History The Church of the Brethren, founded in 1708, is a New Testament Church that follows the teaching of Jesus and emphasizes believing and belonging, spirituality and service, faith and faithful living. Brethren share many of the orthodox beliefs held by other Christians, including: • the authority of the Bible as our rule of faith and practice • the belief that God exists in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit • the virgin birth, earthly ministry, death, resurrection and ultimate return of Jesus • the state of the human race and the nature of sin; the belief that faith in Jesus as Lord and Savior is the only way to have an eternal, saving relationship with God • that we are to go into the world and make disciples.
