Mission & Distinctives
- Jesus is the CENTER of our faith.
- Community if the CENTER of our lives.
- Reconciliation is the CENTER of our work.
Mennonite Mission Network serves 21 area conferences of Mennonite Church USA in all their diversity: rural and urban congregations, younger and older populations, long-standing and new immigrant communities, speaking multiple languages, and many with varying convictions about how to be God’s faithful people in today’s world.
We embrace this calling with a commitment to serve the whole church in all of its parts. We seek to engage challenges that we face as a diverse body of Christ with understanding and reconciliation.
The following nine beliefs inform and guide our approach to ministry:
The mission and glory belong to God.
- God’s redemptive reign sets the agenda for our mission.
- Mission is rooted in God’s love, focused on Jesus, and empowered by the Holy Spirit.
- Our mission is a joyful response to God’s abundant grace.
The church is the primary model and messenger of God’s love.
- The church is a sign of God’s redemptive reign.
- Faithful congregations extend and reproduce themselves.
- The church expects opposition and is willing to suffer.
Reconciliation and transformation are possible.
- The gospel reconciles and transforms creation.
- Jesus’ earthly ministry shows that the gospel must be adapted to cultural context.
- The final victory already belongs to God through Christ.
Mennonite Mission Network is open to applicants from all Christian traditions. There is an expectation that you will participate in the life of the local partner Mennonite congregation.
