Jesus' Life and Teachings

Jesus is the son of God who showed in his life and teachings how to be faithful, and through his cross and resurrection redeemed the world.

Because Mennonites choose to follow Jesus and his teachings, we take to heart Jesus' Sermon on the Mount.

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.

Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called childen of God.

Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
Matthew 5:3-12

To live faithfully means that we take the life and teachings of Christ seriously by living lives of peacemaking, service, and activism.
