Ask a Question!

Answers to these questions (and even the questions themselves) come from a North American perspective on Mennonites. For instance, the answer to “What do Mennonites wear?” is different in the U.S. than in Africa. And while Mennonites mostly agree on key points, the denomination is not structured with an overall authority (other than Jesus). So Mennonites practice their beliefs in different ways. Mennonites in other parts of the world, as well as in North America, express their faith in different styles of worship and living. The best way to learn about Mennonites is to check out a congregation near you and get to know them.
