Doylestown Mennonite ChurchMembers are people who commit themselves to following Jesus as the way to know God in relationship, by confessing Jesus as Lord and Savior.  This means to follow Jesus as currently understood with a commitment to learn more about Jesus as recorded in the Bible.   This includes committing one’s self to all followers of Jesus around the world as expressed in this local congregation known as Doylestown Mennonite Church.  Since the call is to active following, a lifetime journey of ongoing discipleship is necessary.  This life of discipleship is guided by and recognizes the following core values:
