From its inception, the Moravian Church has
emphasized a simple message, a liturgy accompanied by music, education,
missions, and a fellowship of believers.
The modern Moravian Church is a mainstream
Protestant Church sharing a common body of beliefs with all Christians.
The heart of that faith is that Jesus is our Lord
and Savior and salvation comes by His grace, through our repentance for sins,
and through our faith in Him.
Moravians understand that there may be doctrinal
differences within the Church, and their guiding principle is:
In Essentials, Unity,
In Non-Essentials, Liberty,
and In All Things, Love.
Essentials relate to the life, death, and
resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Holy Trinity, the universal nature of sin, and
the Bible as the sole standard for all our Christian beliefs.
Moravians come from all walks of life, some are
liberal and others are conservative. The nature of one's politics does not
interfere with worshiping God together. Rather, the emphasis is on God's love
for all people, fellowship, and understanding.
