What is a Mennonite?

The Mennonites are a group of Christian Anabaptist denominations named after Menno Simons (1496–1561), who, through his writings, articulated and formalized the teachings of earlier Swiss founders. Over the years, Mennonites have become known as one of the historic peace churches because of their commitment to nonviolence. More about Mennonites.
