Mennonite Church USA

The Mennonite Church USA represents the largest group of Mennonite Christians in the United States. Though the organization is recent, the body has roots in the Radical Reformation of the 16th century. Mennonites make up a large portion of a movement within Christianity called Anabaptism (meaning “baptized again”). The formation of an Anabaptist congregation in Zürich, Switzerland in 1525 is considered by many to be the beginning of a recognizable “Mennonite” doctrinal and historical existence. They were nicknamed after the Dutch Anabaptist leader Menno Simons (1496-1561).
