Renewal 2021

As we look ahead to the 500th anniversary of the beginnings of the Anabaptist movement, the Faith and Life Commission will host webinars in June 2021 focused on baptism.  

The interactive webinars will provide teaching and offer opportunity for discussion about this central practice in the Anabaptist-Mennonite tradition: 

  • historical and theological context for baptism, focusing especially on pastoral questions surrounding baptismal practices;   
  • important questions arising from the Trilateral Dialogue on Baptism report regarding new members who were baptized as infants.
