Moravian Church

The Moravian Church (Latin: Unitas Fratrum, meaning "Unity of the Brethren") is a Protestant denomination. This church was formed in Moravia (original Morava), but its religious heritage began in 1457 in Kunvald, Bohemia, autonomy region of Holy Roman Empire. It places a high premium on Christian unity, personal piety, missions, and music.

The church's emblem is the Lamb of God (right) with the flag of victory, surrounded by the Latin inscription: Vicit agnus noster, eum sequamur, or in English: "Our Lamb has conquered, let us follow Him".

Famous quotes containing the word church:

    I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish Church, by the Roman Church, by the Greek Church, by the Turkish Church, by the Protestant Church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind is my own church.
    Thomas Paine (1737–1809)
