The Triune God – Creator, Jesus Christ, Holy Spirit – as revealed in the Holy Scripture of the Old and New Testaments – is the core of who we are and why we are the church. Every aspect of a healthy congregation is grounded in scripture and rooted in prayer. God’s Word informs how we live, and prayer connects us with God and all God’s people. Healthy congregations frame their life together in the Ground of the Unity and the Moravian Covenant for Christian Living. Within this environment, a healthy congregation exhibits these seven basic characteristics: Purpose, Worship, Community, Spiritual Formation, Stewardship, Leadership, Mission and Service.
As a resource for congregations as they work to explore, grow and develop these characteristics this site will serve as a holding place for links, book reviews, and other resources that help to build up healthy conversations for healthier congregations in the Moravian Church, Northern Province.
