Interchurch dialogue

As a global communion of Anabaptist-related churches, Mennonite World Conference engages in dialogue with other Christian world communions and organizations. Most recently, MWC has been involved in dialogue with:

Trilateral dialogue between Mennonites, Catholics and Lutherans

Baptism and Incorporation into the Body of Christ, the Church: final report of the Trilateral Dialogue on baptism (2020)

Die Taufe und die Eingliederung in den Leib Christi, die Kirche: Lutherisch/mennonitisch/römisch-katholische trilaterale Gespräche

On-going Dialogues

After a one-year hiatus for logistical reasons, plans for dialogue between Mennonite World Conference (MWC) and World Communion of Reformed Churches (WCRC) have resumed. The dialogue, which will likely commence in 2021, is envisioned to have three components: praxeological, theological, and historical.
