We must let ourselves be pierced by the eternal words of the Sermon on the Mount, and hold on to the faith that God is leading us. Faithfulness is everything. By us, the work; by him, the achievement. He remains Lord of the world. His is the kingdom and the power and the glory.- Eberhard Arnold
- Eberhard Arnold Innerland
The experience of God is the love that conquers all opposition. It is the strength of the new creation. It is the spirit of God’s coming dominion. It is the unique element of the new structure. It is the herald of the new time. It is the organic power of unity. It is the building up of the new humanity. In the Church of Jesus Christ, God is experienced. In the Church of complete love, God’s Spirit brings Christ’s kingdom of perfect justice to the earth. The experience of God means the rulership of God in the Church of Jesus Christ.

Here things do not proceed as the evangelicals say: “Come here, poor soul; be saved and receive forgiveness of your sins.” This is included, of course, but it is not the main thing. The main thing is that the kingdom of God is at hand. The kingdom of God descending from heaven is pressing to come. Without this, there is no proclamation; without this there is no service of the Word; without it there is no apostleship, no discipleship, no pupils in the school of Jesus Christ.- Eberhard Arnold
The final kingdom is completely realized in the future and also in the present. Where there is true faith, there is the true work of his Spirit and his community. And therefore the future cannot be cut off from the present with a knife; rather, where the Holy Spirit is, there is the power of the future kingdom of peace, justice, love, and brotherliness. Thus we believe in the brotherhood of the church of Jesus Christ.- Eberhard Arnold
