Along with the worldwide Moravian Church, Friedberg believes in the fundamental teachings of Christianity as revealed by God in the Bible. More specifically, the church
We are called to be faithful stewards of the time, talents and finances God has entrusted to us. Friedberg supports not only the charitable, missionary and other benevolent causes of the Moravian Church, but also worthy causes of other Christian churches as well as outside the church.
Friedberg, and the worldwide Moravian Church, seeks fellowship with other Christian churches regardless of varying opinions and ceremonies particular to each church. We know it is God’s will that we should seek unity with all believers, celebrating the many gifts the Lord has given to the different denominations and sharing with one another the variety we have.
Our church has a genuine concern for the world and a desire to share the message of the love of God to our neighbors and community at large, ministering to their needs (Matthew 25:40). Knowing that Christ’s salvation is for all people and that He has made of one blood all nations (Acts 17:26), we do not discriminate on the basis of color, race, creed or nationality.
Friedberg practices public baptism by sprinkling. As with the universal Christian Church, we believe baptism is the visible sign of being united with Christ in His death and resurrection, dying to sin and walking in newness of life (Romans 6:1-11).
Communion is open to all believers regardless of denomination or origin. Friedberg does not attempt to declare the mystery of Christ’s presence in the communion elements, but allows the believer to share in covenant with Christ the Savior and with other believers. Communion is a celebratory time of worship, fellowship, and personal covenant with Christ.
