As Mennonites we cherish our Anabaptist tradition. This tradition which emerged in the early 1500s in The Netherlands has emphasized the importance of Christ as the pattern for our daily lives. Consequently it is our intent to reflect the love of Christ in all our activities and relationships with one another.
