Confession of Faith In a Mennonite Perspective

Confession of Faith In a Mennonite Perspective

Members of Mennonite Church USA share a Mennonite or Anabaptist perspective on matters of faith. It’s how we understand our commitment to following the way of Jesus Christ.

  • Following Jesus in daily life is a central value.
    We believe that it is possible to follow Jesus as Lord above nationalism, racism or materialism.
  • We believe that it is possible to follow Jesus as a peacemaker. We believe that we can practice the way of Jesus’ reconciling love in human conflicts and warfare, without having to strike out in fear to defend ourselves.
  • We believe that we can live life simply and in service to others as a witness to God’s love for the world.
