First Mennonite Church Of San Francisco

What We Believe

First Mennonite Church of San Francisco claims a rich Anabaptist faith that emphasizes community, discipleship (following the way of Jesus in everyday life), and peacemaking and reconciliation. We have attempted to summarize our way of living out this faith through our Core Values and Practices and our Covenant, which people in our community sign every year to signal our commitment to each other and our shared beliefs.

Though we are grounded in our Christian Anabaptist tradition, we think it's important to create lots of space in which people can ask questions about faith, life and ethics. We value honesty, authenticity and good conversations about things that matter. We also treasure the insights we get from fellow travelers in other Christian traditions, and in Judaism, Buddhism and other faiths.
