From diverse voices within Lancaster Mennonite Conference, a clear Mission Statement of identity emerged – we are people of Christ’s peace. This statement is grounded in our unique understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ and the mission of love, peace, and reconciliation God has called us to as a fellowship of congregations.
We are people called and changed by a relationship with Jesus. We are sent into the world to be people of Christ’s peace – empowered by the Holy Spirit. Our sole purpose is to join God’s mission to the world. Together we join God in restoration and reconciliation in our homes, within our congregations, across the street, and around the world.
God has a deep desire for a relationship with humanity. Through the peace of Christ, humanity finds rest from hostility. We are called by a missionary God to enter fully into the ministry of reconciliation in our homes, congregations, neighborhoods and around the world.
Empowered by God’s Holy Spirit, Lancaster Mennonite Conference is developing new, revitalized, and multiplying congregations for God’s present and coming kingdom.
Because our faith and life are centered in Jesus Christ, we value…
a way of seeing the world through God’s reign
a way of reading Scripture through Jesus
a way of living the Christian life as disciples
