About Us

WHO IS PRINCE OF PEACE?

 

Prince of Peace is a Living Peace Church. We have been passing on Nonviolence for over 300 Years.

 

At Prince of Peace Church of the Brethren, our doors are open to every soul seeking to welcome Jesus Christ into their hearts or learn about another way of living. We foster a community where we teach individuals to show their love for The Lord and for one another through worship and community service. Members of our church are those who build relationships with our family through community groups, volunteer activities, worship services or learning. We welcome all individuals seeking God’s love. We teach the love of our Savior in prayer, and invite you to open up your hearts and allow his grace to penetrate into your soul and being. At Prince of Peace we foster diversity. We believe that Christ showed us by his actions both during his life and at the cross that we must love and accept everyone.

 

 

What we believe

The central emphasis of the Church of the Brethren is not a creed, but a commitment to follow Christ in simple obedience, to be faithful disciples in the modern world. As do most other Christians, the Brethren believe in God as Creator and loving Sustainer. We confess the Lordship of Christ, and we seek to be guided by the Holy Spirit in every aspect of life, thought, and mission.

 

We hold the New Testament as our guidebook for living, affirming with it the need for lifelong and faithful study of the Scriptures. Brethren believe that God has revealed an unfolding purpose for the human family and the universe through the Hebrew Scriptures (or Old Testament), and fully in the New Testament. We hold the New Testament as the record of the life, ministry, teaching, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and of the beginnings of the life and thought of the Christian church.

 

Faithful following of Jesus Christ and obedience to the will of God as revealed in the Scriptures have led us to emphasize principles that we believe are central in true discipleship. Among these are peace and reconciliation, simple living, integrity of speech, family values, and service to neighbors near and far
