Te Aka Ora, what does “Te Aka Ora” mean, the meaning behind the name. The philosophy and way of working is:

Values - Galatians- 5-, v 22

But the Spirit produces love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, and self-control. There is no law against things as these. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have put to death their human nature with all its passions and desires. The spirit has given us life; he must also control our lives. We must not be proud or irritate one another or be jealous of one-another.

The Vine- John 15-1-5

I am the real vine and my Father is the gardener. He breaks off every branch in me that does not bare fruit, and he prunes every branch that does bear fruit, so that it will be clean and bear more fruit. You have made clean already by teaching I have given you. Remain united to me and I will remain united to you. A branch cannot bear fruit by itself; it can do so only if it remains in the vine. In the same way you cannot bear fruit unless you remain with me.
