The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork ~Psalm 19:1~
Worship Venue & Services
Nursery service available on Sunday at Whitestone
We believe that because o;f sin (both wrong done and right left undone) all of us become separated from God. We encourage everyone to accept the forgiveness offered through Jesus and, by the power of the Holy Spirit, to re-orient their lives to the teachings of Jesus.
We believe that as disciples of Jesus we are to relate to each other and to the world in the same loving and forDonate way that Jesus relates to us. By the power of the Holy Spirit we seek to continue the ministry of Jesus until he returns. Together we work to overcome evil, to live justly, and to be freed from the enslavement of lives focused on accumulation and self-preservation.
We believe that following Jesus means living lives of service to others, loving our enemies, and refusing to use coercion or violence. We practice adult believers’ baptism as a symbol of the forgiveness of sins, the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit, and of becoming part of the body of Christ on earth—the church.
Central to Mennonite teaching is the belief that Jesus’ earthly life was lived as a model for how we are to live and that He established the church to be a visible local assembly that gathers regularly for worship, Bible study and encouragement in right living. Mennonites understand that being a Christian is a lived faith not simply the profession of a set of beliefs.
Whitestone Mennonite Church is affiliated with other Mennonite congregations through membership in Mennonite Church USA and Mennonite World Conference.
Whitestone Mennonite Church History
In 1964, the congregation of the Pennsylvania Mennonite Church moved from the old facilities in the country to new facilities in Hesston, which they named Whitestone Mennonite Church. This move provided many opportunities to share our faith and as a result we have become a more rich and diverse people.
Whitestone Mennonite Church seeks to be defined, not by our buildings or by our traditions, but by our faithful response to God’s love in Jesus Christ. Through the power of the Holy Spirit we seek to be an expression of the breadth, strength, and diversity of God’s love for all people.
The Story of the Whitestone Crosses
The act of atonement, symbolized by the larger center cross; the act of accepting redemption, life as symbolized by the right hand cross; and the act of rejection symbolized by the lowest left hand cross.
Paul trusts that the crosses will provide a spirit of reflection on the magnitude of God’s love and Christ’s call to discipleship—his call to not only love those who love you, but also to love those who are your enemies and to demonstrate a generous and caring spirit to those in need.
