Questions We Know You Want to Ask:
We Learn, Live and Love.
We believe the Christ-follower allows all aspects of life to be shaped by Jesus Christ. We learn, live and love according to the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20), the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:37-40) and the Great Sermon (Matthew 5-7). The Great Commission tells us to learn about Jesus and teach others about Jesus, the Great Commandment encourages us to love God and our neighbor, and the Great Sermon by Jesus gives us the ways we can live faithfully.
We hold to orthodox Christian beliefs as defined by the Nicene Creed.
We hold to orthodox Christian beliefs as defined by the Nicene Creed. While Anabaptist churches have often been called “non-credal” or not following a specific declaration of faith, we use this Creed to outline our basic Christian beliefs.
The Nicene Creed is now over 1700 years old and still guides much of Christianity.
We live out those Christian beliefs via an Anabaptist lens.
Anabaptists are reformers who went beyond Luther and Calvin in practicing believer’s baptism and rejecting the union of Church and State. Since early followers were baptized as children, they were re-baptized after believing in Jesus for themselves. You may read more about this expression of Christianity here: Anabaptist Origins.
We belong to a network of churches called the Evana Network.
This is a gathering of Evangelical Anabaptist churches who seek to faithfully follow Jesus, tell others about the Good News, and act to bring life and transformation to our communities. More information may be found here: Evana Vision.
