During the opening day of the 2014 Synod of the Moravian Church Northern Province, the Rev. Dr. Craig Atwood shared his work on the essentials of the Moravian Church.
Atwood, the Charles D. Couch Associate Professor of Moravian Theology and Ministry at Moravian Theological Seminary and director for the Center for Moravian Studies, discussed Moravian theology in terms of essentials, ministerials and incidentals.
In his talk, Atwood focused on how Moravian history and our understanding of what is important to being a Christian shapes our faith today. He concludes that these are the essential things: God creates; God redeems; God blesses. And we respond in faith, in love and in hope.
Below is his complete presentation to Synod.
