1999 Mennonite Brethren Confession of Faith (current)

Description

Mennonite Brethren have their roots in the Anabaptist-Mennonite movement of sixteenth-century Europe. However, as a nineteenth-century renewal movement, Mennonite Brethren blended Lutheran Pietism and Baptist Evangelicalism with their Anabaptist roots. For Mennonite Brethren, their confessional statements functioned as a public testimony of what they believed, based on their understanding of the Christian Bible. The Confession of Faith serves as an outline for instruction, church polity, and discipline.

Below is a listing of the 18 articles in the 1999 Confession of Faith (currently in effect), with links to Commentary and Pastoral Application on each article (Confession of Faith: Commentary and Pastoral Application [Winnipeg, Man.; Hillsboro, Kan.: Board of Faith and Life and Kindred Productions, 2000]).
