Christians United in Prayer

Christians around the world received with consternation the news of the tragic death of 21 Copts brothers at the hands of IS terrorists.

We pray for the eternal rest of the 21 Copts brothers killed by IS terrorists, and for their grieving families.

May the Almighty grant their families and the whole Coptic family peace in the midst of this senseless and tragic crimes.

May the words of the psalmist brings them consolation and hope:

“I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” Psalm 27:13-14


Rev. Carlos Malavé, executive director, Christian Churches Together in the USA

Who are the Moravians?

It is essential that we never lose sight of the fact that our faith is not simply a list of statements about us or our Church. Our faith is relationship — relationship with Jesus Christ. This provides a basis for relationship with each other. This should always be the foundation of our understanding of Moravian identity. Once we understand this, then we can use the statements below as a way to describe this relationship.

  • Moravians believe in one God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit
  • Moravians believe that Jesus Christ is the way to God and God’s way to us.
  • Moravians believe that a personal, heart-felt relationship with God through Jesus Christ is an essential part of faith.
  • Moravians hold that faith in Jesus Christ must also be a community experience.
  • Moravians believe the Church is called into existence by Jesus Christ to serve him and follow him.
  • Moravians find guidance for doctrine and faith through the Bible.
  • Moravians subscribe to the major creeds of the Church, including the Apostles’ and the Nicene creeds.
  • Moravians share God’s love in word and deed with people of other cultures and in all the world.
  • Moravians have a heritage of creativity in our music and worship.
  • Moravians believe that discerning God’s will is a task to be shared among many leaders rather than to be vested in a single person or office. Thus, there is a conferential form of government which shares this responsibility.
  • Moravians place great value on their ties with Christians of other Moravian provinces and with Christians of other denominations throughout the world.
