Tell others about Jesus like the Moravians:

Though not all Christians are called to the ministry of foreign missionary,  we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). _________________


 A Missionary Classic

A Pivotal Moment In Church History

In 1732 two young Moravians left their comfortable community of Herrnhut, Germany, convinced that they were called of God to bring the Gospel to the slaves in the West Indies.  They went, willing to become slaves themselves if necessary, to minister to these oppressed people.  The Moravians pioneered a mission movement characterized by extraordinary commitment.

The Moravians sent out more missions in 20 years than all Christians had in 200 years. 

Under the dynamic leadership of Count Nikolaus von Zinzendorf the Moravians sent out more missions in 20 years than all Christians had in 200 years.  They were driven by two strong convictions: world evangelization is a prime obligation of the church, and every member of the Christian community has this responsibility.

First Fruits unfolds the suffering which these young men endured for their missionary zeal and the agony of their community in deciding to send them forth at a time when missions to the heathen masses were unthinkable among Protestants.  You will especially marvel over the "first fruits" of their ministry and the impact of their vision on the course of human history. ______________________________
