Information, Institutions, Beliefs
For other Mennonite institutions, including links to congregations,
conferences, missions and other organizations, schools, and publishing
houses, see MennoLink.
One way to learn about who Mennonites are is to study
their beliefs. Beliefs have a way of varying from century to century and
continent to continent. Nevertheless, a comparison of two confessions of
faith from different centuries and different continents suggests that some
kind of historical and theological relationship exists between the sixteenth
century Anabaptists and the twentieth century Mennonites.
