General Information

The Church of the Brethren is a Christian denomination in the Anabaptist-Pietist tradition that began in Germany in 1708 and came to America in 1719. The first congregation was established in Germantown, Pennsylvania. Today the denomination numbers over 115,000 members across the U.S., and through mission work has established churches in the Caribbean, Central America, India and Africa.

The Church of the Brethren strives to follow the teachings and example of Jesus, looking to Scripture and the gathered community for guidance. Brethren believe that the church is a vital resource for our spiritual journey, and a great encouragement in living out our Christian faith and commitment in daily life.

The Church of the Brethren has been a witness and worker for peace and reconciliation in times and places of conflict. We are among the first to respond with relief aid and assistance in times of emergency and disaster, and we send volunteers around the world through Brethren Volunteer Service. Because we all are on level ground at the foot of the cross we stand against racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination. We strive to take good care of God’s creation and to live more simply so that others may simply live.

The Easton Church of the Brethren, first organized in 1881, and now numbering over 175 members, offers you the companionship and support of a caring and committed church family. We invite you to join with us in following Jesus: peacefully, simply, together.
