Mennonite Brethren Chaplain

About the Mennonite Brethren

  • Passion to pursue His heart
  • Passion to serve this needy world
  • Passion for His creation
  • Passion for the lost, lonely, and hurting

Beliefs in more detail

We believe in God as eternal Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God created and sustains the universe. We believe that God became human in Jesus Christ. Jesus came to restore the world because humans have rejected God in disobedience. He died on the cross, making it possible for us to accept a renewed relationship with God. He rose from the dead, broke the power of sin and death and frees us to live in obedience to God’s will. We believe that God the Holy Spirit invites all people to be reconciled with God and to join the global family of faith. 

As Christians, we are called to turn:

from ignorance of God to a personal relationship with God.

from the bondage of sin and past mistakes to freedom, forgiveness, and healing.

from individualism to interdependence with others in fellowship.

from lifestyle choices that harm us, others, and the earth to choices that nurture wholeness, healing, and joy.
