“The mission of Peace Moravian Church is to
nourish God’s community.“
We are committed to building up the entire Body of Christ by…
(1) Providing opportunities for worship and praise for all of God’s people.
(2) Sharing the love of our Lord and Savior with our neighbors, our community, and the world through innovative ministry programs, outreach activities, and fellowship events.
(3) Nurturing and encouraging the spiritual growth of every person.
As a congregation of the oldest Protestant denomination in the world, we are firmly grounded in the historic Christian doctrines and practices. Here is some information about what we believe.
During the remainder of this liturgical year, we will be focusing a large amount of attention on the letter to the Hebrews. This letter is an amazing explanation of the difference between what was, what is, and what will be in the fullness of time. Many lose their faith when encountering the harsh reality of this time, unable to grasp hope of what can be in the face of what is. Others embrace the here and now so strongly that they have no desire to give up what they have for what should be. Hebrews reminds us that what Jesus did, he did for all time. We are reminded that the victory is won and the fullness of what should be is always preserved in Jesus Christ. Our task is to believe in the promise that makes all things new and then to become that image here and now. As we imagine our future as Peace Moravian and commit ourselves to the journey, we affirm that ours is not to create a vision but reflect one.

(October 11, 2015) ) It is easy to picture Jesus as our friend, benefactor and brother. The idea of Jesus as judge may be understood, but we usually like to think of it in terms of judging those people. Judgment, however, is essential for everyone if we are going to become what God intends for us to be. In the same way that a surgeon’s knife is healing in separating that which is unhealthy from that which is healthy, so the judgment of God acts the same in the hands of our Lord. The Word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword. It is capable of seeing what we fail or deny to see in ourselves. This judgment, however, is not meant for our harm. It is for our redemption. It is so that we can be better every day. God’s kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. Rather than run away from God’s judgment, let us pray that this judgment leads us to be living and active as Children of God.
