Our Christian fellowship first began pulling something together about “what we believe” in response to the request of a theology professor from the seminary of a local university. This professor brought out one of his graduate classes on a field trip and had specifically hoped we would share with his students our “vision and purpose,” our “historical connections to the Anabaptist tradition” and “how we relate to those outside our immediate fellowship.” In regard to the first area, our vision and purpose, it soon became apparent how humbling it could be to carefully consider such weighty matters and then, under the light of that reflection, to realize just how far short we have fallen in attaining our goals. Nonetheless, our great motive over the decades can perhaps be summarized as a desire to participate in the creation of what one man has called communities of “exemplary Christian existence.”
