The doors of the Listowel Mennonite congregation first opened April 28, 1963, and have always been open to all! What a few local families started has become a thriving congregation in the small town setting of Listowel, Ontario. A few new buildings and a lot of new members later, and we are a congregation of all different ages and backgrounds. In 2013, we celebrated and praised God for 50 years as a church, and look forward to God’s work in the next 50 and beyond.
Who are the Mennonites?
Mennonites are a group of Christians committed to following Jesus from an Anabaptist perspective. This is reflected in our Christ-centered practices of pacifism (or non-violent resistance) and adult baptism, but it’s also much more than this. It means we believe that Christ has called us to interpret and live out the teachings of the Bible in the context of community. It means we join in the work of Christ everywhere in the world, and involve ourselves in peace and justice work inspired by Jesus’ love.
