Interchurch dialogue

As a global communion of Anabaptist-related churches, Mennonite World Conference engages in dialogue with other Christian world communions and organizations. Most recently, MWC has been involved in dialogue with:

Trilateral dialogue between Mennonites, Catholics and Lutherans

Baptism and Incorporation into the Body of Christ, the Church: final report of the Trilateral Dialogue on baptism (2020)

Die Taufe und die Eingliederung in den Leib Christi, die Kirche: Lutherisch/mennonitisch/römisch-katholische trilaterale Gespräche

On-going dialogues

After a one-year hiatus for logistical reasons, plans for dialogue between Mennonite World Conference (MWC) and World Communion of Reformed Churches (WCRC) have resumed. The dialogue is envisioned to have three components: praxeological, theological, and historical.
