1 Review
Schleitheim functioned for many early Mennonites as a confession of faith, both as a statement of the Christian way of life within brotherhood, as well as a witness and mission to all people. The document was sent out far and wide, inviting its readers to identify with this manifestation of God at work among His people. The Schleitheim Confession gave substance to a movement which until then had largely been without form, a movement seemingly as varied as the individuals espousing the cause. Schleitheim brought structure and focus.
