Our Story

Continuing the work of Jesus…

Peacefully.

The Antelope Park Church has a rich and enduring heritage.

Our longstanding commitment to peace and justice includes a deep regard for human life and dignity. Brethren reach worldwide to help repair the ravages of poverty, ignorance, exploitation, and catastrophic events.
Living peacefully, to the Brethren, means treating each person with the attentive, compassionate respect that all human beings deserve.

 

Simply.

We try to simplify our lives. Practicing a modest nonconformity, we think carefully about our daily choices. The ideal of simplicity guides our decisions: How will we conduct our business, raise our children, spend our leisure time, tend our natural resources? How can we live comfortably, but without excess or ostentation?

For the Brethren, such considerations are not a requirement, but a privilege.

 

Together.

Whether worshiping, serving, learning, or celebrating, Brethren act in community. Together, we study the Bible to discern God’s will; we make decisions as a group, and each person’s voice matters.

Our congregation welcomes all who wish to share with us in another way of living: the way of Christian discipleship, life in community, fulfillment in service.

We live out our faith in community. In other words, the life and work of the Church of the Brethren begins within hundreds of congregations but reaches around the world.
