What is a Mennonite? 

The Mennonite church arose during the time of the Reformation in Europe, in the 16th century. They were known as the Radical Reformers, and were often persecuted for their culture-threatening beliefs, which defied the state-connected churches which dominated the landscape. These beliefs included following Jesus in every day life; approaching the whole of Scripture in light of the life and teachings of Jesus; and practicing non-violence and refusing to participate in war. These early Anabaptists (meaning re-baptizers, because of their belief in adult baptism) strove to be a distinct community, set apart from the power and privilege of the state and the state-aligned church.

In more recent times, Anabaptists have reclaimed that name, and are found around the world, celebrating their commitment to Jesus and his way in many languages, and through many cultures.  We share these common commitments with Mennonite World Conference.
