Like most Protestant Churches the Moravian Church practices the sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion. 

Baptism -

Moravian's believe that baptism is the entry into the life of faith in Christ.  Unlike many churches Moravians are not rigid about the "means" of baptism.  We recognize those baptized in other Christian traditions.  We do not re-baptize those who choose to join the congregation.  Though we most often practice infant baptism, we respect an individual choice as to when baptism will occur.

Communion -

In the Moravian Church we practice an open communion.  This means that anyone who professes Jesus as Lord and Savior is welcome to join with us at the Lord's Table.  This includes children from other church traditions.  If they take communion in their church we welcome them to join us.  Children in our church begin taking communion when they indicate a desire to do so and have attended our Communion Training Workshop.
