Uniting Women in the Body of Christ across Denominations, Races and Generations…
“Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to one hope when you were called— one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.” Ephesians 4:3-6
Jesus has just one Church, one bride composed of all who have earnestly put their trust in Him. To God we are not Americans, Asians, Europeans or Africans; we’re not Baptists, Pentecostals, Methodists or Catholics. God does not see us as black, white, or any other color. In fact, the names of our denominations, races—and even most of our countries—are nowhere to be found in the Bible.
God desires passionately that His people would love one another as a true family. In fact, just before going to die on the Cross, Jesus prayed that all who believe in Him would live in such unity that the world would be compelled to realize that God the Father had sent Him and that God loves the followers of Jesus every bit as much as He loves Jesus Himself. As we live together in unity, we delight the heart of God and stir the hearts of both Christians and non-Christians. We demonstrate that God does the impossible. He brings together people that the world divides and empowers them to “fervently love one another from the heart” (1 Peter 1:22).
The desire of Morninglight Ministries is that the Lord truly make us, His daughters, one in Christ. We pray that the love and unity God brings to us will spill over into and transform our individual families, churches, communities, and the Body of Christ as a whole.
What We Do
Although we have not tracked tracked the precise number of women and churches who have participated in Morninglight over the years, God has done a special unifying work. We are always blessed and amazed to see God’s hand bring together women from:
- All generations, from teenagers through ladies in their eighties!
- A wide variety of church backgrounds–including Baptist, Evangelical, Charismatic, Catholic, Pentecostal, Lutheran, Free Methodist–from dozens of churches.
- Many countries, including England, the Netherlands, British West Indies, Rwanda, Burundi, DR Congo, Zambia, Guyana, Liberia, Kenya, France and from all parts of the United States.
- A multitude of races and ethnic backgrounds, even from within the same nation.
