The Grace Brethren (not Church of the Brethren, Brethren in Christ, or Mennonite) movement is a group of like-minded churches who are passionate for Christ, the Gospel, and the Great Commission. When Alexander Mack and those with the same convictions began the first Grace Brethren church in Germany in 1708, they applauded the reformation, but also cheered for more. They wanted a greater return to the Scriptures. Today, several thousand Grace Brethren congregations around the world have this same commitment to the Scriptures while striving to put their convictions into practice.

What we believe determines how we live!
