Who We Are

Mennonite Church BC (MCBC) exists in a covenanted partnership with

 Mennonite Church Canada

which also includes the following regions

MC Alberta MC Saskatchewan MC Manitoba MC Eastern Canada

MCBC is a faith community of Christian Anabaptist Mennonite churches
with a passionate allegiance to Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Lord. 

Our purpose is to enable congregations to, individually and collectively,
engage most fully in the mission of Christ. 

We are called by God to be followers of Jesus Christ and,
by the power of the Holy Spirit, to grow as communities of grace,
joy, and peace so that God’s healing and hope flow through us to the world. 

We hold to these essentials of Anabaptism...

Jesus is the Centre of our Faith

We are a believing people who seek to:

~follow Jesus in daily life~
~interpret the Scriptures in the Spirit of Jesus~
~promise their highest loyalty to Jesus Christ~

Community is the Centre of our Lives

We are a Christ-centred community of believing people who tend to see:

~forgiveness as being essential for community~
~Dialogue and group discernment as necessary for the interpretation of Scripture~
~small face-to-face groups as central to the life of the church~

Reconciliation is the Centre of our Work

We are a believing, Christ-centred community of people who are called to:

~help reconcile people to God~
~help reconcile people to each other~
~serve as God’s ambassadors of reconciliation in the world~
