Core Values

Our community’s core values are at the heart of who we are.

Faith and fellowship

Faith is important here. Not our faith, or your faith… just faith. More than 40 other faith traditions are part of the EMU family. We’re all journeying together – though we may take different paths – toward deepening our faith, learning how we might live out that faith day to day, and reaching academic and professional goals. Learn more about Mennonites and EMU!

Service to others
