What does it look like to follow and share Jesus in a distinctly evangelical and Anabaptist way?
(Above: The ram caught in the thicket - Genesis 22:13 - is an old and time-honored symbol among Anabaptists) Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ....
We are Christian believers in the Anabaptist/Mennonite tradition who believe that evangelism and our Anabaptist tradition are mutually integrated and must be lived out in a truly Biblical context. Many believers from different Anabaptist traditions are coming together to reclaim these historical and theological guidelines to Christian living and being. We ache, we pray, for revival and renewal in Mennonite Churches!
"Evangelical" - Christians are compelled by the power of the Holy Spirit to share the Good News of salvation and new life in Jesus Christ with those who have never heard or never heeded. "Anabaptist" – Christians whose values and convictions trace their roots to the 16th century Radical Reformation in Europe.
“Jesus said, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.’” (John 14:6, New Living Translation)
"So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, 'Come back to God!' For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ." (2 Corinthians 5: 20-21, NLT)

“This is a trustworthy saying, and everyone should accept it: ‘Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.’”1 Timothy 1:15 (New Living Translation)
Since "no one may truly know Christ except one who follows him in life" (John Denck, 16th century), Anabaptists have emphasized a life of walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.
“But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves. For if you listen to the word and don’t obey, it is like glancing at your face in a mirror. You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like. But if you look carefully into the perfect law that sets you free, and if you do what it says and don’t forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it.”James 1:22-25 (New Living Translation)
Our Common Convictions...as Evangelical Anabaptists We believe in the authority of God's written word, the Bible. As Christians we seek to live daily under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. We recognize the life, ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus as central to our lives as Christians and to how we understand God's Word. Recognizing Jesus as central includes His peacemaking approach to all of life. We believe that we are only able to live out the Christian life by the presence and power of the Holy Spirit within and among us. Anabaptist describes the theological and historical perspective from which we have understood what it means to be Christ followers. We embrace the Confession of Faith in a Mennonite Perspective, 1995 (in its entirety) as most faithfully representing our doctrinal understandings of the Christian faith. Evangelical describes our conviction that to be Christian means to be called to share the good news of the whole gospel of Jesus Christ with the world. We believe that Jesus Christ, who lived, died and rose from the dead by the power of God's redeeming love, is the only way to salvation.
