Sugar Creek Mennonite Church

Who Are The Mennonites?

Community - Mennonites hold many common core beliefs and they value their history as a people of God  Their beliefs in God and Jesus Christ link them with other Christian denominations. 

However, Mennonites live out God's call in some ways that make them distinct.  Worshiping as a community of believers and studying the Bible to listen to what God is saying to the church today are very important to Mennonites.  They also believe that the church is called by God to share the good news of Jesus in word and deed, showing others a glimpse of what life is like under God's rule.

Adult Baptism - Mennonites practice adult, or "believer's," baptism.  Baptism symbolizes God's grace washing people clean of sin through Jesus' death on the cross.  At baptism, people make a public commitment to identify with and follow Jesus.

Peace and Love - Mennonites believe that Jesus, when he lived on earth, revealed a way for people to live peacefully and nonviolently.  Mennonites believe in giving ultimate loyalty to God rather than to the nations in which they live, or to the military.

Helping Others - Mennonites aspire to follow the example and words of Jesus Christ in everyday life, including service to people in need.
Open To All - From the beginning, Mennonites have shared their faith and passion for Jesus with others.  Mennonite churches are open to anyone who confesses Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and wants to live as Jesus taught.
