Mennonite Peace Manifesto

We, the undersigned Mennonite groups, organizations, and individuals, scattered throughout the world,


Believing in the Gospel of Jesus Christ which calls men to the service of peace and to stand against the sin of war,


And being convinced that God condemns the atrocious means and measures of war which are now being prepared by all nations in a constantly increasing stream,


Call all Mennonites throughout the world to fulfill the task entrusted to us by the history of our Mennonite forefathers in the propagation of the Gospel of peace.


We therefore appeal to all brethren and sisters to witness vigorously to our peace testimony in our congregations everywhere, and to work together to the end that we may give spiritual and material help to all who are convinced that God has called them to refuse military service, as well as to all others who may be called upon to suffer for their peace convictions.
