What We Believe
Howard-Miami Mennonite Church follows the Confession of Faith in Mennonite Perspective and is a member of the Evana Network. As Mennonites, or Anabaptists, we believe:
Following Jesus in daily life is a central value.
It is possible to follow Jesus as Lord above nationalism, racism or materialism.
It is possible to follow Jesus as a peacemaker. We believe that we can practice the way of Jesus’ reconciling love in human conflicts and warfare, without having to strike out in fear to defend ourselves.
We can live life simply and in service to others as a witness to God’s love for the world.

Our mission exists to love, glorify and worship God, to love and serve others, to share the Gospel, and to encourage each other to become fully devoted followers of Jesus, empowered by the Holy Spirit.
