As long as we withdraw from the completeness of the whole, as long as we in a small-minded way put what is individual and isolated in the foreground, we are torn by untruthfulness and confusion. We are in conflict. We lose ourselves in superficialities. We persist in folly. We remain in death.- Eberhard Arnold
- Eberhard Arnold The Early Christians
The Christian was baptized into Christ, the Crucified, in such a way that the water of baptism could be compared with the blood of Christ; he had made his own the conflict and victory of the cross against all the demonic powers of the world epoch, and lived from now on in the power and future of the Risen One.

With a company of warriors faithful unto death the message broke in upon the old world.

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.- Eberhard Arnold
Peace is born when the body of justice is brought to the light. The Church of Jesus Christ is the organism of this body in justice, peace and joy of the Spirit. At the given time justice shall arise. With the rising of the sun the day of great peace breaks. In Jesus the day has dawned. It comes anew in Christ. Peace is guaranteed when justice arises resplendent.- Eberhard Arnold
