traditional history. They brought their belief in a plethora of Polynesian gods and goddesses to the islands. The Europeans also brought their customary Christian beliefs to New Zealand.

Today New Zealand is multi-cultural and religiously plural, in need of a consistent presentation of biblical Christianity. Recently, a fresh stirring of the Wairua Tapu (the Holy Spirit) has begun amongst Maori. SIM New Zealand serves the New Zealand Church by encouraging and equipping believers to build relationships with people of other faiths and ethnicities for the sake of the gospel.
