Essentials: Christ as Savior is the one big essential. Baptism, communion, the Trinity are other essentials to the Moravian faith.
Non-Essentials: Variety of worship forms, musical selections, clergy styles, the manner of baptism, method of communion are all non-essentials at the heart of our liberty in the faith. We go beyond tolerance to acceptance of diversity.
In all things Love: Love affirms our unity rather than our divisions. Love has the power to overcome our differences by refocusing our concern on all that we have in common. Love not only brings us together in God’s family, but keeps us together as a community of faith.
