WHO IS the Church of the Brethren Anyway?

Who is the Church of the Brethren? In the New Testament, the word "brethren" describes a community of men and women who chose another way of living: the way of Jesus. The Church of the Brethren, begun nearly three centuries ago in Germany, still draws people who want to continue Jesus' work of faithfulness and loving service. For guidance, Brethren look to the scriptures rather than to doctrine. Traditionally, our faith emphasizes compassion, peacemaking, and simplicity and more recently community. We baptize those who seek to follow Jesus; we anoint for physical and spiritual healing; and in our love feast we re-enact the Last Supper, at which Jesus washed his disciples' feet and offered the bread and cup of communion.
