More answers to questions!

The Third Way Café is designed for conversation and comment on current, sometimes controversial topics.  It has a link to Frequently Asked Questions which answers questions you might not even think to ask.  A brief history written by one of our younger church historians describes our roots in the Anabaptist movement beginning in 1525.  We hope you will visit us at Slate Hill Mennonite Church, but you can find Mennonite Congregations in other locations in the United States and Canada.

Beliefs

While Mennonites share most foundational beliefs with other Christians, you might want to look at our Confession of Faith from a Mennonite Perspective.  We look to Jesus for salvation and as a model for how to live. We interpret the Bible His perspective.  One thing that often is listed as a distinctive of Mennonites is our commitment to peace and reconciliation.
