Beachy Amish Mennonite

The Beachy Amish Mennonite constituency is a loose confederation of Anabaptist churches appropriately called a “fellowship,” which is in contrast to a more hierarchical conference structure common amongst similar conservative Mennonite constituencies. Beachys are neither Amish nor Mennonite, but “Amish Mennonite”. The influences of both the Amish and Mennonites are distinguishable, yet the Beachys affiliate with neither group. Because of the fellowship structure, few common characteristics are shared by all Beachy congregations. Some similarities include adhering to the Dordrecht Confession of Faith and practice varying degrees of orthodox Anabaptist practice, such as nonresistance, separation from the state, and adult baptism.
