Welcome to the Church of the Brethren

“Together, as the Church of the Brethren, we will passionately live and share the radical transformation and holistic peace of Jesus Christ through relationship-based neighborhood engagement. To move us forward, we will develop a culture of calling and equipping disciples who are innovative, adaptable, and fearless.” More on the Compelling Vision – Visión conjunta y motivadora – Vizyon Konvenkan
