Category - Engagement

Foundational to Moravian belief is the fact that in Jesus, God engaged in the world. The word “Emmanuel” means “God with us,” in other words God engaged fully in our world, in our lives, and in our hearts. Foundational to the Board of World mission is the fact that we believe that God calls us to be fully engaged with our world today. Yes, we need to gather for worship, learning, and mutual support in our local congregations, but this is only meant to strengthen and equip us to go out into the world to share God’s love and grace. In other words, God calls us to be fully engaged with the world as it is today.

The Board of World Mission wishes to journey together with congregations and members of the Moravian Church in North America as we work to answer God’s call to take part in missions.
