Our Identity and Values

Our Identity

Mennonite Church Eastern Canada
         is a diverse community
  Transformed by the love of God
  Inspired by the hope we find in Jesus
  Called to action
        by the power of the Holy Spirit.

We believe that God is calling Mennonite Church Eastern Canada to be an Anabaptist Mennonite church; a covenanted partner in Mennonite Church Canada and Mennonite World Conference. This is a continuation of a historic tradition that emphasizes: Jesus is the centre of our faith; community is the centre of our life; and reconciliation is the centre of our work. As a community of congregations, we seek to join God’s mission in the world, encouraging all to respond to God’s gift of love revealed in Jesus, as described in scripture.

Confession of Faith

This Confession of Faith in a Mennonite Perspective takes its place in this rich confessional history. The historic creeds of the early Christian church, which were assumed as foundational for Mennonite confessions from the beginning, are basic to this confession as well.

This confession is the work of two Mennonite groups in North America, the Mennonite Church (MC) and the General Conference Mennonite Church (GC).
