Notice of Motion: Confession of Faith changes

by CCMBC Communications


The Board of Faith and Life moves:

  • To make a typographical correction in the 1999 Edition of the MB Confession of Faith Article 4 (Sin and Evil) and all related editions, to remove the reference to Psalm 52:1-7 and replace it with Psalm 51:1-7.
  • To change the Confession of Faith title
    • from “Confession of Faith of the U.S. and Canadian Conferences of the Mennonite Brethren Churches”
    • to “Confession of Faith of the Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches”.

This follows a decision in 2014 by the US MB Conference to separate Confession of Faith documents, and subsequent decision at Gathering 2016 that separate documents will now be maintained for Canada and the USA.


These changes are to be voted on at Gathering 2018, taking place July 11-14, 2018. Only pastors and delegates may vote on motions. Each church may send 1 pastor plus 1 delegate per every 25 members. If you are serving as a delegate for your church, please indicate that during registration.

  • Early bird registration: $199 (available March 1 – April 30, 2018)
