Beliefs
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.
