WARNING TO OUR CHURCHES by Bishop William Nicholson A prophetic word from North Carolina today, which got me thinking about what God says in Hebrews 12:25-29 that is a warning to the Churches that are undergoing turmoil and the fact the God is in the business of “removal”. The AncMC is not the only one; there are several others in Anchorage and around Alaska going through much of the same, as well as a Church I know very well in Honduras, a country I’ve become acquainted with. In Hebrews 12:25-29 it says: 25 See that you do not refuse him who is speaking. For if they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, much less will we escape if we reject him who warns from heaven. 26 At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” 27 This phrase, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of things that are shaken—that is, things that have been made—in order that the things that cannot be shaken may remain. 28 Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom … Continue reading
On September 27 & 29, 2017 during a United Alaska Moravian Ministry Directors meeting, a truly historic decision was made. Unanimously with the support of The Rt. Rev. Dr. William Nicholson, and The Rev. Lauden Kangele (a Presbyter of the Moravian Church), who is UAMM’s Chief Training Instructor, it was agreed for Bishop William Nicholson to ordain men and woman into the gospel ministry. These are individuals who are called of Jesus Christ, who know how to preach the gospel, who have planted churches and/or are willing to travel to plant Churches, and who need to perform the sacraments in their ministries. Many of the candidates are already in house churches, rental facilities, and some who have traveled widely throughout the world have already have planted Churches. The special ordination consecration service is scheduled for December 15, 2017, 7 pm at the House of Prayer Moravian Church in Wasilla, Alaska. None of this would have happened unless God gave our Evangelist and Prophet “Iply”, a vision of an undefiled movement that would begin among the indigenous people and spread to the nations. Indeed among these honored individuals is Evangelist Abraham George, whose testimony is a living example of God moving … Continue reading

UAMM’s Directors met with five good standing Board members of the Anchorage Moravian Church (AncMC) on December 3, 2017 and based upon the UAMM Book of Order agreed for a takeover of the Anchorage Moravian Church to preserve its good name and Moravian heritage. Since its creation in January 2001, the AncMC has abided by the Moravian Covenant for Christian Living which states that the congregation shall abide by decisions made by the official boards of the Church and agree to be governed “as individuals and as a congregation, by the enactments of its synod” and in the case of this Church UAMM’s General Church Conference and its Book of Order. This covenant has been broken in the area of unity and unwillingness to settle differences and is resorting to the threat of court, which is very un-Moravian and against the spirit of the Moravian Covenant for Christian Living. For over two months complaints have been received by Bishop Nicholson. Beginning September 2017, a small group of four new leaders led by Sho Walter Smith have been dividing the church and members have been leaving. Complaints received were due to improper removal of a good standing Church Trustee without prior … Continue reading
United Alaska Moravian Ministry Group (UAMM) is the God anointed covering that God has provided for the Churches. Churches that have UAMM’s covering include the the Anchorage Moravian Church, Wasilla House of Prayer, Nanraumali Agayuun Moravian Church, Big Lake Fellowship, New Fire Moravian Church as well as the Kenai Peninsula Moravian Churches, who historically have desired to remain in the heritage of the historic Moravian Church. UAMM literally came out of the crucible of conflict because the traditional Church persecuted them for changing their worship style and allowing the Holy Spirit gifts to function. UAMM is a covering for those spirit-filled, bible believing, and “sign and wonders” Christians who want to make a difference for the Kingdom of God. With support and funding, especially by the Anchorage Moravian Church in November 2012, under the leadership of Bishop William Nicholson and a delegation of four other Church members, UAMM was recognized as a Ministry Group by the Moravian Unity Board in Herrnhut, Germany. Since then with four churches under UAMM, it has been involved mission projects in Honduras and recently supporting Churches that are evangelical in Africa. In February 2017 UAMM grew to 18 Churches. Now as of October 3, 2017 … Continue reading
PLEASE KNOW THAT BISHOP NICHOLSON DID NOT RESIGN FROM HIS POST AT THE ANCHORAGE MORAVIAN CHURCH. HE HAS SIMPLY MOVED INTO ANOTHER POSITION HIGHER UP INTO UAMM’S position as President/Administrator. The AncMC is still where he attends and supports totally! The following is his last message as Senior Pastor of AncMC: God’s presence is upon us tonight! God loves it when we come together to let Him know we love him and want to bless Him and learn from him and respond to His love. Tonight is my last message as Pastor of the Anchorage Moravian Church (AncMC). I end my almost 16 years as Senior Pastor of the AncMC and feel a bit of grief and loss, but thankful that the Joint Boards of the AncMC have released me so I can better do my work as a Bishop. The AncMC will continue to be my home church. It is my request that all of you pray for the leaders of the church, be regular in your attendance, tithe sacrifically, and that God will continue to allow this church to grow under new pastoral leadership. Tonight my proper title will be Bishop and I will speak … Continue reading
