Meet the Board of Faith and Life
The Canadian Mennonite Brethren board of faith and life (BFL) provides spiritual guidance and direction in matters of faith, theology, ethics, and Christian living, and upholds biblical and ethical integrity through the MB Confession of Faith. The BFL also provides resources (e.g. pamphlet series) and organizes events (e.g. study conferences and pastors credentialing orientation).—Eds
