1921 Garden City Confession of Faith would be upheld in the ultra-conservative and moderate circles I believe.

I'm not sure if we adopted one from another group or if we wrote it ourselves. I'm not a member at this time and I'm still trying to make a choice between my church and a more conservative one in the area.
We would be mostly non-affiliated with anyone and if you just have to know who, I can private message it. I would prefer to keep my location off the web.

And although I am attending a non-Mennonite church, that's very close to my understandings on most things. You can find it here:

Is it biblical? Is it Christlike? Is it loving? Is it true? How can I find out?

The EPMC and a few others might. But the NWF uses the 1964 version, called Christian Fundamentals, adopted in Hartville OH.

Pilgrim conference, a "descendant" of EPMC, does.

The Midwest church I used to attend also affirms the 1921 confession of faith, and it would best be characterised as moderate-conservative transitioning to fundamental-conservative.

I've never been able to find out the history on why it never affirmed the 1964 statement (where it was drafted); I'm guessing it was about the same time that church and the rest of Nationwide parted ways.

Our statement of faith is the Nicene Creed.

I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.

I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.

I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.

Amen.

As it turns out, the cynical may be legitimately excused for thinking that we are not actually that serious about it. Well, I'll have you know, actually we are very serious about it, somber even, lending an air of great gravitas to our pronouncements and statements, formulated as they are in a spirit of solemn rectitude, marshaling all our scriptural support for a position that is beyond compromise, immutable as Holy writ itself, unassailable. Right up until we change our collective mind.
