About Moravians:

The Moravian Church in America, part of a worldwide Protestant denomination serving Christ since 1457, continues a long-standing heritage of Christian faith, mission outreach, service to the community and the world, ecumenical cooperation, and rich musical worship. The Moravian Church is Christ-centered, emphasizing community, the person and teachings of Jesus, and simplicity in doctrine and lifestyle. Our relationship with Jesus Christ provides the basis for our relationship with each other and inspires us to serve. We also look to the leading of the Holy Spirit to guide our daily lives. The Moravian Church’s official motto is “Our Lamb has conquered. Let us follow Him.” In addition, Moravians are guided by these words: “In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; and in all things, love.” Today’s Moravian Church strives to live the “essentials” of a Christian life: God creates, God redeems, and God sustains. We respond to God’s actions with faith, love and hope. The Moravian Church recognizes the sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion. Moravians also share The Daily Texts, a devotional published since 1731 around the globe. For more information, visit Moravian.org.
