A Third Way Faith: Anabaptist Theology in Context

  • Trinity Mennonite Church 4334 W Vista Ave Glendale, AZ 85301 (map)

May 9-10

Trinity Mennonite Church in partnership with Sonoran Theological Group will be hosting a seminar on the theological roots and relevance of the Anabaptist way of following Jesus.  

Emerging out of the Radical Reformation of the 16th century, Anabaptists ("re-baptizers") were persecuted by both Protestants and Catholics.  The notion of the “Third Way” emerged in the midst of this persecution. Anabaptism has persevered over the centuries and today offers a new application of the third way. It is marked by distinctives such as believers baptism, peace, and perhaps above all, following the teachings of Christ as a way of life. Today there is a growing interest in Anabaptism, its history, teachings and application across a variety of traditions. The influence has been broad in current Christian influencers including Hauerwas, McLaren, McKnight, and Hart. 

Join us as we consider key elements, doctrine, and why this matters both for Anabaptists and for those curious about the Anabaptist way. We will also consider how bridges may be built for all of us as we seek to follow Jesus in every tradition.
