Hyattsville Mennonite Church (HMC) shares in the faith, fellowship, and labors of the Anabaptist tradition through memberships in Allegheny Mennonite Conference (AMC) and in the Mennonite Church USA (MCUSA). Since September 2011, HMC has also officially been a member of the Supportive Communities Network (SCN), a program of the Brethren Mennonite Council for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Interests (BMC); SCN is a network of Mennonite and Church of the Brethren communities who are publicly affirming of LGBTQIA+ members.

Our church governance is congregationally based, which means that we accept the authority and responsibility given to those assembled “in the name of Christ,” as described in Matthew 18.
