From its beginnings as a renewal movement in Russia in 1860, the Mennonite Brethren Church has grown into a communion of churches that spans the globe. This growth has brought into the church a richness of peoples and cultures that reflects the diversity of God’s family.
Menno Simons, the 16th century Dutch leader of the Anabaptists, was known for repeating: “No one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ” (1 Cor. 3:11). This conviction is reflected in the Confession of Faith of the International Community of Mennonite Brethren (ICOMB) expressed in this study guide.
Sixteen writers from eight countries reflect on the meaning of different parts of the confession. Readers will note that a strong unity of faith pervades all chapters.
The leadership of ICOMB, the authors and editors fervently hope that this volume will be studied in all our global churches, and will strengthen our united witness in building the kingdom of our Lord.
