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

Use the menus above to explore our identity and ministries. We have almost 90,000 members in over 800 congregations across the United States and Puerto Rico, with sister churches in many countries.

Based in the Anabaptist and Pietist faith traditions, the Church of the Brethren is a Historic Peace Church. We celebrated our 300th anniversary in 2008.
