What We Believe
Mennonites believe in the centrality and inspiration of the Bible and in Jesus Christ as the one sent by God to bring reconciliation between the Creator and a broken world. Mennonites share essential core beliefs with Christians of Catholic and Protestant and Evangelical persuasions. We emphasize the connections between faith, words, and actions. We believe baptism and church membership should be voluntary.
Mennonites believe peacebuilding is an achievable way of life. Because God is loving and just, Mennonites feel called to live lives that reflect this reality. We believe that peace and wholeness are real possibilities in time and space. It is how God intends us to live here and now, and we have been given all of the necessary tools to achieve this through our faith in Jesus Christ.
