The Moravian Church, Repositioning Itself as Standard Bearer in Evangelism and Discipleship.
March 1, is a very significant date for the Moravian Church. It was on this date in 1457 that this great movement of God (The Unitas Fratrum), came into being. This was not a body looking for power and prominence, but a group of people who were zealous for the purity of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and for sharing the faith they had personally embraced. The Moravian Church, as it was later called, is the oldest surviving Protestant church – now 556 years old. It is worthwhile to note that the birthing of the church came 42 years after the death of John Hus the initiator of this puritan movement, 60 years be-fore Martin Luther began the Great Reformation in Germany, 131 years before the Church of England (The Anglican Church) separated from the denomination of Rome and 281 years before the conversion of John Wesley which is traced back to the Moravians and particularly Bishop Peter Bohler.
Moravian Moment # 178 — Our Lamb Has Conquered
August 15, 2010
Agnus Dei is a Latin term meaning Lamb of God, and was originally used to refer to Jesus Christ in his role of the perfect sacrificial offering that atones for the sins of humanity in Christian theology, stretching back to ancient Jewish Temple sacrifices. The phrase "Agnus Dei"or Lamb of God is the emblem of the Moravian Church and stands in a prominent position in every Moravian Sanctuary. The Moravian Church sees the victorious Lamb of God as quintessential to the development of our faith. There is no celebration over a powerless, defeated, dead and unreliable Christ. We worship a risen Christ who has been victorious over sin, death, the grave and the devil.
